The final injury report is in for the upcoming game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The big question for Dallas is the status of All-Pro guard Zack Martin. He’s battling an MCL injury and practiced the past couple of days on a limited basis. The Cowboys have officially listed him as questionable.
Here is what Martin had to say about his chances of playing:
“I’m feeling better and I’m hopeful for this week,’’ Martin said of Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay. “I’m going to keep listening to the trainers.”
“I’ve still got a couple of days to keep getting better, but I’m hopeful.’’
The status of nickel corner Anthony Brown is also questionable as back issues cropped up this week. Reserve Jourdan Lewis may be called upon for the game if Brown can’t go.
The official report:

Only DeSean Jackson is questionable for the Bucs.
Additionally, the Cowboys aren’t done looking at possibilities to churn the roster:
