Dallas Cowboys lose Pro Bowl RG Zack Martin to knee injury

Cowboys offensive lineman Zack Martin exited Saturday night's Cowboys-Bengals preseason game with a knee injury, the team announced.

The harsh reality of how quickly a season can change on an injury is omnipresent during the National Football League preseason, and you can forgive Cowboys fans for panicking after seeing star offensive lineman and All-Pro guard Zack Martin limp off from the Cowboys' Week 2 preseason game. The Cowboys were running a sweep play to the right, and Martin was cut low while pulling on a block by Bengals defender Dre Kirkpatrick.

Joe Jonas also welcomed Chopra to the family, posting the same image with the caption: " I couldn't be happier for my brother ". Nick perhaps provided us with the sweetest moment from the party where fiance Priyanka and he can be seen kissing his parents.

Jerry Jones provided an encouraging update on Martin after the game: "I just want to say we've got more to gain from [MRI on Sunday]", Jones told reporters, via Pro Football Talk's Charean Williams, "but from what we've seen, I'll sleep good tonight on Martin". The two-time All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowl selection signed a six-year extension worth $84 million with $40 million guaranteed this offseason when the Cowboys opted to extend his rookie contract.

Martin, 27, was selected by Dallas with the No. 16 pick of the 2014 draft.
