Friday PM update: Godwin did indeed practice on Friday and Bruce Arians said he looked ok, per Pewter Report. He once again reiterated that the wideout will be a game-time decision.

Friday AM update: Bucs head coach Bruce Arians had his weekly radio show on Friday morning and he said he think Godwin will practice on Friday, per Rick Stroud. Arians said Godwin will be a game-time decision.

Thursday update: Godwin was once again not spotted at the beginning or practice on Thursday, per Rick Stroud as he deals with a foot injury. Maybe we’ll get more clarity from Bruce Arians after practice, but right now it’s not looking great for Godwin.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians told reporters on Wednesday that wide receiver Chris Godwin did not practice as he’s dealing with a foot injury, per Scott Smith.

Fantasy football implications

The Buccaneers are already without Antonio Brown because of an injury, so they can ill-afford to lose Godwin too. The wide receiver has yet to miss a game this season and is coming off of two tremendous performances in Weeks 7 and 8. In Week 7 against the Chicago Bears, the former Penn State standout had eight receptions (11 targets) for 111 yards and a touchdown.

He then followed up that 100-plus yard performance with another one in Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints. Godwin had eight receptions (11 targets) for 140 yards and a score. He also scored 17 and 20 fantasy points, respectively in both games. If Godwin does not play, we could see some snaps from Breshad Perriman, who was just signed earlier this week.
