Cowboys RG Zack Martin tests positive for COVID-19

Dallas Cowboys All-Pro right guard Zack Martin tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Thursday night’s season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Martin, 30, was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Sunday.

Head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Martin is “frustrated.”

“This is the world we live in right now,” McCarthy said.

Martin has started 104 of a possible 112 games since Dallas drafted him in the first round (16th overall) in 2014. He made six straight Pro Bowls and earned four first-team All-Pro selections from 2014-19 before missing six games last season with a calf injury.

Reserve guard Brandon Knight is in the COVID-19 protocols after being identified as a close contact.

Two Cowboys offensive linemen received better news. Multiple outlets reported that right tackle La’el Collins was cleared to return to practice Sunday after sitting out last week with a neck stinger, and left guard Connor Williams was activated from the COVID-19 list.
