IRVING, Texas - Zack Martins best test so far of durability as a pro came with a right ankle injury serious enough to keep him out of practice for a week with the Cowboys. Vapormax In Offerta .The rookie right guards response: Im playing.It certainly fits with everything I know about him, Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. Hes a little bit of a throwback. He reminds you of linemen who played 25 years ago. He just has this way about him.Martin is possibly the last first-round piece of a rebuilt offensive line for the Cowboys, a versatile blocker with more starts at Notre Dame than anyone in school history. And now hes the first rookie lineman named to the Pro Bowl in Dallas franchise history.Its kind of an exclamation point on the season that hes had, said centre Travis Frederick, a first-round pick last year and another first-time Pro Bowl player. We talked about it several times throughout the season, how hes never really come in and played like a rookie. Hes always played like a veteran.Tyron Smith, a two-time Pro Bowl pick at left tackle, was Dallas top choice from 2011.Martins resolve was tested just weeks after the Cowboys picked him at No. 16. He was already the guy Dallas took instead of Johnny Manziel, who was unexpectedly still on the board. And then he got caught up in a play that ended standout linebacker Sean Lees season in the first full squad workout of the off-season.Lee was about to engage with Martin in a noncontact drill when his left knee gave way, tearing the anterior cruciate ligament. There was video for all to see, and it was easy to forget that Lees knee buckled before Martin rolled over the top of him.Martin stood tall when he was questioned about the play by reporters.It sucks to be kind of grouped into that play and him getting hurt, Martin said at the time. I think he would say it first over anyone. Youve got to move forward.And that was the message from many of the veterans who pulled Martin aside, including Lee and tight end Jason Witten.Harry Hiestand, Martins line coach at Notre Dame, knew from the outset that his old pupil wouldnt have trouble getting over the Lee incident, promising that hes not reliving it.Martin has spent the last five months proving it as a key component of soon-to-be NFL rushing champion DeMarco Murrays pursuit of all-time league leader Emmitt Smiths franchise record from 19 years ago. He has 1,745 yards, needing 29 yards to beat Smiths total of 1,773.The 24-year-old Martin sprained his right ankle in a win at Philadelphia that gave the Cowboys the NFC East lead, and played without practicing in a division-clinching win over Indianapolis last week.He came out only after the 42-7 victory was in hand, and now hes practicing again with Dallas (11-4) visiting Washington (4-11) in the regular-season finale Sunday.The trainers did a great job all week getting the swelling and all of that stuff out of there, Martin said. So it was really just getting comfortable with it and running around.Hiestands lasting memory of Martin is the way he would come to meetings every day with a vibe that said, Hey, coach, dont worry about this. We got this stuff.These days its more like Im going to keep my mouth shut and work. Hes sure thats the best way to make it as a lineman in the NFL.And hes well on his way to making it.I think you can tell hes a natural leader, Witten said. Obviously, hes very gifted, very composed for a young player being thrown in the trenches day one. Hes got a bright future.And thats what Witten thought long before Martin made a little Pro Bowl history for the tradition-rich Cowboys.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Vapormax 97 Uomo . -- Steven Stamkos scored his first goal since returning from a major injury, Ryan Callahan had his first goal with Tampa Bay, and the Lightning beat the Florida Panthers 5-4 on Thursday night. Vapormax Flyknit 2 Scontate . Hall joined Bengals teammates for a voluntary workout on Monday. Hes got his mobility back and is on schedule to be ready for the season. CINCINNATI - Bengals cornerback Leon Hall is happy with his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon and expects to be ready for the start of training camp in July. http://www.scarpevapormaxscontate.it/ . UCI President Brian Cookson said Wednesday the commission will investigate allegations "that the UCI has been involved in wrongdoing in the past -- allegations which have done so much to hurt the credibility of the UCI and our sport.The legend of Jose Abreu continues to grow, but the enormous early achievements for the rookie have yet to translate into an overall level of success for his Chicago White Sox. Abreu his and teammates shoot for back-to-back wins for just the second time since June 11 on Saturday as they battle the Toronto Blue Jays in the third of a four-game set. Trying to slow down Abreu for the Jays is rookie hurler Marcus Stroman, a product of Duke. The right-hander, making his first-ever appearance against Chicago, managed to break a minor two-game slide on Monday as he allowed just a single run on three hits, striking out seven, over eight innings against the New York Yankees at home. Stroman has appeared in four day games this season already, but the results have been somewhat hard to swallow, even though he has a record of 1-1 in such games. He is also carrying a lofty 5.65 ERA in those 14 1/3 innings. Chicago, which is alone in last place in the AL Central, has the second- highest team ERA in the league at 4.40 and is the only club yet to register a shutout on the campaign. Conversely, Toronto is second in the AL with 10 shutouts, although the Jays are 11th in overall ERA with a 4.09 mark. Chicagos first baseman posted two more home runs on Friday as the Sox slipped by Toronto in a 5-4 decision. The victory snapped a brief two-game slide for a Chicago club that is 10 games below .500 (16-26) on the road. Abreu, though, now has four multi-homer games through his first 67 contests, becoming the first player since Atlantas Bob Horner in 1978 to achieve such a feat. Abreu is also tied with Torontos Edwin Encarnacion and Nelson Cruz of Baltimore for the Major League lead in home runs with 25. "Im glad hes on my team," said White Sox starter John Danks, who picked up his seventh win of the campaign. "t;Im glad I dont have to face him. Vapormax Flyknit 3 Nere. " Danks made it through six innings, allowing two runs on five hits, two of those being home runs. A host of relievers handed the game to Jake Petricka who picked up his second save of the season by recording just a pair of outs in the ninth. Former Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey was saddled with the loss as he was hammered for four home runs, five runs overall on just five hits. The knuckleballer did strike out nine and walk only one through six innings, but it just wasnt enough. "I felt very good with it, tonight was a very bizarre outing," Dickey said. "I dont know how else to explain it, to give up five hits and four of them being home runs. To walk one guy and strikeout nine and leave the game after six innings giving up five runs, thats a bizarre outing." Encarnacion, who is second in the league in RBI with 65, delivered on his 25th home run, a solo effort, while Colby Rasmus and Dioner Navarro also went deep for a Toronto team which is still holding down first place in the AL East, 1 1/2 games ahead of Baltimore entering play today. After missing almost the entire month of March, Chris Sale is now aiming to come up with his seventh win in eight decisions as he heads to the mound for the White Sox this afternoon. The left-hander pitched on Monday against Baltimore on the road but failed to earn a decision as Chicago was handed a 6-4 loss. Sale made it through just six innings for the second game in a row, permitting a mere two runs as he scattered a season-high 11 hits and struck out three. Now in his fifth season in the majors, Sale has pitched against Toronto four times previously but is still awaiting his first favorable outcome (0-2), although he has been credited with a save in one of those contests.
