Buccaneers RB Doug Martin left Week 2 with a hamstring injury and did not return. Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said Martin will have an MRI on Tuesday.
“Well, I’m not a doctor, but when you see it on the film, he did it on a cut," Koetter said Monday. "It was a pitch play to our right and when Doug planted, he said that’s when he did it. You can’t even hardly tell on tape. So I’m just not sure about that, we’ll be getting a more updated report [Tuesday].”
This would be a big blow to the running game. The story said the makeup of the offense changed with backups Charles Sims and newly signed Jacquizz Rodgers on the field. Martin typically touches the ball 20 times a game. Sims isn't the inside runner that Martin is, although he's gotten more powerful with a lowered pad level, something he improved as a pro.
