Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has a chance to return in Week 10. The 27-year-old hasn’t played since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 2. “We’re hopeful that after these three days off that maybe he has a shot at Chicago,” HC Dirk Koetter said. “But hamstrings seem to linger a little bit. We’ll have to wait and see.” The Bucs certainly need help at RB with Charles Sims and Antone Smith out for the year. Jacquizz Rodgers is dealing with a foot injury, too. For now, Peyton Barber and Mike James represent the only healthy RBs in Tampa Bay.
The Raiders have released RB Doug Martin. If you needed confirmation that rookie Josh Jacobs will dominate early-down work in Oakland's backfield this season, here it is. The only question left is how much pass-catching work Jacobs will cede to RB Jalen Richard.
The Raiders have re-signed RB Doug Martin. The move is clearly a direct reaction to Isaiah Crowell's Achilles tear. Martin averaged a respectable 4.2 yards per carry on 172 totes for Oakland last year but ranked just 30th out of 47 RBs with 100+ carries in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating. Martin is veteran insurance in case rookie Josh Jacobs stumbles.
Raiders RB Doug Martin (knee) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. Newly signed RB C.J. Anderson is a healthy scratch. Martin should continue to serve as Oakland’s lead back but is just a RB3 vs. Pittsburgh’s tough run defense.
The Raiders expect RB Doug Martin (knee) to play through his questionable tag in today's game against the Steelers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Martin's not an attractive play, but he has at least averaged 57.7 rushing yards and 74.5 total yards over the past 6 weeks since taking over the job.
