The Cowboys also promoted CBs Rashard Robinson and Deante Burton to their active roster.

Martin is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a calf strain he suffered on Thanksgiving. 

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

Martin, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $8.967 million contract when the Cowboys picked up his fifth-year option for the 2018 season.

Martin was set to make $9.341 million for the 2018 season when he agreed to a six-year, $84 million extension that included $40 million guaranteed.

In 2020, Martin has appeared in 10 games for the Cowboys, making 10 starts for them at various positions.
