Keshawn Martin (hamstring) caught his only target for an eight-yard gain in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Broncos.
Playing for the first time since Week 6, Martin handled 62 of the 67 offensive snaps, with Chris Harper getting just five, according to Pro Football Focus. Tom Brady mostly avoided the Denver cornerbacks, which allowed New England's tight ends and running backs to combine for 31 of the 42 targets. If Danny Amendola (knee) were to miss another game, Martin would likely see a few more looks in a favorable matchup with the Eagles.
Keshawn Martin (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Broncos.
With Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson all out this week, Martin should have a chance to assume a key role in the New England Patriots ' Week 12 offense along with fellow wideout Brandon LaFell and perhaps Chris Harper, though the Broncos -- who have allowed a league-low average of 190.6 passing yards per game to date -- represent a touch matchup for the trio, in less-than-balmy and potentially snowy Denver.
Keshawn Martin (hamstring) is expected to be active for Sunday night's game against the Broncos, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
With Julian Edelman out with a foot injury, Aaron Dobson on IR and Danny Amendola having been ruled out this week, there's an opportunity for Martin (assuming he suits up) to step into a key role in the New England Patriots ' Week 12 offense along with fellow wideout Brandon LaFell and possibly Chris Harper, though the Broncos -- who have allowed a league-low average of 190.6 passing yards per game to date -- present them all with a less than optimal matchup, in chilly and possibly snowy conditions in Denver.
Keshawn Martin (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, the Boston Herald reports.
As is fellow wideout Danny Amendola, though with Martin not having suited up since Week 6 and the New England Patriots not kicking off until 8:30 ET on Sunday, Martin looks like a risky roll in Week 12. Down the road though, when his health and role in the team's offense are re-established, Martin could carve out some deep league utility in the absence of Julian Edelman.
Keshawn Martin (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday.
Despite not having see action since Week 6, Martin's Week 12 status is of some import to the New England Patriots ' offense, given that Julian Edelman is out with a foot injury, Aaron Dobson has a high ankle sprain and Danny Amendola is dealing with a sprained knee. Once Martin is finally able to rejoin the team's lineup, there may be a significant role waiting for him, in light of the rash of injuries that the Patriots have experienced at wideout of late.
