The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a disappointing shutout loss to the Indianapolis Colts, but Jason Garrett's team can clinch the NFC East with a victory over Tampa Bay this weekend.

The Cowboys were without arguably their best player during the loss to the Colts, with All-Pro offensive lineman Zack Martin sidelined with a knee injury.

Will Dallas have the star offensive lineman back on Sunday afternoon?

Jerry Jones provided the latest on the status of the Cowboys' star offensive lineman during a radio appearance this morning.

The Cowboys will be monitoring Martin's status throughout the week.

Garrett had provided on update on Martin's status on Monday.

“He’s as tough as they come,” Garrett told reporters. “He’s going to give himself every chance to practice and play in this (next) ball game.”

The Cowboys' offense struggled to do anything of substance against the Colts on Sunday. Part of that can be chalked up to Martin's absence, though certainly not all of it.

Still, Dallas would love to have Martin back on the field on Sunday afternoon against the Bucs.

The Cowboys are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. on Sunday. The game will be on FOX.
