Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said he is not sure when Doug Martin (hamstring) will return.

Martin suffered a setback in his rehab over the weekend and is out indefinitely. It is a major blow to fantasy owners considering the matchup with the 49ers this week, but there are plenty more juicy opportunities remaining on the schedule if Martin can get back healthy. He could be out another game or two, but Martin can still be a fantasy factor this season.
Oct 22 - 10:18 AM

Coach Dirk Koetter revealed Doug Martin (hamstring) suffered a setback over the weekend and will not play Week 7 against the 49ers.

He's back to being week to week. With Martin out, Jacquizz Rodgers will again serve as the Bucs' every-down back after handling a whopping 35 touches Week 5 against the Panthers. The 49ers are 28th in run-defense DVOA and recently lost stud ILB Navorro Bowman to a torn Achilles'. Over their last three games, the 49ers have allowed 191.7 rushing yards per game to running backs, including SEVEN touchdowns. Rodgers is a plug-and-play RB2 in a dream spot.
Oct 19 - 3:31 PM

Doug Martin (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

Martin is tentatively expected back this week against the 49ers, but he's going to need to practice Thursday and Friday to feel comfortable about it. Coach Dirk Koetter said Martin will be back as the lead dog and workhorse whenever he returns. Jacquizz Rodgers will play a bit role on some pass downs.
Oct 19 - 1:41 PM

Doug Martin (hamstring) did not practice Monday.

Martin is expected to return this week, but it is slightly concerning he is being held out coming off the bye. Still, there will not be reason for serious worry unless he sits out Wednesday's session as well. Martin will be a locked-in RB1 if he suits up against the 49ers.
Oct 17 - 10:42 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Doug Martin (hamstring) will miss Monday's game against the Panthers.

Martin was listed as doubtful. The absence will be his third straight. He's expected to return after Tampa's Week 6 bye.
Oct 10 - 2:33 PM

Doug Martin (hamstring) did not practice Saturday.

It is not a surprise. Martin should be back after the team's Week 6 bye.
Oct 8 - 11:14 AM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Doug Martin (hamstring) "needs another week."

Martin has yet to practice and was never expected to play. He's on track to return after Tampa's Week 6 bye. With Charles Sims (knee) also sidelined, the Bucs could be down to Jacquizz Rodgers on Monday night.
Oct 7 - 5:01 PM

Doug Martin (hamstring) has yet to resume practicing.

Martin looks set to miss his third straight game Monday. With the Bucs on bye for Week 6, Martin should probably be ready to roll for Week 7.
Oct 6 - 1:46 PM

Doug Martin (hamstring) is not at practice Tuesday.

Martin is expected to be out through next week's bye, and missing Tuesday's session certainly does not change that expectation. Charles Sims also sat out Tuesday. If he is injured, the Bucs would be in a very tough spot in the backfield.
Oct 4 - 11:03 AM

The Tampa Bay Times' Greg Auman believes Doug Martin (hamstring) is likely to sit out through the team's Week 6 bye.

Auman admits there is "some window" for a return this week, but it is more likely he sits out through the bye week. The entire offense was demolished by the Broncos on Sunday, but Charles Sims has played well overall in Martin's absence. It looks like he will get one more start.
Oct 3 - 11:50 AM

Bucs declared RB Doug Martin, QB Ryan Griffin, TE Luke Stocker, DE Robert Ayers, WR Cecil Shorts, OT Leonard Wester and OG Caleb Benenoch inactive for Week 4 against the Broncos.

Martin remains week to week. He doesn't seem particularly likely to return in Week 5. Charles Sims will continue to be a near every-down player in his absence.
Oct 2 - 2:34 PM

Doug Martin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 4.

Charles Sims put up top-12 fantasy running back numbers in Martin's absence in last week's theoretically difficult matchup with the Rams. Sims is an every-week fantasy RB2. Martin is expected to miss at least another game.
Sep 30 - 2:36 PM

Doug Martin (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

Martin is fully expected to miss another 1-2 weeks. Charles Sims will continue to carry the bulk of the load and be backed up by Jacquizz Rodgers.
Sep 28 - 1:47 PM

Bucs declared RB Doug Martin, WR Cecil Shorts, DE Robert Ayers, OG Caleb Benenoch, QB Ryan Griffin, TE Luke Stocker and OT Leonard Wester inactive for Week 3 vs. the Rams.

Martin is week to week. Charles Sims is getting the start and will be a bell-cow in a game where the flow should favor the Bucs. 20 touches is possible, putting Sims on the RB1 borderline.
