- Associated Press - Saturday, December 24, 2016

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will try to keep their playoff hopes alive without running back Doug Martin.

The Buccaneers deactivated Martin on Sunday against New Orleans in what team officials called a coach’s decision. Martin had not been on the Buccaneers‘ injury report as Tampa Bay (8-6) needed a win along with lots of help to remain alive for a wild-card berth.

The Rams benched left tackle Greg Robinson against San Francisco, making the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 draft inactive for the second time this season.
