Doug Martin Out For Thursday Night Football

The Buccaneers and running back Doug Martin say that they don’t expect Martin’s shoulder injury to end his season, but, as expected, it is going to keep him from joining the rest of the team against the Panthers on Thursday night.

Martin has been ruled out for the game after missing practice every day of this abbreviated week. That will leave tailback duties to Mike James and Brian Leonard with the recently acquired Bobby Rainey also a possibility for playing time if the Bucs feel he’s up to speed quickly.
