Bucs coach Lovie Smith doesn't plan to use Doug Martin to the extent that old coach Greg Schiano did the last two years.
The Bucs plan is to utilize all of their running backs in an effort to keep Martin healthy coming off of a serious shoulder injury. However, Martin is expected to get the lion share of the carries while being used out of the backfield on passing plays. With a very good wide receiving core on paper, the running game for the Bucs could be one of the better backfields to invest in, that is if everyone lives up to their full potential.
