Hamstring Injury For Chris Godwin

September 11th, 2022

Joe has no great update here, but Joe doesn’t want anyone freaking out and not savoring tonight’s glorious victory in Dallas.

Chris Godwin got the start tonight just eight months and a week or so after major knee surgery (ACL). The Bucs went right to Godwin and he rumbled for 24 yards. What a heroic moment it was.

Godwin was looking sharp in his first live action (including practice) since his December injury. But Godwin left the game after an awkward looking step or two near the Bucs’ sideline. He did not return to the game and, officially, his night ended with a hamstring injury. Joe’s been assured it’s not Godwin’s knee.

Godwin finished with 3 catches for 35 yards on three targets.

Hamstrings can linger and be tricky. It’s the last thing Godwin needed, but it feels like the Bucs caught a break after watching Godwin limp off the field.

    Glad it’s just the hamstring. If he has to rest a couple weeks, so be it.

  2. David Says:

    Whoa. Ligament damage. DAK out several weeks, needs surgery on his hand.

    Wow. The cow pokes had a horrendous night

  3. Beeej Says:

    The ONLY Buc receiver on my fantasy team…yup

  4. August 1976 Buc Says:

    As good as Godwin is, now another season and he is hurt again. We may never get to see what Chris could be. Year after year, he gets hurt and misses games. Sad, he is a great talent.

    GO BUCS!!!!

  5. Reddington Neck Shores Says:

    lucky lucky that was an awkward bend on the grab and that knee just isn’t as strong as it used to be

  6. Cometowin2 Says:

    One of my favorite Bucs of all time! Been rooting for the Bucs since 1977. Pray it’s just a minor thing.

    Go Chris! Go Bucs!

  7. Rod Munch Says:

    I thought Godwin looked off from the beginning, like he was playing tentatively. But so did Julio, although he did catch some big passes. Watching the WRs, they look so fragile. I’m hoping that’s just me having PTSD from watching the WRs get injured every year for years and years now.

  8. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Julio looked fantastic……I think we can do well with Julio & Gage until Godwin comes back……
    I was also impressed with Hainsey & Goedeke…..

  9. geno711 Says:

    Its football.

    Injuries happen.

    TJ Watt, Najee Harris, Eli Mitchell Trent McDuffie, Kennan Allen, Dak out several weeks, etc.

  10. BucsBro Says:

    Dak Prescott hand injury that needs surgery.

    Get well soon, Chris.

  11. Jack Sparrow Says:

    Put Godwin in IR and let Brady call Edellman

  12. Jeff Says:

    This will give Godwin the additional 4 weeks he needed to recover the ACL. Bucs got lucky here

  13. cmurda Says:

    As good a news as one could hope with #14. He looked good. He’ll be fine as the Bucs play it cautious.

  14. Rod Munch Says:

    For what it’s worth, it looked like a minor hamstring issue, he might be back pretty quick. It wasn’t like he had a major limp or went down, he just sort of lightly limped back to the bench. Evans normally would always have a hamstring issue late in camp and was always available for week 1, so its possible Godwin doesn’t miss much time, if any.

  15. CJEJ Says:

    I hope these receivers and DBs are getting their Nordic Hamstring Curls in to protect those hamstrings. The frequency of the receiver hamstring injuries makes think otherwise though.

  16. captivajim Says:

    very fortunate not the knee, that was an awkward turn.. good time for him to continue knee rehab ..

  17. A Says:

    The good thing is that he got in some work…got some confidence playing on that knee…kind of makes sense he’d hurt his hammy…isn’t that a Bucs Wr rite of passage?

  18. Miller5252 Says:

    I’m waiting for Joe’s story on donut Lenny. Keeps saying he ain’t ready and too big! He was wrecking everyone tonight!

  19. firethecannons Says:

    just as soon see CG14 sit out the Saints game anyway get the other guys more involved

  20. Miller5252 Says:

    *everyone keeps saying

    Not the Joes, I wrote that up wrong

  21. swashbucklin Says:

    I’m more worried about Donovan Smith. I don’t want the Bucs having to play Josh Wells any more than necessary

  22. SPARKY Says:

    Great win. What is really impressive is our strength, the passing game, actually never got in rythem. The O-line and Lenny were great in the run game. The defense was great, and the special teams even looked good. But, am I the only one who gets nervous every time one of our receivers gets tackled? Everyone of them act like they are hurt after every catch. We need all the receivers we can keep. And Dardon over Miller? I can run out of bounce on the punts if that’s what they want.

  23. Buccobill99 Says:

    Jeff the expert back from hiding whats your “source” saying now

  24. SB Says:

    Sorry, it was Brady’s fault. He was off today big time. That throw was in front of his shoelaces but Godwins’ heart made him dive for it.

  25. Buccos Says:

    Wells had a good game. No drop off from Donny. Goedeke and Hainsey were awesome. They will be fixtures for years. Along with Wirfs. I feel great about the future of our O-line

  26. Sorryjackchuckiesback Says:

    He looked back as he got to the sideline and looked like he said “I’m alright” … Hopefully just held him out for safety reasons!

  27. Oxycondoms Says:

    Julio looks injured after each play , gage not much of an impact . Wr position may not be as fruitful as thought. Nothing from the tight ends in the pass offense

  28. Destinjohnny Says:

    Way to early to come back

  29. Coburn Says:

    Couldn’t help on all the deep shots to perriman wondering if it was miller maybe him and brady would have connected on a couple. Maybe he really isn’t the same guy anymore though.

  30. Bucsfan13 Says:

    @SB Are you really blaming Brady for that CG injury? Low throws happen all the time. How many players have injured their hamstring in the process? Brady was off and can definitely better but he did complete 66% of his passes. He only had one egregious mistake, and that was the pick. He absolutely cannot make that mistake against the Saints.The Falcons settled for FGs and look at the outcome. We can’t do the same against the Saints.

    Brady has turned it over too much against the Saints, and most of those throws have come against the middle. That’s a dangerous area for QBs. That’s why Rodgers rarely throws passes in the middle of the field.

    We do need to give credit to the Dallas D. They are not bums, and had a top 5 defense last year. I will say im really nervous about the Saints.

    Miller should’ve been activated. I believe Perriman was in because he’s a better blocker. The Bucs game plan was to run it.

  31. Bojim Says:

    They’ll get the passing game going. New people all over the offense. Why didn’t they make Godwin sit out a couple more weeks!!

  32. teacherman777 Says:

    He should have waited until week 4.

    I don’t think he needed to play last night.

  33. orlbucfan Says:

    Let CD14 sit and rest the hamstring. I taped the game and will watch it especially the defense. I still don’t get the Falcons letting Julio go??? He’s getting long in the tooth, but was it about $$?

  34. Brandon Says:

    Hamstring issues following ACL recovery is very common. Hopefully it was just a minor pull and a major problem.

  35. Bucschamp Says:

    Sit him. Saints play dirty don’t risk it

  36. Redeemer Says:

    Brandon, hamstring injuries are common, if you come back too early. I don’t care if he was medically cleared or not, he should not have been out there. Hopefully it doesn’t linger all season, as hamstrings have a tendency to.
