Two Receivers Land On Injury Report

September 7th, 2021

This is a mildly troubling.

Today is the equivalent of Friday during normal week with a Sunday game. That means the Bucs had their final practice of the week today with a game just two days away.

Antonio Brown, who had offseason knee surgery, did not practice today. He was listed on the official injury report with a knee injury.

Chris Godwin also debuted on the injury report after a “limited” participation practice because of a quad injury.

Joe’s not concerned about facing the Cowboys. Long term is where Joe’s mind is going, especially for Brown. It’s never a good sign to be entering a season dinged up.

    Hoping this (announcement) is Belichickian in nature.

  2. PassingThru Says:

    Brown tweaked his knee earlier, so perhaps this is more precaution and rest than aggravation of a preexisting condition.

  3. Bojim Says:

    This last minute stuff is troubling.

  4. dls5492 Says:

    The Bucs’ receiving corps is deep. So I am not worried.

  5. Winny Testaverde Says:

    I don’t feel the Bucs are deep enough to absorb the loss of both Godwin & Brown. I have flashbacks of Mickens running for his life vs the Giants last year. Brown is the X Factor…scored twice in the playoffs last year and might be Brady’s favorite receiver. Might be…

  6. SlyPirate Says:

    AB and Godwin are warriors. Played hurt most of the year.

    Plus, Evans, Miller, Johnson, Gronk … we’re okay.

  7. Bird Says:

    Defending their super bowl season

    Opening week vs “americas team”
    Both Get some exposure

    Both AB and Godwin looking for next big payday.

    Both will play. Trust me.

  8. SB~LV Says:

    They’ll both play, Godwin “quad”
    Lower right back quadrant

    The perfectly laid plans are crumbling.
    Call off all bets.
    I know a lot of you guys had this win penciled in as a sure thing.
    Probably had a party when you heard Zach Martin wasn’t gonna play too.

    Get a grip.

    EXTRA, EXTRA. Read all about it. Nothing to see here folks, move along. All is well.

  11. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Just countering the Cowboys and their sudden problems, the ones getting all the pub.

    They both get 100yds and a TD Thurs.

  12. Mike Says:

    Injuries are never a good thing, but the Bucs have a lot of depth at WR, and they can always go with more 2 TE formations if needed, so this is not terribly concerning.

  13. Darin Says:

    Exactly. Let the games begin.

  14. Jason Says:

    Quad doesn’t equal Hammy does it?

  15. PSL Bob Says:

    And this is what I’ve been talking about. Karma. Get excited about opponent’s players unable to play and bam! All of a sudden some of our key players are out. Fortunately our depth, particularly at WR, should carry the day.

  16. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We might not get past game one without being very, very grateful we have Gio Bernard……you see….he’s not just there to be an alternative to elite receivers….he’s there to be a Brady option when those receivers aren’t there.

  17. Biff Barker Says:

    Not surprised about Godwin. He took a big shot in the back in the useless Texans game.

  18. Pickgrin Says:

    Both will play I’m sure.

    Just a procedural listing most likely…..

  19. All lives matter Says:

    I think we’ll probably see Arian’s pacing our stacked positions all season just so we can make it to the end.

  20. DoooshLaRue Says:


    I know, that was a helluva hit he took in the back.

  21. SOEbuc Says:

    Ain’t no big thang. Much trust in TJ if they don’t play so we’ll see. Maybe see a little Darden action?

  22. Anonymous Says:

    This is just the type adversity needed to test the metal of our Super Bowl Champions very early to start the new season…is this a step up to the plate moment or what! Beam me up Scottie ….Go Bucs!

  23. Crickett Baker Says:

    I thought AB’s knee was completely fixed up with the surgery. I was very surprised to see him on the injury list. Isn’t there a timetable on when they can return to a game after being placed on that list?

  24. gp Says:



    Did you make that up yourself?
    I like it!
    Mind if I borrow it sometime (I have no idea when)

  25. Stanglassman Says:

    Godwin quad was injured yesterday by a hit he took on his back two Saturdays again? That makes sense.

  26. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    So long as Brady is playing, we’ll make the playoffs.

  27. Says:

    Johnson in the slot!

  28. Dan Says:

    It would help AB if he also was not nuts

  29. Gilly Gil Says:

    That’s just more tuddys for the Gronkster
