Doug Martin needed to shoulder the burden again
by Marty Gitlin |

The plan of the Buccaneers to use multiple backs to keep featured back Doug Martin strong and healthy after a shoulder injury ended his 2013 season has gone by the wayside.

The loss of rookie Charles Sims (ankle) and Mike James (shoulder) has destroyed the depth at that position. Only Bobby Rainey remains as a viable backup, but Lovie Smith has expressed confidence that Martin can carry the load.

"Doug is our bell cow," he told Pro Football Talk. "He likes that role, He's had a good camp, hasn't missed a beat."

Martin struggled last year to maintain his production from 2012. His per-carry average dropped from 4.6 to 3.6.

Da'Quan Bowers warned by coach about his absence
by Marty Gitlin |

Buccaneers defensive tackle Da'Quan Bowers is not just nursing a groin strain, but now he must think about the warning of Lovie Smith that threatens his starting job.

"I think every day you don't practice, you're hurting your chances," Smith told the Tampa Tribune. "And we've seen enough to like Da'Quan a lot. But all the reps that he's not getting, someone else is getting them.

"The best way to beat your competition sometimes is just to stay on the field. You can't get Wally Pipp'd. Da'Quan is trying to get back, and again I think he has a future in the league, whether it be as a defensive end or a third-down rush-guy inside."

Bowers lost playing time and production in each of the last two years.
