Found October 22, 2013 on Fox Sports Florida:
TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin says he's approaching his left shoulder injury day-to-day, and to his knowledge, the condition won't end his season. Speaking on his radio show with WDAE 620 AM on Tuesday night, the Pro Bowl running back said pain has decreased and motion has been better since sustaining the injury Sunday in a loss to the Atlanta Falcons at the Georgia Dome. He was seen wearing a sling, though he said after the game he didn't think he had separated his shoulder. Monday, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said Martin, 24, was out indefinitely, and it would be "a stretch" to see the Boise State product play Thursday when the Bucs host the Carolina Panthers at Raymond James Stadium. Also Monday, FOX Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo reported Martin had sustained a torn labrum, possibly a season-ending setback. "It's day-by-day. We'll take it week-by-week," Martin said on WDAE 620 AM. "Throughout this time, I've definitely got to get in the film room and brush up on anything I need to do to get better. "I first I was mad, and I was upset that it happened. It didn't really hit me until we were taking off (from Atlanta). You can't be mad for too long. ... You can't turn back time. I just have to take it day-by-day and week-by-week and wait until it gets better." Martin has 456 yards on 127 carries with one touchdown this season. He rushed for 1,454 yards on 319 carries with 11 touchdowns as a rookie last year. You can follow Andrew Astleford on Twitter @aastleford or email him at aastleford@gmail.com.
