The 2020 season has not been kind to Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin thus far.

He missed the Week 2 victory over the Carolina Panthers due to being in concussion protocol. Now, he could miss some more time according to Tampa Bay Time’s Rick Stroud.

Godwin left Sunday’s 28-10 win over the Denver Broncos in the second half after suffering a hamstring injury. He was able to catch a 10-yard touchdown pass before exiting the contest. He finished by catching five of six targets for 64 yards and the score.

A hamstring injury is not one you can rush back from. Godwin is likely going to miss Week 4 against the Chargers and could possibly miss Week 5 against the Bears as it is a Thursday night game.

Tom Brady chose the Bucs for a reason and a big reason was the outside weapons of Godwin and Mike Evans. The latter also battled a hamstring injury but did not miss any time.

The Bucs will need Godwin to get healthy as soon as possible as they have a tough four-game stretch coming up against the Chargers, Bears, Packers, and Raiders. Godwin had a breakout season last year making the Pro Bowl by racking up 86 catches for 1,333 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games.
