Cowboys' Martin avoids significant injury, could be ready for opener


Dallas Cowboys guard Zack Martin received good news from his MRI on Sunday, discovering he avoided a significant injury to his left knee, a source told David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

Martin could reportedly be ready for the season opener against the Carolina Panthers.

The two-time first-team All-Pro apparently suffered a hyperextended left knee in Saturday's preseason contest against the Cincinnati Bengals. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was optimistic that Martin's injury wasn't serious.

Martin is one of the league's top interior offensive linemen. Dallas drafted him 16th overall in 2014.

The 27-year-old hasn't missed a start in his four NFL seasons.
