    Cowboys G/T Zack Martin Could Return for Pivotal Week 17 Finale

    The are preparing for a major showdown with the as both teams could still win the East. The Cowboys could be getting a major boost toward that goal if All-Pro Offensive Lineman Zack Martin is able to return from and play this Sunday.

    Martin has missed Dallas' last four games with a calf injury. He also left early in their Week 6 loss to Arizona and was out for the following game against Washington with a concussion. While the team fell apart without him earlier in the year, the Cowboys are currently riding a three-game win streak.

    But even if the makeshift has stabilized in recent weeks, getting Zack back out there would be a major upgrade whether Dallas uses him at guard or .

    Whatever the case, whether it's at guard over or replacing Steele at tackle, Zack Martin would be an upgrade for Dallas and 31 other teams if he can play this week. As the Cowboys fight to stay alive in the race, having perhaps their best overall player return would be a big win going into Sunday.

    That would be huge to get Zack Martin back. We need him at RT more than RG at the moment. I guess we’ll see come Sunday at 1pm.
