Rider Grad Martin Has Knee Surgery

Former Rider Raider and Oklahoma State standout Markelle Martin was put on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List by the Tennessee Titans Tuesday after failing his pre-camp physical.

He then tweeted Wednesday morning that he was heading in for surgery on his right knee, to clean up the same injury that kept him out of drills at the NFL Scouting Combine this Spring.

He said he tried to return too quickly after the initial injury, and it got worse.

The team said they do expect him back at some point this season, so he may start the year on the so-called PUP list, which makes him eligible to return after the team's first six games.
