Doug Martin and Dashon Goldson don't have long-term injuries but they could both miss Thursday's game. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers appear to be luck with Doug Martin's injury. The running back suffered a shoulder injury in the 31-23 loss against the Atlanta Falcons but he told the Tampa Bay Times that he "feels alright right now" after the game. The Times notes that early x-rays appeared to look good. Whether he'll be able to play Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers remains to be seen though. If Martin can't go rookie Mike James is likely to fill in for him.
