Doug Martin is officially back.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Monday they activated the running back for Week 5. Martin served the final three games of a four-game suspension to open the season.

The team waived tight end Alan Cross to make room for Martin on the active roster.

During offseason and preseason work, Martin looked like a rejuvenated runner, closer to the 1,400-yard back we saw in 2015, than the disappointing rusher of 2016.

Tampa can certainly use a spry Martin after opening the season on a pass-happy pace. Jameis Winston has attempted 30, 40, and 38 passes in three games to open the season, to mixed results.
