Tampa, FL-- Bucs' head coach Greg Schiano refuted national reports, that RB Doug Martin is out for the season with a torn labrum.
Schiano acknowledged Martin has a shoulder injury. And he said, it was a stretch that he would play Thursday against Carolina.
"I'm not going to get into specifics of exactly what his issue is," Schiano told reporters. "If it was season-ending, I'd let you know, but I don't feel that it is right now. We don't feel that it is, our medical team. We're just going to play it by ear and go from there."
The Bucs signed RB Bobby Rainey, who most recently played for Cleveland.
