Buccaneers’ Chris Godwin (finger) could be facing multi-game absence
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin (finger) could be facing a multi-week absence, per head coach Bruce Arians.
“I think it's very optimistic that he'll be back in a week,” Arians said of Godwin. “But it could be possible. We don't really know how long but yeah, so that's why we have the insurance policy.” Godwin has already been ruled out for Week 8 against the New York Giants on Monday night due to a broken left index finger he suffered last game. Mike Evans has benefitted the most when Godwin has been sidelined this season. Scotty Miller, Tyler Johnson, Justin Watson, and Rob Gronkowski could all see additional targets on Monday in a plus matchup against the Giants.
Godwin leads the Buccaneers with 7.3 targets per game. Mike Evans has averaged 21.2 PPR points with a 22.8 percent target share in three games without Chris Godwin this year, compared to just 7.3 PPR points and an 8.8 percent target share in four games with Godwin. The Giants have the No. 28 pass defense in numberFire's advanced team rankings.
