Martinez missed Saturday's preseason opener against the Jets due to an illness, Zack Blatt of NJ.com reports.

Martinez was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list less than two weeks ago, but this illness doesn't appear to be related to his stint in the COVID protocols. The 27-year-old linebacker is a key contributor on Big Blue's defense when healthy. Martinez's status for Week 2 of the preseason against the Browns is still to be determined.
