Autry returned Saturday for the 1st time since a Week 11 knee injury and immediately delivered his top fantasy score of the season.
Autry racked up season highs in total (7) and solo (5) tackles in the loss to the Texans, adding a sack among 2 QB hits, forcing a fumble and deflecting 2 passes.
The quick turnaround to face the Cowboys on Thursday night will add a challenge, and Autry sat out Monday’s practice with a biceps issue that also landed him on last week’s injury report. If he’s ready to play, though, he’ll face an offense that has allowed 9 sacks over just the past 2 games – with tackle upside in Dallas’ rushing lean.
