      Updating a previous report, Martin (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Browns.

      Analysis: With Martin held out of practice the last three days due to the ankle injury, the Bucs look poised to enter Week 9 with a backfield comprised of Bobby Rainey, Mike James and Charles Sims (ankle). If either option thrives in his stead Sunday, Martin could find himself on the shorter end of a running back committee once he returns to active duty.

      According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, Sims (ankle) is expected to be activated from the designated for return Injured Reserve on Saturday and play against Cleveland on Sunday.

      Analysis: Sims was selected in the third round of the most recent draft, so the Lovie Smith regime clearly had a particular use in mind for him when they added him to the roster in May. Whether that was as a potential feature back role or as a pass-catching complement to Doug Martin isn't obviously clear, but Sims ought to see the field early and potentially often as he shakes off the rust in the upcoming weeks, because it's increasingly appearing as if Martin doesn't have a long-term role with the Buccaneers. Moreover, Tampa Bay has an interest in evaluating younger players like Sims as they attempt to continue the rebuilding process. Sims isn't a powerful runner and isn't especially fast or quick, but he moves smoothly for the most part and is likely well above the league average as a receiver. He is particularly interesting for his PPR upside, but he's worth stashing in many leagues, PPR or not.

      Johnson (hand) is questionable for Sunday's game against Cleveland.

      Analysis: Johnson practiced all week, though only in a limited capacity. Johnson's presence would be reassuring for the Buccaneers after they gave him a five-year, $43.75 million deal in the offseason, yet he has only 15 tackles and two sacks in six games.

      Jackson (ribs) is probable for Sunday's game against Cleveland.

      Analysis: Jackson's rib issue appears to nearly be past him, so hopefully he can start capitalizing on his high target count this week. Prior to a five-target aberration against the Vikings last week, Jackson totaled 60 targets in six games.

      Charles (back) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Jets, the Chiefs' official site reports.

      Analysis: Charles practiced fully all week, so there is little doubt that he will be available Sunday to head the Chiefs' Week 9 rushing attack.
