After missing most of last season with a shoulder injury, Martin missed two games for the Buccaneers this year with a knee injury. In the time he has been on the field he hasn't looked great.
Martin hasn't had a 100-yard outing in his past seven games, and this season he has fewer than 50 rushing yards in all three contests he's participated in.
The problem hasn't been just the Buccaneers' blocking. Pro Football Focus charted Martin as causing just three missed tackles on his 37 carries and six receptions this season. That low percentage ranks him 39th out of 43 running backs with at least 25 percent of a team's attempts.
"Yeah, there's been times where it's definitely been close," he said. "These guys work hard. They work their butts off in practice. Everyone (holds) each other accountable for this. We're going to get it going and I can't wait until it happens. (I'll) just continue what I do -- just run the ball hard, follow my keys and just keep going hard like I do."
