Doug Martin’s teammates are eagerly anticipating Sunday’s opener against the Jets when the Little Engine That Could of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers begins his quest to top a glorious rookie season.
The Bucs kept Martin under protective wraps in August limiting him to only three carries in the first two exhibition games. The Pro Bowl back didn’t even get on the field in the final two preseason matchups including a Week 3 game at Miami that featured most of Tampa Bay’s starters receiving extended playing time.
Martin who ran for 1454 yards as a first-round draft pick out of Boise State took a knee to the helmet in the second preseason game at New England that momentarily dazed him but he said he was healthy enough to play against the Dolphins.
“I wasn’t concerned about a concussion at all” Martin said. “There’s weren’t any blackout spots.”
Now Martin can’t wait to come off the shelf and provide enviable balance for the NFL’s No. 9 offense.
“Doug’s a tremendous player” said Bucs

Cornerback Darrelle Revis should be healthy enough to make an impact for a revamped secondary,...
