Cowboys' Zack Martin: Has cleanup procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin underwent surgery to address his ankle injury Tuesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Martin's ankle injury dates back to at least October, but it didn't hinder him from starting every game of the 2019 regular season at right guard. The perennial Pro Bowler is expected to be ready to participate in OTAs in April, which would put him on track for the start of the 2020 season.

Martin sandwiched two limited practices around an off-day Thursday. His potential absence would be a blow to the Dallas offense, but the 28-year-old has yet to miss a game this year.

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (back) will play in Sunday's game versus the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Martin was taken out of the season opener as a precaution, but there was justified concern when he was a limited participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday. However, now he's back at full speed and will start at left guard.

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Removal described as precautionary
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin was taken out of the lineup in the second half of Week 1's win over the Giants, but Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett described the removal as precautionary during his Monday press conference, the team's website reports.

"Zack seemed to do fine in the game," Garrett said. "Obviously he hadn't practiced very much with that back injury, so we had an opportunity to take him out and put Xavier [Su'a-Filo] in, so we went ahead and did that. There was nothing in the game that said 'Let's take Zack out.' " Martin was limited during the preseason by a back issue but didn't appear on the final Week 1 injury report, and the All-Pro guard did look a little rusty in the first half Sunday, so his removal with the game well in hand isn't too alarming. Expect him to be ready to go for Week 2's clash with Washington.

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (back) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (back) returned to practice and is hopeful to play Sunday against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. "I felt good today moving around, getting some reps. I felt really good," Martin told reporters Monday.

Martin will look to increase his reps when the team returns to practice Wednesday in hopes of suiting up for Sunday's home opener. It's tough to say how big a role the Pro Bowler would have Sunday should he be cleared.

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Should practice next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (back) is expected back at practice next week as the Cowboys prepare for a Week 1 matchup against the Giants, the team's official website reports.

Speaking after Thursday's final preseason game, owner/GM Jerry Jones said he anticipated Martin, as well as Tyron Smith (back) and Amari Cooper (plantar fasciitis), would be able to practice in the leadup to the regular season opener. A healthy offensive line could be crucial to the Cowboys' early season chances of racking up wins if Ezekiel Elliott continues his holdout, and the team has to turn to rookie Tony Polland to start in the backfield.

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Seeing improvement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (back) is improving but has no set timetable for a return to practice, Mickey Spagnola of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Martin is dealing with a disc issue in his back, and while he is getting better, the team needs to stay "deliberate" in not returning him to the field too quickly. Xavier Su'a Filo was forced to play every offensive snap at right guard in the first preseason game since Cody Wichmann (calf) and Connor McGovern (pectoral) are also injured.

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Will sit Pro Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin won't play in the Pro Bowl due to a knee injury, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Martin battled a knee sprain throughout most of the season and missed two of the final three regular-season games, though he did play in both playoff contests. The 28-year-old would no doubt continue to play through the injury had the Cowboys advanced to the NFC Championship Game, but there's no reason for him take such a risk for the Pro Bowl.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys are locked into the No. 4 playoff spot, so there's no need for the team to risk injury to their Pro Bowl right guard. Martin will be replaced by Xavier Su'a-Filo in the lineup, and he'll look to shake his injury before the first round of playoffs.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Active status Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 16 tilt against the Buccaneers.

Cowboys' Zack Martin: Likely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Buccaneers, Austin Knoblauch of NFL.com reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin sat out last week's blowout loss to Indianapolis due to an MCL injury, and his Week 16 status remains up in the air. The Pro Bowl guard was able to log limited practice sessions Thursday and Friday, and he could be a game-time decision versus the Buccaneers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports.

Coach Jason Garrett said that Martin's time off helped him recover and that the Pro Bowl guard was able to work off to the side Wednesday, according to Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site. Martin sat out Sunday's blowout loss to the Colts due to a sprained MCL injury, and his status for Week 16 is murky at best.
