Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin can catch passes from Tom Brady when he’s on the field. But he can’t seem to catch a break.
After missing Week 2 while on the NFL’s concussion protocol, Godwin will reportedly miss Week 3’s game at home against the Chargers and possibly next Thursday against the Bears.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that the MRI Godwin had showed a mild hamstring pull. This may force him to sit out the next two games for the Bucs.
#Bucs productive WR Chris Godwin had his MRI yesterday, and the test confirmed a mild hamstring pull, source said. He’s out this week, and based on the schedule, potentially next Thursday vs the #Bears. But shouldn’t be much more after that.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 30, 2020
The good news is that Tampa Bay has plenty of weapons Brady shares the ball with offensively. However, Godwin offers great balance of hands, route running, and decent speed which you can see the veteran quarterback enjoys having.
There hasn’t been official word from the Bucs yet on the situation. We should expect something today. Surely they are hoping this won’t go beyond this week. But if so, as Rapoport states, it shouldn’t be more than the upcoming two games.
