Cowboys right tackle Zack Martin has been ruled out of the team’s Thanksgiving matchup vs. Washington with a calf injury.
Martin went down on Dallas’ first drive of the game, grasping his left knee area, and was immediately helped off the field with trainers. Dallas ruled him out almost immediately after he appeared to aggravate an injury he suffered in weeks prior.
Cowboys RT Zack Martin has a calf injury. Apparent aggravation of what he sustained about 10 days ago. He is out for the game.

Martin’s injury was the second to Dallas’ O-line early in the game. Left tackle Cam Erving was questionable to return with a right knee injury.
Zack Martin injury is a calf injury (not a knee injury). Out remainder of game. LT Cam Erving (right knee) was examined in training room. He has returned to @dallascowboys bench with a brace on knee; not sure yet if he will be able to return to game #CowboysNation
