Monday PM update: What was bad news has turned into worse news, as Godwin is now out for the season with a torn ACL, per Adam Schefter.

Monday update: The news on Godwin’s knee isn’t as good this morning, as he now appears to be out for the final three games of the regular season, per Ian Rapoport. He should be able to return in the playoffs.

UPDATE: Godwin has an MCL sprain in his knee, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. This is good news in that it isn’t a long term injury, but he could miss some time with the injury.

UPDATE: Both Chris Godwin and Mike Evans are OUT for the rest of the game. Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller will get more work moving forward.

UPDATE: Godwin is questionable to return with a knee injury. Good news that he didn’t suffer an injury to the head or neck.

UPDATE: Godwin appears to have avoided a big injury.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is down on the field after a big hit over the middle on Sunday Night Football. He fell awkwardly on his neck and head. He was able to walk off on his own power though, and went to the medical table.

Godwin has been great this season and already had six receptions for 49 yards before leaving the game.
