Last Sunday the Bucs saw wide receiver Chris Godwin leave the field and not return following a play where he wasn’t contacted. The team revealed he suffered a hamstring injury but had no other information, pending an MRI this week.

On Wednesday morning NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted out that Godwin and the Bucs may have dodged a bullet, although the Pro Bowler will miss some time.

The NFL has seen a rash of devastating injuries early this season, and so far the Buccaneers have avoided anything major. Mike Evans (hamstring) was not 100 percent in Week 1 against the Saints but was able to play, although ineffectively. And Godwin suffered a concussion in the same game, missing the following week’s game against the Panthers.

Starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting also left Sunday’s game against Denver with a groin/hamstring injury. So far there have been no updates on Murphy-Bunting who head coach Bruce Arians said would also be getting an MRI.

Hopefully Watson can go this week. The Bucs will miss Godwin, but the Bucs should be okay for a couple of weeks since the team has such a plethora of weapons.

Very happy to hear it’s “mild”. A serious hammy injury could wreck most of his season, and we have big plans that definitely include him.

Amen to that!

The Bucs really need to do something about all these hamstring issues that keep popping up.
Hamstring pulls are usually the result of two things. Lack of hydration or the muscle tightening up and/or not being stretched enough.
Both of these problems can be corrected by monitoring the players during the game which I believe is the trainers and players responsibility.

Hamstrings are definitely an issue with this team. They have been for a long time. Is it conditioning?

I hope he’s back for the Packers game. We’ll definitely need him for that one.
