Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee, quadricep, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 4. Martin injured his knee in Wednesday’s practice, but returned as expected on Friday. We expect him to play. If he’s out, Charles Sims would be a volume play versus the Panthers.

Week 4 vs. Carolina
Doug Martin hurt his knee during practice Wednesday and sat out Thursday, so his health is something to monitor leading up to Sunday. So far this season, Martin has been average when it comes to running the ball. His 3.8 yards per carry average isn't impressing anyone.
Martin gets a difficult matchup this week a Panthers defense that hasn't allowed more than 70 collective rushing yards to running backs in any game this season. Expect Martin to put up average numbers again, making him a flex play in Week 4.
