Martin rushed 15 times for 61 yards and caught all three of his targets for 31 more yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.
Martin was perhaps the lone bright spot in an otherwise dull day for the Raiders. The yardage total was his best of the year and accompanied a season-high 15 carries. He out-touched Jalen Richard 18 to eight, but with Oakland struggling to find the end zone, touchdowns will be hard to come for the 29-year-old. While he still has not scored this season, he does at least have an appealing Week 11 matchup at Arizona.
Martin (hip) doesn't have an injury status for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Martin started the week with a pair of limited practices and never seemed to be in much danger of missing the game. Workload is his real concern on an Oakland team that's been struggling to keep games competitive. The Chargers have given up 4.4 yards per carry, but their success on the other side of the ball has sometimes forced opponents to abandon the run, including a 26-10 win over the Raiders in Week 5 when Marshawn Lynch (groin) was limited to nine carries.
Martin was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a hip injury, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Martin likely picked up the minor injury during Thursday's 34-3 loss to the 49ers, finishing with 11 carries for 49 yards and one catch for 20 yards on two targets. He's locked in as the lead ballcarrier with Marshawn Lynch (groin) on injured reserve, but Sunday's game against the Chargers looks like another matchup that could lead to regular snaps for passing-down back Jalen Richard. The hip injury doesn't seem like nearly as much of a concern.
Martin once again handed lead-back duties and was fairly efficient in the role. However, game flow certainly conspired against him, as the 49ers boasted 17-3 lead at halftime that they'd expanded to 31-3 by the end of three quarters. Martin has rushed 24 times for 121 yards in his first two games as the No. 1 back, a feat made all the more impressive by the fact it's taken place behind an offensive line that often has trouble providing any type of resistance against opposing fronts. Martin will hope for more opportunities against the Chargers in a Week 10 battle.
Martin rushed 13 times for 72 yards while catching both of his targets for 17 yards and losing a fumble in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Colts.
Martin was the clear-cut top option on the ground in the wake of Marshawn Lynch's groin injury, as Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington combined for just three carries. The former Buccaneers running back lost a costly fumble one play after Indianapolis took a 35-28 lead in the fourth quarter. By the time Oakland next got the ball, it was 42-28. Martin won't have much time to dwell on that mistake, as he'll be right back in action Thursday in a Week 9 tilt with the 49ers.
