The Dolphins activated Godchaux from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. Godchaux spent two days on the list before being cleared to return to team facilities. The 25-year-old nose tackle is heading into his fourth year with the Dolphins after marking career highs in tackles (75) and sacks (two) in 2019. However, Godchaux could face competition from rookie second-round pick Raekwon Davis (illness) through training camp.
The Dolphins placed Godchaux (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. The nose tackle has either tested positive for COVID-19 or come into close contact with someone who did. He'll need to gain full clearance before returning to practice.
Godchaux finished the 2019 season with 75 tackles (33 solo), two sacks and one defended pass across 16 contests. Godchaux set career-high marks in terms of both tackles and sacks, and he played a full 16-game slate for the second straight season. He has one year remaining on his rookie contract.
Godchaux recorded six tackles (three solo) and 0.5 sacks during Sunday's 38-35 overtime win against the Bengals. Godchaux now has a career-high 71 tackles and two sacks across 15 contests. The third-year pro has emerged as a legitimate IDP asset, and he'll look to finish strong during Sunday's season-finale against the Patriots.
Godchaux recorded seven tackles (four solo) and a half-sack during Sunday's 41-24 loss to the Browns. Godchaux notched a season-high tackle count during Sunday's loss, and he now has 1.5 sacks on the year. His consistency as a run stopper makes Godchaux a viable IDP asset, but he lacks much upside as a pass rusher. The third-year pro will look to keep his momentum up against the Eagles in Week 13.
