Doug Martin suspended for violating NFL PED policy

Doug Martin suspended for violating NFL PED policyā€¯

Martin was just issued a four game suspension, meaning he will miss the Tampa Bay Buccaneers season finale, and the first three games of their 2017 campaign.

Doug Martin, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back, will serve a four-game suspension effective immediately, after violating the NFL's drug policy.

Good for Doug for admitting his battles. At the center of it was the Bucs trying to keep him healthy to avoid a $7 million injury guarantee. He has taken the same approach to his off field life. "This was not the season I envisioned and I have let everyone down, including myself". My shortcomings in this area have taught me both that I can not win these personal battles alone and that there is no shame in asking for help.

The Bucs face the Panthers on Sunday and must win if they want to have any hope of securing the final wild card spot in the playoffs.

Paul's to hold traditional Christmas Eve service
Sixteen months and hundreds of hours worth of renovations later and the church is set to reopen for three masses on Christmas Eve. Union Baptist Church, located on Colvard Road, Millers Creek, will have a Christmas Eve communion service at 9 p.m.

General manager Jason Licht said he supports Martin's efforts to seek recovery.

Martin, a two-time Pro Bowl running back, struggled this season, averaging 2.9 yards per carry, the lowest among all running backs with 100-plus carries.

"Right now, I'm not going to say anything about who's going to play this week because I don't want to do Carolina any favors as to who we're going to play", Koetter said. He inked a five-year, $35.75 million contract last spring to remain in Tampa. "But I'm sure he'll come back and have a strong year next year".

"It was so late, I didn't even get a chance to sit there and look at his face", Winston said of Saturday's decision to not play Martin. "I can't speak on that. But everything that's beyond my reach, I can't control".
