Bobby Rainey takes out the garbage Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey managed to get some action in garbage time after an awful start.

Rainey was terrible early on, fumbling on his fourth touch of the contest. He was benched for two series before returning to the game. On the first drive of the third quarter, Rainey fumbled again. With the team trailing 56-0, Rainey actually managed to pick up some yardage in the final quarter. He was primarily used in the passing game, but also picked up a few rushing yards.

Rainey finished with 41 rushing yards on 11 attempts, and 64 receiving yards on six catches. He actually led all Bucs receivers in yardage and catches. 

Rainey will take on the Steelers Week 4.

Bucs might use three RBs Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Even if Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, who is questionable due to a knee injury, suits up Thursday against the Falcons, coach Lovie Smith indicated the team will use multiple running backs to pace the rushing attack Week 3.

Bobby Rainey rushed for 144 yards in a Week 2 loss vs. St. Louis and third-string running back Mike James had six carries with Martin sidelined Sunday.

"We want to play more than one running back, two, maybe three," Smith said, per ESPN. "That’s why we’ve had three (active) every time we could. That’s just making our running back position stronger."

Bobby Rainey gashes Rams for 174 yards of total offense
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers running back Bobby Rainey got the start in place of an injured Doug Martin (knee) and turned in a monster performance, racking 174 yards of total offense in a Week 2 loss to the Rams.

Rainey ripped a 24-yard run on his first touch of the afternoon and was the focal point of the offense throughout the day. He gashed the defense for a 31-yard run late in the fourth quarter for his longest gain of the game. He took 22 handoffs for 144 yards on the ground, averaging 6.5 yards per attempt. He caught all three of his targets for 30 yards in a 19-17 defeat.

It remains to be seen if Martin will regain his status as the starter, or if head coach Lovie Smith rolls with Rainey, who has the hot hand heading into Week 3 Thursday night at Atlanta.

Bobby Rainey likely to receive bulk of carries Sunday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers back Bobby Rainey will probably be receiving the heaviest workload Sunday even if featured back Doug Martin plays. Martin will at either be limited or out with a knee injury.

Rainey had four carries for 12 yards in the season opener.

Did Doug Martin get benched?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith suggested in a radio interview that he preferred using running back Bobby Rainey in the fourth quarter Week 1 even though Doug Martin was "ready to go" after sustaining a "minor" knee injury.

"Doug did go down with a little minor injury there, so we had to make a change, and from there he was able to come back and he was ready to go," Smith said on WDAE-AM 620. "Bobby had come and had given us a little bit of life, and as I've mentioned we want to play more than one running back throughout. So it was just a perfect time to keep both of them involved."

Martin ran nine times for 9 yards in the loss to Carolina. After the injury he did not get a handoff, though he was targeted once. He said after the game that he needs to "wait and see" how severe his injury is.
