Update: Godwin is back on the field for Tampa’s next drive, so he’s clearly feeling good and that’s great news for the Bucs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin suffered an injury in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs, although the exact nature of the injury is unknown. Godwin did walk off the field on his own power, so that’s a good sign regarding the severity of his injury.

Godwin played in Week 1 against the Cowboys but suffered a hamstring injury late in the contest. It was surprising to see Godwin play in Week 1 after he was recovering from an ACL tear from the previous season. The hamstring kept Godwin off the field for Weeks 2 and 3 before the receiver made his return to the field Sunday night in Week 4.

We’ll see if Godwin can return to this contest or if the Bucs decide to hold him out with a comeback looking unlikely. If he cannot return, Mike Evans and Julio Jones will take on bigger roles in the offense.
