Godwin is slated to miss the Buccaneers' Week 8 game against the Giants after undergoing surgery Tuesday to address a fractured left index finger, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Though Godwin wasn't forced to exit early Sunday in the Buccaneers' 45-20 win over the Raiders, the wideout apparently sustained the injury on his touchdown catch with 7:22 remaining in the fourth quarter. He finished the contest with nine receptions for 88 yards on nine targets while playing 59 of the Bucs' 72 offensive snaps. According to Stroud, Godwin's surgery went without a hitch and his prognosis is good, leaving the Buccaneers optimistic he'll be ready to return to action Week 9 against the Saints. If that's the case, Godwin would be rejoining a pass-catching group that includes the newly signed Antonio Brown, who is expected to be reinstated from his suspension at the conclusion of Week 8.
Godwin hauled in all nine targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 45-20 win over the Raiders on Sunday.
Godwin's catch total led the Buccaneers on the afternoon and both his reception and receiving yardage tallies served as his highest of the campaign as well. The fourth-year wideout also recorded his second touchdown of the season on a four-yard grab with 7:22 remaining in the contest, making it his best all-around fantasy outing of 2020. Godwin's target share is expected to take a hit to a degree whenever Antonio Brown (suspension) gets fully integrated into the offense beginning Week 9, but Godwin should still be a prime target for Tom Brady against the Giants in a Week 8 Monday night battle.
Godwin (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
Godwin returned to the lineup last week and caught five of seven targets for 48 yards while playing 63 percent of offensive snaps. He was a limited practice participant Wednesday through Friday this week, but there isn't any concern about his availability for the game. It is possible Godwin continues to see his workload monitored, rather than handling snap shares in the 85-to-100 percent range the way he did all of last season.
Godwin (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
Both Godwin and Mike Evans (ankle) have been limited in the Buccaneers' first two practices of Week 7, but head coach Bruce Arians hasn't suggested that either wideout is at any real risk of sitting out Sunday's game in Las Vegas. If Godwin follows the same practice pattern from last week, he'll upgrade to full activity Friday and avoid carrying an injury designation into the matchup with the Raiders.
Godwin (hamstring) is listed as limited on Wednesday's injury report.
In his first appearance since Week 3 this past Sunday against the Packers, Godwin logged a 62 percent share of offensive snaps en route to finishing with five catches (on seven targets) for 48 yards in the Buccaneers' 38-10 win. Assuming he escapes the week of practice with no further setbacks with the hamstring, Godwin should take on a larger snap share this weekend in Las Vegas.
Godwin caught five of seven targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 38-10 win over the Packers.
The Bucs' defense dominated for most of the afternoon, leaving little for the team's passing game to do, but Godwin was still able to draw solid target volume in just his third appearance of the year. Expect the game script to be a little more favorable, and Godwin to be more productive, in Week 7's road tilt against the Raiders.
Godwin (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Coach Bruce Arians said he expected the star wideout to return this week, and we now have confirmation after Godwin upgraded to full practice participation Friday. He'll make his first appearance since Week 3, teaming up with Mike Evans to give Tom Brady a formidable duo at wide receiver. Godwin has 11 catches for 143 yards and a touchdown in his two games this year.
Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that he thinks Godwin (hamstring) will return for Sunday's game against Green Bay, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
It sounds like the wide receiver will be treated as a game-time decision, but with a general sense of optimism that he'll be able to suit up. Godwin was a limited practice participant both Wednesday and Thursday, taking a tangible step forward after he was a non-participant all last week. A 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff isn't ideal for fantasy purposes, but it is possible Godwin's status becomes clear before Sunday afternoon.
Godwin (hamstring) was limited at practice Thursday.
For the second day in a row, the Buccaneers listed Godwin with LP next to his name. He's working his way back from a right hamstring strain, so his Week 6 availability could come down to the wire, but Friday's practice report will give an indication of whether he's trending toward his first appearance since Week 3. Elsewhere in the Tampa Bay receiving corps, Mike Evans (ankle) returned to practice with a cap on his reps, Scotty Miller (hip/groin) again was limited, and Justin Watson (chest) remained a full participant.
Godwin (hamstring) is listed as limited on Wednesday's injury report.
After missing the past two games due to a strained right hamstring, Godwin is putting himself in a position to return to action Sunday versus the Packers. He'll have two more chances to increase his level of participation in practice before the Bucs give him a designation for Week 6. Meanwhile, Mike Evans (ankle) was listed as a non-participant, Scotty Miller (hip/groin) was limited and Justin Watson (chest) was full, indicating the varying levels of health in Tampa Bay's receiving corps.
Godwin (hamstring) was able to do some running on a side field Tuesday during the Buccaneers' practice session, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Coming off a right hamstring strain suffered Week 3, Godwin logged no recorded practice activity prior to sitting out the Buccaneers' last two contests. While another update on the extent of Godwin's participation won't be known until the Buccaneers release their first Week 6 injury report Wednesday, the fact that he was on the field while donning a helmet Tuesday -- albeit off to the side rather than with the main group -- represents a meaningful step forward in the recovery process. If Godwin isn't able to make it back for Sunday's game against the Packers, Tyler Johnson and/or Justin Watson (chest) could be in store for more snaps alongside starting wideouts Mike Evans and Scotty Miller.
Godwin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game at Chicago, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Godwin won't be available to the Buccaneers in Week 5 due to a strained right hamstring. Justin Watson (chest) also won't play, so the receiving corps likely will be led by Mike Evans (ankle) and Scotty Miller (hip/groin), both of whom are listed as questionable.
Godwin (hamstring) was unable to practice Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Godwin is expected to miss his third game of the season Thursday at Chicago, which would mark his second DNP in a row due to his current concern, a strained right hamstring. With Godwin out of the lineup this past Sunday against the Chargers, Scotty Miller (hip/groin) stepped up and had five catches (on seven targets) for 83 yards and one touchdown. That said, all of Godwin, Miller, Mike Evans (ankle) and Justin Watson (chest) have yet to practice this week, placing a cloud over the entire receiving corps.
Godwin (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's injury report.
Godwin joined Mike Evans (ankle), Scotty Miller (hip/groin) and Justin Watson (chest) as DNPs to kick off Week 5 prep. There's an expectation Godwin doesn't suit up Thursday at Chicago, but it'd be a great sign for his health if he's able to get back on the practice field this week. In Godwin's stead, Miller racked up five catches (on seven targets) for 83 yards and one touchdown Sunday versus the Chargers.
Coach Bruce Arians doesn't expect Godwin (hamstring) to be available for Thursday's contest at Chicago, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
In a report from Jenna Laine and Dan Graziano of ESPN.com early this past week, it was rumored that Godwin was in line to miss multiple games, the result of the Bucs having two games in a five-day span. Indeed, Godwin didn't suit up Week 4, and now his standing will be monitored with just a handful of days to prepare for the Bears. It's worth noting Mike Evans briefly left Sunday's win versus the Chargers with an ankle injury as well, which could improve the stock of Scotty Miller and Justin Watson in the short term.
Godwin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Reports earlier this week suggested Godwin was in danger of missing multiple games, and it doesn't help his cause that the Bucs play on Thursday Night Football against the Bears in Week 5. He didn't practice at all this week, so a return for the Thursday game doesn't seem especially likely. Fellow wideout Justin Watson has been cleared to return from a shoulder injury for Sunday's game, while Scotty Miller (hip) appears questionable.
Godwin (hamstring) was not spotted at the portion of Friday's practice open to the media, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Godwin appears set to miss his third straight practice of the week, which isn't too surprising considering that the star wideout is in danger of sitting out up to two games. When the Buccaneers release Friday's official practice report this afternoon, an official designation for Godwin's Week 4 availability will be provided.
Godwin (hamstring) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Jenna Laine and Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reported a day earlier that Godwin is likely to be sidelined for the Buccaneers' next two games, so his lack of practice activity Wednesday and Thursday doesn't come as a major surprise. Scotty Miller (hip/groin) is also missing his second practice in a row, so the Buccaneers could be shorthanded at receiver if neither he nor Godwin are cleared to play Sunday against the Chargers. Justin Watson and Tyler Johnson would be the top candidates to join Mike Evans in three-receiver sets if both Godwin and Miller are out.
Godwin (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday.
Godwin's lack of reps Wednesday doesn't come as a shock after Jenna Laine and Dan Graziano of ESPN reported earlier that the wideout is expected to sit out Sunday's game against the Chargers, and perhaps the Bucs' Week 5 game in Chicago as well. Those games are within five days of each other, so the Buccaneers seem to be focused on getting Godwin healthy for a Week 6 showdown with the Packers. Meanwhile, Scotty Miller (hip) also didn't practice Wednesday, so Tampa Bay is left with Mike Evans, Justin Watson (shoulder), Jaydon Mickens and Tyler Johnson as its healthiest options at wide receiver.
Godwin (hamstring) is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Chargers, and he could also be in danger of sitting out the Buccaneers' Week 5 game in Chicago, Jenna Laine and Dan Graziano of ESPN.com report.
After sitting out the Bucs' Week 2 win over Carolina with a concussion, Godwin returned to action last weekend in Denver, but he was forced out of the contest in the third quarter with the right hamstring injury. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Godwin underwent an MRI earlier this week that revealed a minor strain, and given that the wideout also missed time late last season with a hamstring issue, the Buccaneers may be incentivized to take things slowly with him. On a more positive note, the Buccaneers don't believe Godwin's injury is a long-term concern, as the team is hopeful he'll be ready to play again no later than the Week 6 game versus Green Bay.
