DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) -- Following another victory, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is looking to have most of his starters back from injury when they travel to face the Indianapolis Colts this weekend.

On his weekly show Tuesday with The Fan's "Shan & RJ," Jones was asked about having three key members of his team nearing their returns: linebacker Sean Lee, wide receiver Tavon Austin and defensive lineman David Irving. 

"All have some probability of playing," Jones said. "I'd like to think out of one of those three, we could get someone up."

Lee has been out for several weeks to due hamstring issues, but he's been easily replaced by rookie LB Leighton Vander Esch. 

Austin has missed the past seven games due to a groin injury. and Irving has missed the past six with a high ankle sprain, along with assorted "off the field" issues.

Another concerning injury to with offensive guard Zack Martin, who had to be taken off the field due to a knee issue on Sunday.

"That's a day-to-day," Jones said. "This is the same type of situation he had earlier in the season. We'll just have to see how he's doing at the end of the week."

The Cowboys (8-5) have won five games in a row to take a commanding two-game lead in the NFC East with three weeks remaining in the regular season.
