Bucs Martin okay after leaving game following a blow to his head

Bucs running back Doug Martin is okay despite having to leave Friday's preseason game against New England in the first quarter with a head injury.

Martin appeared to be kicked in the head trying to block Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones during a pass play. He was taken to the locker room for evaluation.

"I think Doug is going to be fine,'' Bucs coach Greg Schiano said. "He got hit in the head but he cleared really quickly. I saw him at halftime and he was fine. He was going to play one more play.''
