Friday PM update: Chris Godwin has been removed from the final injury report and will play agains the Packers, per ESPN’s Field Yates. Tom Brady will get Godwin, Mike Evans and LeSean McCoy back this week agains the Packers.

Friday AM update: Chris Godwin practiced again on Friday, prompting beat writer Greg Auman to tweet:

We’ll wait to see if Godwin is still on the injury report this afternoon and what his status is, but he appears to be trending in the right direction for Sunday. Upgrade Tom Brady and the Buccaneer’s offense.

Thursday PM update: Godwin was once again listed as limited on Thursday.

Wednesday PM update: The Bucs returned to practice and Godwin was listed as limited on the injury report.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers returned to practice on Tuesday as they begin preparing for a Week 6 matchup with the Green Bay Packers. The team does not have to release an official practice participation report until Wednesday, but ESPN’s Jenna Laine is reporting that wide receiver Chris Godwin was at practice and doing some running for the first time since the injury.

Godwin was on a side field with training staff, per Laine, but this is still progress for the receiver. The playmaker was off to a solid start with 11 receptions for 143 yards and a touchdown in two games, but injuries have slowed him as he has missed three games in the early part of the season.

The Bucs last played on Thursday Night Football, which could open the door for a return this week against the Packers on Sunday. If he can get in a limited workout on Wednesday, this will be a big step forward.
