DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says that the team looks like they're as healthy as they've been all season. 

Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan that there's a chance linebacker Sean Lee and wide receiver Tavon Austin will play Sunday against Indianapolis. Both Lee (hamstring) and Austin (groin) have returned to practice this week in a limited capacity. 

Lee has missed the last five games due to a hamstring injury while Austin missed the last seven games with a groin injury. 

It's not all good news on the Cowboys injury front, however, as right guard Zack Martin is looking doubtful for Sunday after he aggravated his sprained MCL in last week's overtime win over Philadelphia. 

"There's a chance that we will see Sean. There's a chance that we will see Austin. I'm more dubious about Zack," Jones said on the GBAG Nation. "I'm not sure how much we'll use those two players (Austin and Lee), but they are guys that can really help this team."

Martin missed his third straight practice Friday but has not been ruled out for Sunday.

Defensive end Randy Gregory didn't practice Friday after missing Thursday's practice. Head coach Jason Garrett says Gregory is dealing with a family issue but should return in time to play Sunday.
