Week 13 review
Reporting on the impact of the coronavirus on the sports world
The Dallas Cowboys may have to finish the remainder of the 2020 season without one of their best offensive linemen. On Monday, ESPN’s Todd Archer reported that all-pro offensive guard Zack Martin had been moved to injured reserve with a calf injury. CBS Sports’ Patrik Walker reports that the move was actually expected. This means Martin will miss at least the next three games – but could potentially skip the rest of the season.
Aside from the extent of the calf injury itself, the Cowboys are currently at the bottom of NFC East with a 3-8 record, with the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday night. While Dallas could technically catch the New York Giants or the Washington Football team in the division, one has to wonder how likely that is. Should the Cowboys drop out of the postseason race, Dallas could make a decision to keep Martin on the sidelines for the rest of the year.
Martin injured his calf during the Cowboys’ harvest festival against Washington. The all-pro guard played tackle on the shorthanded offensive line and was backed into quarterback Andy Dalton by Ryan Kerrigan before going down. The Cowboys quickly ruled Martin out for the remainder of the matchup. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Martin would be out for several weeks, and indeed it will be.
The injury mistake has stuck to the offensive front of the cowboys this year. Martin joins the offensive tackle against Tyron Smith, the offensive tackle against Mitch Hyatt, the offensive tackle against La’el Collins and the center of Tyler Biadasz on the list of injured reserves.
