Martin, who tore the labrum in his left shoulder in Week 7 (against the Falcons) last season, reports no residual effects from the injury, the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I was thinking to myself, the last time I was in pads, it was Atlanta," he noted as training camp opened. "My shoulder is still intact; no pain. I'm good."

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

Martin could see fewer touches this season, as Bucs' offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford plans to use several running backs on a weekly basis, reports. "I think you have to alternate," Tedford said. "...I don't believe that one back can carry the load. It's just too physical. I think you probably need to have two to three guys to bring different things to the table."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This news bodes well for Martin's health, but the same can't be said for his fantasy value. During his Pro Bowl rookie season in 2012, Martin logged 368 touches as the featured back. Now, coming off a shoulder injury that limited him to seven games, Martin will likely surrender touches to backups Mike James, Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims. Of course, Martin is still, by far, the biggest name of the bunch and will likely carry the biggest workload, but it may be a stretch to expect him to return to the high volume of touches he received two years ago.

Martin (shoulder) indicated Monday that he has been cleared for football activities, reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Martin, who is bouncing back from a torn labrum that landed him on IR last season, expects to be ready for the Bucs' offseason workouts on Apr. 22. Now that he's returning to health, he's in line to reclaim his status as the team's lead back as the 2014 season approaches.
Martin is nearing a full recovery from the torn labrum he suffered last October, the National Football Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Martin was placed on season-ending injured reserve in November and underwent surgery to repair his ailing shoulder shortly after. In all, Martin's second season was limited to just six games, leaving the running back with only 456 rushing yards and one touchdown on the campaign. At the moment, Martin anticipates his shoulder to be fully cleared by doctors within the next week, so he should be ready for Tampa Bay's offseason workouts in early April.
Martin (shoulder) expects to be ready for the start of offseason workouts on April 7, the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Martin missed the final 10 games of the 2013 season due to a torn labrum, and he finished the year with 456 rushing yards and a touchdown on 127 carries in six games. He should be back at full health well before training camp, and it sounds like he won't even miss any offseason activities. Martin figures to lead the Bucs' backfield in 2014, but new offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford already said that he wants to get other running backs involved. While a true committee approach is probably out of the question, Martin may have some competition for touches, possibly in the form of 2013 holdovers Mike James and Bobby Rainey.
Jeff Tedford, Martin's (shoulder) new offensive coordinator, hints that he plans to utilize more of a committee approach at running back than previous head coach Greg Schiano employed, the Buccaneers' official site reports. "I think for one guy to carry the load the whole time, especially as physical as this level is, [is difficult]," Tedford noted. "[You need] to have two and probably three backs that are quality backs that can provide different things for you, as far as third-down backs are concerned, catching the ball out of the backfield, pass protection, all the things to be able to create some matchups."

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.


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.
