Tampa Bay Buccaneers two-time Pro Bowl running back Doug Martin suffered a concussion against the Atlanta Falcons and sat out the remainder of the Buccaneers’ 20-34 loss.
Martin had three carries on the Bucs’ opening drive before taking a hit and briefly leaving the game. He returned, rushing for 33 yards on seven carries, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. He was then replaced by Jacquizz Rodgers on the Bucs’ final drive of the first half.
The Bucs have struggled to run the ball. They had 798 rushing yards heading into Sunday’s game — 30th in the league.
Bucs center Ali Marpet also left Sunday’s game with a knee injury.
Bucs defensive tackle Clinton McDonald (back) and defensive back/special-teams captain Josh Robinson (hamstring) were ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin suffered a concussion during Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced.
The injury is another knock for Martin, who missed the first three games of the season stemming from last year’s failed drug test.
Since the ban was lifted, Martin has rushed 112 times for 343 yards and two touchdowns as Tampa Bay’s bell cow. He’s also managed seven receptions for 60 yards.

But now that Martin is banged up again a season after appearing in just eight games, the Bucs will have to pivot back to their contingency plan.
That means Jacquizz Rodgers should eat up early-down work, with Charles Sims operating as the third-down pass-catching specialist.
Doug Martin was expected to give the Tampa Ba Buccaneers’ offense a jolt when he came off his three-game suspension to start the season. Instead, Martin has been one of the biggest disappointments in football, contributing to a Bucs offense that went off the rails.
Through seven games, Martin has just 343 yards and two touchdowns on 112 carries, averaging a meager 3.1 yards per carry. He has yet to clear the 100-yard mark and is prone to major duds, such as last week’s performance against the Miami Dolphins (19 carries, 38 yards).
Fantasy impact: The Bucs are still feeding Martin the rock because they really don’t have any better options, so sheer volume alone could keep him on the RB2 radar. However, he’s simply not doing anything with those carries and looks almost out of gas at age 28. The Atlanta Falcons are not an appealing matchup in Week 12, giving up the 10th-fewest fantasy points to running backs. Martin has been bench fodder most of the year and we don’t see that changing here.
