San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Jonathan Martin is expected to start at right tackle since starter Anthony Davis is battling a hamstring injury.
Offensive tackle Jonathan Martin made headlines last season due to a bullying scandal that was perpetrated by fellow Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito.
Martin left the team in the middle of the season, and he was eventually traded to the San Francisco 49ers. An opportunity may already be opening up for Martin as he looks to make a fresh start with his old Stanford coach, Jim Harbaugh.
Starting right tackle Anthony Davis is battling a hamstring injury that has kept him out for three consecutive practices, so Martin may be looking to start at right tackle against the Dallas Cowboys.
This will be a perfect opportunity for the ex-Miami Dolphin to get a much-needed confidence booster since the Cowboys have what is widely considered the worst defense in the NFL.
Martin was once considered a surefire first-round draft prospect after anchoring a dominant offensive line at Stanford, but the scandal clearly impeded his development.
At worst, he will provide quality depth to a 49ers offensive line that is regressing after being one of the most dominant units in the league.
