Doug Martin: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Martin didn't practice Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. However, the walking boot worn by Martin on Wednesday wasn't evident.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Despite ditching the boot, Martin's status won't be encouraging until he takes part in drills in some capacity. With only one opportunity to do so before the weekend, Friday's injury report will forecast his Week 9 availability, one way or the other. However, his performance on the year has left owners wanting more, and the potential activation of Charles Sims (ankle) in advance of Sunday's outing could throw a wrench in the backfield pecking order.
Martin (ankle) didn't take part in Wednesday's practice, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

During the third quarter of Sunday's eventual loss to the Vikings, Martin was removed due to an injured left ankle, which was encased in a walking boot Wednesday. His status will likely remain in question throughout the week, but expect clarification on his availability for Sunday's game in Cleveland by the release of Friday's injury report. Given his ineffectiveness this season -- namely, 2.8 YPC -- and the potential activation of rookie RB Charles Sims (ankle), Martin may soon be relegated to also-ran in terms of fantasy and reality. Also, Bobby Rainey would likely see a heavier workload if Martin is unable to play Sunday.
Martin did not return to Sunday's game against the Vikings, after leaving in the third quarter with an ankle injury. He finished with 10 carries for 27 yards.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The Buccaneers have not yet provided any update on on Martin's status, but this could be the beginning of the end of his status as the Buccaneers' lead back, given the recent trade rumors and the imminent return of promising rookie Charlie Sims. The lead-up to Tuesday's trade deadline will be an interesting one in Tampa. Bobby Rainey took over after Martin was injured, finishing with 25 yards on eight carries.

2014

2013

The 31st pick in the 2012 draft, Martin earned the starting job out of camp last year and quickly became the Bucs' workhorse in a standout rookie season. He ranked fourth in the league with 319 rushes, tied for second among feature backs with 70 targets and took 83.3 percent of his team's handoffs in the red zone, second only to Arian Foster. All of which led to nearly 2,000 yards from scrimmage (2nd) and 12 total touchdowns (4th). At 5-9, 223, Martin has a low center of gravity and boasts a blend of power and exceptional balance that helped him total 800 yards after contact last season, more than any back other than Adrian Peterson. He also has big-play ability as touchdowns of 36, 40, 45, 64, 67 and 70 yards attest. Despite 16 rushes inside the five-yard line last year (3rd), Martin converted only five, but this season he should benefit from the return of Pro Bowl guards Davin Joseph and Carl Nicks – arguably the game's top run blocker – who were lost to injury in 2012.

2012

The Buccaneers used their first-round pick to draft Martin, who totaled 1,554 yards with 18 touchdowns during his final season at Boise State. At 5-9, 219, he offers big-play ability but is also considered a complete back, capable as a receiver and in pass protection. LeGarrette Blount struggles badly in those latter two areas, so expect the rookie to start immediately, especially since the new regime traded up to select Martin and has zero ties to Blount. Tampa Bay has a bad offensive line and scored the sixth-fewest points per game last season, so other than the clear path to playing time, it’s hardly an ideal situation. Still, Josh Freeman is capable of bouncing back, the team added Vincent Jackson through free agency, and new coach Greg Schiano’s offense was extremely run-heavy at Rutgers. Martin should make a major impact right away.
