News: Martin rushed for 24 yards on six carries and caught one pass for four yards in Saturday's preseason contest against the Dolphins. Impact: More importantly, Martin, who is slated to serve as the Bucs' top back, is healthy, which is more than can be said of Charles Sims, who is out three months after ankle surgery, and Mike James, who hurt his shoulder Saturday. Given that Sims had been projected to make his mark as a pass-catcher out of the backfield, it's reasonable to expect Martin and backup Bobby Rainey to pick up some extra looks in the Bucs' passing attack out of the gate.(RotoWire, )

News: Martin was quiet in the Bucs' preseason opener against Jacksonville, gaining just six yards on three carries and two yards on one reception. Impact: Martin can hardly be blamed for the stat line, as the Bucs' first-team offense was horrible, and the line drew especially poor reviews. That line is a major concern heading into the season, with the guard spots shaping up as a likely weakness for the second straight year. It's an odd spot for the team to be in, as no franchise has invested more in the guard position over the last few years. Unfortunately for Martin, neither Davin Joseph nor Carl Nicks worked out, and both are no longer with the team. On a more positive note, the Bucs should be in decent shape at center and the tackle spots, so the line may round into form by Week 1.(RotoWire, )
