NFL.com is reporting that Tampa Bay Buccanneers RB Doug Martin suffered a torn labrum when he was injured and forced from the Bucs most recent game against the Atlanta Falcons, and that he will most likely miss the remainder of the season.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rappaport first reported early Monday that Martin’s torn labrum would sideline Tampa Bay’s starting running back “several weeks” and that it could jeopardize his 2013 season. Hours later, Rappaport and NFL Media’s Albert Breer confirmed that the injury would be season-ending.

Martin suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Bucs’ loss to the Falcons as he was diving to make a catch on a Mike Glennon pass deep in Atlanta territory. Martin was hit by Falcons defender William Moore and immediately clutched at his shoulder as he lay on the turf for several minutes. Moore was initially flagged for the hit, but the referees later withdrew the penalty. Martin eventually left the field and did not return to the game.

Martin’s injury leaves his primary backup, rookie Mike James, as the likely starter for Tampa Bay’s next game, a Thursday night match-up against NFC South rival Carolina.
