Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin says he will return this season, according to the Tampa Tribune.
Martin, who was injured in the Buccaneers’ 31-23 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys at the Georgia Dome last Sunday, does not think he will have to miss the remaining 10 games, despite reportedly being diagnosed with a torn labrum in his shoulder. The team has yet to confirm or deny those reports.
Cutler’s time in Chicago has always been defined by reasonable excuses. His first three years here, he didn’t have any receivers. His first four years here, he played behind what may have been in the worst offensive line in the league. He never had continuity with the playbook, as the Bears shuffled through unworthy coordinators every year.
Without Martin, the already winless Buccaneers would be in an even tougher spot, considering he is the focal point of the offense. With rookie Mike Glennon running the show behind center, Martin Cheap Custom Hockey Jerseys provides a solid security blanket in both the run and passing games.
To date, Martin has rushed for 456 yards this season on 3.6 yards per carry to accompany 12 catches for 66 yards. The former Boise State star finished fifth in the league during his rookie season in rushing yardage, behind only Adrian Peterson, Alfred Morris, Jamaal Charles and Marshawn Lynch.
Robbie Gould, who hadn’t missed a field goal all season and is automatic from inside 50 yards, missed a 34-yard chip shot in the third quarter. Maybe the Bears are able to get into field goal range to win the game on their final drive if they had those three points.
