Andrew Billings making sure the Cowboys didn't pound the ball on the Bengals

Now at the halfway point of the 2018 National Football League preseason schedule, the Dallas Cowboys have played in two games where they have been some good, some bad and even worse, a couple injures that they really didn't need to see occur.

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. Martin limped off the field and spent a good portion of time in the medical tent before heading to the locker room.

Martin Truex Jr's future could be in doubt
Busch once won three consecutive times on the Tennessee track and was considered the best in the business on the concrete oval. The victory was the 13th for Stewart-Haas Racing since it joined Ford last season, and the 100th Cup victory for the Fusion.

Even with the injuries suffered on Saturday night, seeing the severity of those injuries is something to keep a look out for. The Cowboys don't seem concerned, but you just have to be considering what's at stake this year. But after the retirement of Jason Witten and release of Dez Bryant signaled a sea change to the passing attack, the Cowboys intend on riding their offensive line and bellcow Ezekiel Elliott more than ever. That plan largely depends on a healthy Martin and Frederick anchoring the offense up front.
