The Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered a tough blow to their offensive unit on Monday. Chris Godwin will miss the rest of the season.
Initially, it was being reported as a sprained MCL. However, head coach Bruce Arians said that Godwin suffered a torn ACL.
He was injured on Sunday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints. The play looked bad when it happened and now we know he’ll miss the rest of the season.
Depending on his recovery, Godwin may also miss the start of the 2022 season. Typically, there is a 9-month recovery once the surgery takes place.
Godwin was one of Tom Brady’s favorite targets. Now, the future Hall of Famer will have to play the rest of the regular season and playoffs without his reliable target.
He’ll have to turn to Mike Evans, who is week-to-week with a hamstring injury. He was also injured on Sunday night against the Saints.
Outside of Evans, Brady will have to turn to Antonio Brown, who recently returned to the team after serving a three-game suspension, Breshad Perriman, Tyler Johnson, and Scotty Miller. Tight ends Rob Gronkowski, Cameron Brate, and O.J. Howard will have to pick up the slack.
Before the injury, Godwin had six receptions for 49 yards.
In 14 starts, Godwin had 98 receptions for 1,103 yards. He also had five touchdowns.© 2007-2022 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
