Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin announced via Twitter on Monday that he is cleared to return from the shoulder injury that limited him last season. Martin recently told the Tampa Bay Times he expected to be cleared to return to full activity this week. Martin's season ended last year when he sustained the left shoulder injury during the Buccaneers' Week 7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. New coach Lovie Smith recently said he plans for Martin to be the lead ball carrier.
