He missed four games in 2017 for violating the performance-enhancing drug policy. He will be able to take part in training camp and preseason games. Once the regular season starts, he will be able to continue to work out at The Star but not take part in meetings and practice.

Zack Martin said his contract extension with the Cowboys is not yet complete, but he is hopeful it will be done soon. There are some contract language that still needs to be worked out. Martin skipped the OTAs and took part in individual drills on Tuesday as the Cowboys opened minicamp but no 11-on-11 snaps. “I communicated with Coach Garrett and all the other coaches right before I didn't come in what I was going to do and why. We were all on the same page,” Martin said. “So I do think I handled it the right way.”

Sean Lee took part in individual drills for this first time this offseason as he ramps up his work with the Cowboys opening minicamp. It's doubtful he takes any 11 on 11 snaps over the next two days with the idea of getting him completely ready for training camp in July.
