Bucs RB Doug Martin (ribs) won't play second preseason game
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin will sit out Saturday's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to bruised ribs, a team source told ESPN.
Martin is sitting out for "precautionary reasons," the source said, and the injury is not expected to affect him beyond this week.
The injury absence was first reported by The Tampa Bay Times and confirmed by ESPN.
Martin was a full participant in joint practices in Jacksonville, including Wednesday's padded practice. It is unclear when he suffered the injury, the story said.
