Bucs RB Martin reverts to form of stellar rookie season

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) A rejuvenated Doug Martin is healthy for the first time in three years and not the least bit surprised that he's re-establishing himself as one of the top running backs in the NFL.

Neither are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3), who are off to their best start since 2012, when the soft-spoken, versatile fourth-year pro was a rookie and finished third in the league in total yards from scrimmage.

"I never doubted myself," Martin, coming off consecutive 100-yard rushing performances that not only bolstered his confidence but showed how much a productive running game can mean to a young quarterback.
