The second-year running back suffered a torn labrum in Week 7 and will finally go to injured reserve, ending his 2013 season.

The 2013 season is over for Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin, as the team placed the second-year back on injured reserve on Friday, three weeks after he suffered a torn labrum in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Martin, 24, told reporters earlier in the week that, while surgery was inevitable to repair the shoulder, he was making progress and everything was "looking good" for a return in 2013. However, the roster move on Friday likely means Martin will have the surgery sooner rather than later.
