Doug Martin 'feels fine,' back at Buccaneers practice

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was back at practice Monday after leaving Friday's 25-21 preseason loss with a head injury.

Martin was not concussed but avoided contact Monday as a form of precaution.

Those drafting in fantasy football leagues this week can rest assured that Martin "feels fine" and is ready to play against the Miami Dolphins on Saturday in the Bucs' third preseason game.

Other news from the Buccaneers:

» Darrelle Revis participated in the team portion of practice for the first time Monday. Coach Greg Schiano said the decision on Revis' availability for Saturday's game will be made by the cornerback. Revis doesn't plan to decide until the day of the game. Schiano reiterated that Revis doesn't need to play in the preseason to be ready for Week 1.

» All-Pro guard Carl Nicks is out indefinitely after developing a blister on his infected foot.

» Schiano insists he is not frustrated with Da'Quan Bowers despite a report that the coaching staff was losing patience due to the defensive end's shoddy conditioning.
