The Giants placed Martin (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday.
Martin was already expected to have an extended absence, and his placement on injured reserve guarantees he won't return until Week 10 at the earliest. The nature of his injury is still unclear. Tuzar Skipper and Oshane Ximines figure to see an uptick in their snap counts while Martin recovers.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Martin (knee) will miss multiple weeks, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.
Martin left the season opener after playing just 10 snaps, and the team clearly isn't optimistic about Martin's health. He won't play in Sunday's game versus the Bills, and Markus Golden is expected to fill in as the starting outside linebacker.
Martin (knee) is out for the remainder of Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.
Martin made two tackles (one solo) before exiting the game. A mix of Markus Golden and Oshane Ximines will replace Martin at outside linebacker for the time being. Martin will look to make a quick recovery to be ready for Week 2's contest versus the Bills.
