When the Dallas Cowboys take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend, they could have a huge boost to their offensive line.

According to reports, Cowboys right guard Zack Martin is back at practice after missing the first game of his career last week with an MCL injury.

Martin started and completed the first 77 games of his NFL career prior to missing last week's game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Cowboys lost that game 23-0.

More than his on-field durability though, Martin is among the best offensive guards in the NFL. He has made the Pro Bowl in each of his NFL seasons, and was just named to his fifth this past week.

Martin also earned First-Team All-Pro honors in his rookie year (2014) and in 2016.

Suffice it to say, the Cowboys would love to have a player of Martin's caliber on hand as they try to lock up the NFC East this weekend.

Stay tuned.
