Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Officially listed as doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (concussion) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

However, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Godwin could be upgraded to 'questionable' if doctors give him favorable feedback after he goes through more testing Saturday. This is especially noteworthy after the Bucs upgraded Mike Evans (hamstring) from doubtful to questionable last weekend, then used him on 93 percent of offensive snaps in a loss to the Saints. Evans has been removed from the Week 2 injury report, so he could be looking at a huge target haul if Godwin doesn't end up playing. Scotty Miller and Justin Watson would round out three-wide formations in that scenario, but it's also possible the Bucs would use more multi-TE looks with Godwin out of the lineup. Fortunately, the Bucs and Panthers are scheduled for a 1 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday, giving Godwin's fantasy managers a full array of alternatives if he's declared inactive.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Not expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Godwin (concussion) is "still doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

It remains to be seen if Godwin will get the corresponding designation on the final injury report, or if he'll instead be listed as 'questionable' or 'out'. He was present at the team facility Friday morning, undergoing testing to evaluate his concussion symptoms.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Back at practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (concussion) was present at practice Friday with a helmet, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old sat out the first two practices of the week while in the concussion protocol, but he appears to have made some progress Friday. Godwin still may not have fully cleared the protocol, but the fact he's practicing in some capacity is good news and opens the window for him suiting up Week 2. More information will be available when Tampa Bay releases its official injury report later in the day.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Missing another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (concussion) won't participate in Thursday's practice, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Buccaneers first placed Godwin in the NFL's concussion protocol Wednesday, so his lack of activity a day later doesn't come as a major surprise. He'll still have two full days to clear the five-step protocol ahead of Sunday's game against the Panthers, and ideally, Godwin would put in a limited or full workout in the Bucs' final practice session of the week Friday to provide a sign that he's progressing. Fellow starting wideout Mike Evans (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, so the Tampa Bay passing attack could be operating at less-than-full strength Week 2.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Misses practice with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Godwin landed in the league's five-step concussion protocol Wednesday after absorbing a hard hit to the head in Sunday's loss to the Saints. Since he didn't report his concussion symptoms until Wednesday, his absence from practice later in the day comes as little surprise. The wideout is unlikely to be back on the field until Friday at the earliest, leaving the Buccaneers' receiving corps in shaky condition heading into a Week 2 matchup with Carolina. With fellow starter Mike Evans (hamstring) listed as limited Wednesday, Scotty Miller and Justin Watson begin the week as Tampa Bay's top healthy receivers.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Lands in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said Wednesday that Godwin has entered the concussion protocol, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Godwin took a hard hit during Sunday's 34-23 loss to New Orleans, and while he initially didn't display any symptoms, Arians revealed that the wide receiver is now being monitored for after effects of a possible concussion. Godwin apparently noticed symptoms early Wednesday, so he'll be held out of practice for at least a day or two. His status for the Bucs' Week 2 matchup with the Panthers is unknown.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Leading target for Brady in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin caught six of seven target for 79 yards in Sunday's 34-23 loss to the Saints.

All three figures led the Bucs in Tom Brady's debut at quarterback, a very encouraging sign for the chemistry between the duo. Mike Evans may not have been 100 percent for the contest after battling a hamstring strain early in the week, creating more opportunities for Godwin, but there's no guarantee Brady's 43-year-old arm will be able to take full advantage of Evans as a downfield threat even when he's healthy. After a career year in 2019 that included 121 targets, Godwin appears headed for high volume again this season.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Returns from brief absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin returned to practice Thursday morning, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Godwin was held out the previous two days, albeit with no report of an injury. Absent any further updates, he should be ready for his usual every-down role and steady target volume Week 1 in New Orleans.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Misses multiple practices
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin has missed three practices recently, including back-to-back sessions Tuesday and Wednesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

When asked about Godwin's absences, coach Bruce Arians declined to provide much insight, but the prevailing thought is that the wideout may be dealing with some sort of a minor injury. Godwin has reportedly looked good when he's been able to practice, quickly developing chemistry with new quarterback Tom Brady.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Strong rapport with Brady
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin has been consistently making plays throughout early training camp practices and demonstrating his trademark run-after-catch ability, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

The fourth-year wideout has stood out as a frequent quick-strike target for Tom Brady during practices over the last few days, with some nifty moves that facilitated a few extra yards after a short grab in Thursday's session drawing some ire for the linebackers from position coach Larry Foote. Godwin was part of the skill-position group that regularly met with Brady for workouts at Berkeley Preparatory School for multiple weeks earlier this summer, and the work they put in has seemed to pay dividends in the form of frequent connections at varying depths downfield in the early portion of training camp.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Continues attending workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin was among approximately a dozen Buccaneers players present for a two-hour workout at Berkeley Preparatory School on Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Despite the NFLPA advising players to not continue congregating for private workouts in the wake of a slew of coronavirus infections around the country and to multiple players, quarterback Tom Brady continues to convene the early morning sessions at Berkeley. The group that's regularly in attendance has steadily grown, and Godwin has been a consistent participant from the start several weeks ago. He once again ran a full array of routes Tuesday, working alongside new arrival Rob Gronkowski, among others. Godwin's 2020 outlook is bright with Brady at the helm, although the addition of Gronkowski certainly has the potential to eat into the overall target share on the team.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Now catching passes from HOFer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hamstring) is slated to catch passes from Tom Brady after the latter agreed to a two-year deal with the Buccaneers this week, Jim Trotter of NFL.com reports.

Godwin navigated the inaccuracy and ball-security issues of Jameis Winston to post a career-best 86-1,333-9 line in 2019, his first season in coach Bruce Arians' aggressive passing attack. He now gets an upgrade at quarterback in Brady, with the future Hall of Famer having long excelled at completing the intermediate routes that Godwin has thrived with over his first three seasons. The Penn State product recorded 22 catches of between 20 and 39 yards last season, and Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times relays further optimism about Godwin's prospects from ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky, who believes Brady's arm remains more than strong enough to thrive on the downhill play-action passes that Arians' system frequently calls for.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Can't play in Pro Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hamstring) won't play in the Pro Bowl, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Godwin's hamstring injury has lingered deep into January, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will still be an issue when the Bucs start their offseason program in mid-April. The team's quarterback situation is a bigger concern, with Jameis Winston set to become an unrestricted free agent if the Bucs don't use the franchise tag or sign him to a new contract before March 18.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Ruled out for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Godwin hasn't been able to practice since he suffered the hamstring injury Week 15. He was one of the top breakout stars of the 2019 season, hauling in 86 of 121 targets for 1,333 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games. Godwin heads into Week 17 ranking second among qualified pass catchers in yards per game (95.2) and fourth in yards per target (11.0), with teammate Mike Evans (89.0 YPG, 9.8 YPT) not too far behind. Jameis Winston will have Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson as his top wide receivers for Week 17.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Absent for another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hamstring) wasn't spotted on the field during Thursday's practice and will go down as a non-participant on the Buccaneers' official report, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Tampa Bay also listed Godwin as a non-participant when the team released its initial Week 17 report Wednesday, but his activity was merely estimated since the team didn't hold an actual practice Christmas Day. Unless Godwin surprisingly takes the field in some capacity for the Bucs' final practice of the week Friday, he'll be highly unlikely to suit up for Sunday's season finale versus the Falcons.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Not participating to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on the Buccaneers' estimated practice report Wednesday.

Tampa Bay didn't hold a practice Wednesday due to the holiday, but it doesn't sound like Godwin would have been able to get on the field if the team had scheduled a workout. While Godwin will have two more opportunities to work through the injury and practice in some fashion, his early chances of playing in the season finale Sunday against the Falcons don't appear promising.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Officially out for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians ruled Godwin (hamstring) out for Saturday's game against the Texans, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

The news comes as no real surprise after Arians indicated after last week's win over the Lions that Godwin's hamstring injury was similar to the one suffered the prior week by Mike Evans, who was ultimately moved to injured reserve Wednesday. For now, the Buccaneers will take a wait-and-see approach with Godwin for the Dec. 29 regular-season finale against the Falcons, but the third-year wideout's absence for Week 16 will loom large. Along with Godwin and Evans, the Buccaneers' receiving corps will also be missing rookie Scott Miller (hamstring), who was placed on IR earlier this week. Expect wideouts Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson, tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate and running backs Dare Ogunbowale and Ronald Jones to operate as Jameis Winston's main weapons in the passing game.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Ends week without practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hamstring) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

With Godwin having failed to practice in any fashion Tuesday through Thursday, he'll carry an injury designation into Saturday's matchup with the Texans if coach Bruce Arians doesn't officially rule the receiver out when he meets with the media at the conclusion of practice. In addition to Godwin's expected absence Saturday, the Buccaneers will be missing Mike Evans (hamstring) and Scott Miller (hamstring), who were moved to injured reserve earlier this week. That leaves Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson as the top options in a depleted wideout corps, while tight ends O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate should also be tasked with picking up some of the vacated targets.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: No practice reps Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday.

The results of Tuesday's MRI on Godwin's hamstring are unknown, but the wide receiver hasn't stepped on the practice field yet this week. The Buccaneers are three days out from their Week 16 matchup with the Texans, so Godwin seems to be in danger of donning street clothes this weekend. With Mike Evans and Scott Miller landing on injured reserve Tuesday due to their own hamstring injuries, Tampa Bay may have to rely on Breshad Perriman and Justin Watson as its top options at wide receiver. Meanwhile, the tight-end duo of O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate should have elevated roles in the passing attack.

Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Not practicing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godwin (hamstring) isn't participating in Tuesday's practice, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Godwin was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday, so the Buccaneers will presumably hold him out of practice until his test results are known. Even if the MRI clears Godwin of any significant damage to his hamstring, the Buccaneers don't seem to be counting on the wideout making it back on a short week, as Tampa Bay hosts the Texans on Saturday. With Mike Evans and Scott Miller also sidelined to begin the week with hamstring injuries of their own, the Buccaneers are down to Breshad Perriman, Justin Watson, Ishmael Hyman and Cyril Grayson as the healthy receivers on their roster.
