Buccaneers | Team gives little info on Doug Martin
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 19:51:11 -0700
Updating a previous report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers reported RB Doug Martin (head) suffered a "hard hit" in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 16, against the New England Patriots, and was ruled out for the rest of the game. Martin took a shot to the head from the knee of a defender, and was taken to the locker room for evaluation.
There will be an update on Martin, likely Saturday, so hang tight if you're a fantasy owner. Martin is a Top 5 fantasy pick in all formats, so this would be huge news if he is out for any significant amount of time. If you plan to draft Martin this weekend, make sure to nab Peyton Hillis or Brian Leonard in the later rounds just to cover your bases.
