Erik Lorig RB TB 3 Months
Bucs FB Erik Lorig will make his season debut Sunday after missing Week 1 with a calf injury.
Lorig's Week 1 absence may have played a role in Doug Martin's inability to find running lanes against the Jets; the Buccaneers often employ Lorig as a lead blocker in the I-formation. Lorig also chips in on special teams. Expect a bounce-back game from Martin against the talent-deficient Saints defense.

Bucs FB Erik Lorig's 2013 salary jumped from $575,000 to $1 million based on rookie-deal incentives.
Lorig has appeared in all 32 games over the past two seasons, starting 14 of them. He's never carried the ball, but he does have 19 career catches for 146 yards and a touchdown. Lorig will return for the final year of his deal to be Doug Martin's lead blocker.
