The Buccaneers do not plan on naming a clear-cut starter between Peyton Barber and Martin for Monday night's game against the Falcons, leaving the latter's expected workload uncertain, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Martin believes he was benched after fumbling during a 24-21 loss to the Lions on Sunday, ESPN.com's Jenna Laine reports. "When you turn the ball over and you fumble, your chances get cut pretty short, so that's what happened there," said Martin.
Martin rushed 10 times for 26 yards and a touchdown and brought in two of three targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Lions. He also lost a fumble.
