Buccaneers | Doug Martin feeling positive about return
Tue, 22 Oct 2013 18:46:57 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (shoulder) said Tuesday, Oct. 22, that his shoulder injury isn't necessarily of the season-ending variety. "No," Martin said. "Right now, I'm doing treatment on it with the trainers and taking it day by day and seeing how it feels. It's definitely gotten better. And my range of motion has increased day to day." The Buccaneers have not yet confirmed that Martin has tore his labrum and would be out for the season. Martin's left arm remains in a sling.
Martin is still not expected to play in Week 8, or for a very long time for that matter. It sounds like there is a sliver of hope he isn't done for the year, but Martin's owners and those needing help at RB should pound the waiver wire trying to secure Mike James.
