Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns, the team announced Friday.
Martin sat out his third straight practice Friday, after injuring his ankle during last Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Running back Bobby Rainey is expected to start, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Martin has played in five games this season, averaging 2.9 yards per carry. As a first-round pick out of Boise State, Martin was a finalist for the 2012 NFL rookie of the year award. He set a franchise record for rushing yardage and touchdowns in a single game after posting 251 yards and four touchdowns against the Oakland Raiders in his first season.
The Bucs are 1-6 and face the 4-3 Browns on Sunday.
