Cowboys OL Zack Martin back at practice after injury scare in second preseason game

New, comments

He’s back! Deep breaths.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

It was less than two weeks ago that Zack Martin was down on the field and looked to be in serious pain against the Cincinnati Bengals. At the time, many thought Martin has just torn his ACL, or done some serious damage to his knee/ankle. The scare sent Cowboys Nation into a panic combined with learning that Travis Frederick could miss significant time due to being diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome.

Just nine days after finding out that his injury was a hyperextended knee, not an ACL, Martin was back at Tuesday’s practice. It has been reported that Martin went through almost all of practice on Tuesday, and did so without showing any signs of the knee bothering him.

Martin signed a huge contract extension before the start of the offseason and is going play a huge role in the Cowboys success in 2018. It’s great to see that he’s already back in practice just a few days after a serious injury scare.
