He added one reception for 11 yards.

He added one reception for eight yards.
Analysis: Martin was outstanding in his season debut and looked fast on nearly every carry. He averaged 5.7 yards per carry and nearly broke free several times. His workload likely will increase in the coming weeks and that should lead to some big performances if he can maintain this level of play.

Analysis: Martin sat out the first three weeks of the season while serving the remainder of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. The two-time Pro Bowl selection also sat out last season's season finale. Martin struggled in 2016 with a hamstring injury that forced him to miss six weeks. He finished with just 421 yards in eight games.

Analysis: Martin was the starter Friday despite being suspended for the first three games of the regular season. Jacquizz Rodgers will fill in, and if he performs well, Martin could lose plenty of touches even when eligible.
