According to Rapoport, Martin could return for the team’s Week 10 match up against the Dolphins. However, should Martin suffer a setback to his injured shoulder, Tampa Bay would likely shut him down for the remainder of the season.
Martin is expected to spend the next 18 days strengthening his shoulder and intends to wear a harness once he’s ready to return to game-action.
This is obviously great news considering that many expected Martin to be out for the season. Mike James will be the team’s starting running back while Martin is recovering.
