Cowboys' Zack Martin: Set for multi-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that Martin (calf) will miss multiple weeks, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Martin could go to injured reserve with a potential 3-to-4 week recovery in the works, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. In fact, Martin may not return this season, as he won't return to the field until he's 100 percent, and the Cowboys may be out of the playoff race at that time. Moving forward, Terence Steele is the next man up at right tackle for the Cowboys.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (calf) was ruled out during the first half of Thursday's game against Washington, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Martin was joined by Cameron Erving (knee) on the sideline Thursday, as both starting tackles suffered injuries on Dallas' opening offensive drive of the contest.

No indication has been made yet as to whether Martin's injury will keep him out for Week 13 and beyond, but the fact that he was promptly ruled out upon his departure is not encouraging.
