Monday update: Godwin has passed his concussion test and is expected to play in Week 3 against the Broncos, per Dov Kleinman.
Saturday update: The Bucs have downgraded Chris Godwin from doubtful to out. He will not play on Sunday against the Panthers.
Friday afternoon update: Although Godwin did practice on Friday, he was limited and head coach Bruce Arians describes his status for Sunday as doubtful, per James Palmer.
Friday morning update: Godwin is at practice today, per The Tampa Bay Times’ Rick Stroud. It is unknown if he has cleared concussion protocol, but it is a good sign that he’s out there.
Godwin did mostly light stretching. He did catch some passes on the sideline. Practicing does not mean a player has cleared concussion protocol. Light exercise and even non-contact drills are permitted and assessment is done after to see how the player responds, if any setbacks.— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) September 18, 2020
Thursday morning update: Godwin is not at the Bucs morning practice, according to Greg Auman. If he’s announced as a DNP for the day, it does not bode well for Sunday. If he’s announced as limited, it likely means he’s making progress through the concussion protocol, so we’ll keep an eye out for that specific detail.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is in the concussion protocol after experiencing symptoms on Wednesday, per the Tampa Bay Times’ Rick Stroud. Godwin apparently didn’t have any symptoms on Monday or Tuesday, but experienced some Wednesday.
Godwin took a big hit over the middle from D.J. Swearinger on Sunday against the Saints . He’ll need to be cleared by an independent doctor before getting back to the field on Sunday against the Panthers.
The Buccaneers other stud wide receiver, Mike Evans, was able to practice on Wednesday and appears to be heading into Week 2 in better shape than Week 1. If Godwin can’t get cleared before Sunday, Scotty Miller would likely see another good amount of targets and be worth a fantasy spot.
