Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin Could Be Sidelined a Few Weeks

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin (hamstring) could be sidelined for a few weeks, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Godwin looked solid to start the game with a 25-yard play off a screen pass early on. He came up hobbled in the first half of their Week 1 game and did not return. The hamstring injury sounds like it will cost him some time, with a more detailed timetable likely to come later in the week. Continue to monitor this situation as we await more information on the severity of the injury.

In 2021, Godwin made 98 receptions on 127 targets for 1,103 yards and six touchdowns. Mike Evans and Julio Jones will likely be the biggest beneficiaries in Godwin’s absence, however long that may be.
