The slew of season ending injury news from the NFL Week 7 continued on Monday as it is now being reported that Buccaneer’s running back Doug Martin will likely miss the remainder of the year with a torn labrum in his shoulder, according to NFL.com.

This after the Rams’ Sam Bradford (torn ACL) , the Colts’ Reggie Wayne (torn ACL) , the Texans’ Brian Cushing (broken leg), and Packers’ TE Jermichael Finley (carted off the field with neck/head injury) – all big name NFL stars – were injured in Sunday’s Week 7 matchups.

NFL.com is reporting:

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported early Monday morning that Martin could miss “several weeks or longer” with the injury. Now NFL Media’s Albert Breer is reporting, per a source who spoke to Martin, that the running back has a torn labrum and will miss the remainder of the season.

The injury to Martin comes just three days after the team’s official website, Buccaneers.com, posted an article touting the young RB’s feeling that he could handle the heavy workload of being the team’s every-down back.

Buccaneers.com has Brian Leonard as the team’s second string running back although it is likely they will make a signing of the free-agent scrap-heap very soon.
