Doug Martin Suspended

So now we know the deal with Doug Martin – why he was surprisingly inactive for the Saints game, and in turn the finale against Carolina this weekend.

Martin released a statement late this afternoon, saying he’s been suspended four games for violating the league’s drug policy.  Not only that, he’s entering rehab for it.  Martin’s suspension starts with Sunday’s game against the Panthers, then he will have to sit out the first three games of 2017.  What happens to him after that remains uncertain.

Wow.  I didn’t see this coming.

Martin was the league’s second-leading rusher last year, but this season has been a disappointment.  He missed a bunch of games due to injury, and when he has been on the field, he just hasn’t been the same.
