Cowboys OG Martin expected to play Week 1

All-Pro offensive guard Zack Martin was diagnosed with a bone bruise and hyperextended knee, but the Dallas Cowboys expect him to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season on Sept. 9.

Martin remained on the turf for several minutes after a collision in the second quarter with Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick on Saturday. Further evaluation on his left knee revealed no major damage.

Martin, 27, signed an $84 million contract extension in June.

Since being drafted in the first round out of Notre Dame, Martin has started all 67 games in his four-year career with the Cowboys.
