According to Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network, Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is holding out hope that his season isn’t over after suffering a torn labrum in his shoulder. It certainly looks like he won’t be playing this Thursday against the Panthers.
Bucs still holding out hope Doug Martin (shoulder) isn’t done for year. He’s almost certain to Thursday game but hasn’t yet been ruled out.

With the Bucs being 0-6 they might as well sit him for the rest of the season and allow his shoulder to heal.
