Doug Martin’s Status Still Up In The Air

Bucs_Doug_Martin_2013Though Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin said he doesn’t need to play Saturday against the Miami Dolphins in order to be ready for the regular season, he wouldn’t mind taking a few snaps.

“It’s up to the coaches,” he said.

Martin has just three carries in two preseason games and left last week’s 25-21 loss to the New England Patriots after taking a shot to the head during pass protection. Martin said his concussion tests were negative and he is 100 percent healthy and has practiced all week. However, Martin said he’d understand if the coaches hold him out as a precaution.
