Martin (toe) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Martin was not expected to suit up this season, so moving him onto injured reserve was the logical step for the Cowboys. Damien Mama and Dustin Stanton both have a chance at filling Martin's role as a backup guard, given that Dallas doesn't go acquire someone during training camp.
Martin (toe) is not expected to play this season, but is seeking a second opinion on his injured left toe before undergoing surgery, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Martin tore ligaments in his big toe during the Cowboys first preseason contest against the 49ers. The backup guard inked a one-year deal with the Cowboys this offseason. Damien Mama and Dustin Stanton are both candidates to fill Martin's spot as a depth option on Dallas' offensive line.
Martin suffered a right big toe injury in Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers and may need surgery.
Martin is currently in a walking boot, and while surgery is not a foregone conclusion, things look to be headed in that direction. Martin was signed to provide depth at guard on the NFL's top offensive line.
Martin sat out Wednesday's practice with an undisclosed injury.
Martin didn't play at all in 2017, but he'd flashed first-team potential earlier in his career. He's been operating as a backup while with Dallas. While his injury is unclear, there has been no indication that it's serious or that it will hinder him for long. Look for Kadeem Edwards or Joe Looney to get some extra reps in any upcoming practices that Martin misses.
Martin is nearing a deal with the Cowboys, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Martin is the likely replacement for Joe Looney, who recently became a free agent. The 24-year-old guard will provide needed depth along the Cowboys' offensive line, and with Jonathan Cooper departing the team this offseason, Martin should have a chance to contend for the starting left guard position in 2018.
