Buccaneers RB Doug Martin Says He's Not Hitting Rookie Wall
Buccaneers RB Doug Martin said he has not run into a rookie wall despite being slowed down the last two weeks.
Martin has carried 39 times for only 106 yards in the past two games after reaching 1,000 yards for the season in the first 10 games. He is preparing to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
“That stuff about the rookie wall, I don't feel that at all," Martin said, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. "My body feels great and my mind is clear.''
Martin has had 268 touches – 236 rushes and 32 receptions – so he is close to his high during a single season at Boise State of 291. Most importantly for him, Bucs offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan doesn’t see Martin slowing down.
“I see Doug continuing to get stronger," Sullivan said, according to Cummings. "I don't see him hitting a wall. I think he's right on track and we're going to continue to move forward and get him in positions to make plays."
