Part of the reason Martin wasn’t able to get on track against the Jets was because fullback Erik Lorig missed the game with a calf injury. The Bucs sometimes used one of their tight ends at fullback and sometimes ran Martin out of a one-back set.
With the Bucs bringing back Larsen, I think that’s a sign that Lorig might not be ready to return yet.
