Sources: Cowboys guard Zack Martin will skip the Pro Bowl

Turns out Martin had elbow surgery.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Dallas Cowboys Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Zack Martin was voted into the 2018 Pro Bowl, but it looks like he will not be attending. Todd Archer reports:

Dallas Cowboys right guard Zack Martin is recovering from right elbow surgery that will keep him out of the upcoming Pro Bowl but not from the start of the offseason program, according to multiple sources.

The surgery was a considered a cleanup and nothing too serious. Martin did not miss a game in 2017 and has not missed a game in his career.

The good news is that this is nothing serious and that Martin will be able to start preparing for the 2018 season with the rest of the team. The Cowboys and Martin will hopefully reach agreement on a long-term deal for the All-Pro guard. He is set to play under the fifth-year option of his original rookie deal which would amount to $9.3 million unless both sides come to an agreement.

Tyron Smith will also likely miss the Pro Bowl as he recovers from multiple injuries and ended the season on injured reserve. Travis Frederick and DeMarcus Lawrence will represent Dallas in the game.
