The Buccaneers will be without a key part of their passing game on Monday night against the Giants.

Bucs wide receiver Chris Godwin suffered a broken left index finger and had surgery to repair it, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times. He suffered the injury while catching a touchdown pass against the Raiders.

The Bucs hope the injury will heal quickly enough that Godwin could return for the next game, a big NFC South showdown against the Saints.

Godwin has already missed three games this season but is still tied with Mike Evans for the team lead, with 25 catches. When healthy Godwin is playing well this season, catching 86.2 percent of the passes thrown to him for 9.6 yards per target.

  2. Injury bug can derail a team. Can’t blame them for wanting more depth including some unruly character.

  3. Oh brother. Can they go one damn game without one of those two missing time? This goes back a full year now. What’s it gonna be next time? Think of what the offense can be if those two were ever 100%. This is exactly why they signed Antonio Brown

    League wise nobody cares bout your teams injury and As a 9ER fan, I for sure don’t care bout your teams injuries.

    We’re missing 7 starters on defense, 3 starters on offense and 3 key backups. Save that for your local buc fan talk radio

    My goodness. One of the greatest chokejobs in sports history was by him in sb 42, but you were probably in diapers.

    Learn the game.

    “stats are for losers” – bb

    exactly

    Brady has been obsessed over Manning for so long, he’s willing to blow sbs chasing stats all while being rope a doped by a DC who knows that.

    It will happen again, too, and it will be glorious. Once the ego goes, it goes.

  6. Speaking of injury, can people give Brady some credit for being so durable? Other than missing practically the entire 2008 season for the injured knee, he has started all games (minus the four suspended games) since he became the starter in 2001… TWENTY years of unrelenting production to play a position in a violent sport that the defenders want to tear his head off in every snap. He also said the record he is most envious of is Brett Favre’s consecutive starts. That tells you how much he values being available to his team. The guy is a grinder.

    ——————————————————————————————Agreed, Niners have missed stretches with QB, RB1 and RB2, WR1, CB1, CB1, CB1 and CB2, and All-Pro DE Bosa, and we are supposed to feel bad for Bucs because sometimes 1 of their WRs is out? Cry me a river.

  8. People say he lost arm strength but damn Brady doing his Favre impression out here, breaking fingers with the fastball lol.

    But on a serious note, I think he broke it during the flip after the catch, kind of used his finger during the flip/roll. Sucks to see but thankfully it’s nothing long term, with how Scotty and Gronk are looking, and with AB coming, I say give Mike and Chris the rest they need have those 2 ready for the Saints game and after.

    Hmm…

    Who’s the coach that decided to go for 4th & 13 instead of a field goal in a points depraved game?

    Who’s the coach that built a historically bad defense ten years later in SB-52?

    Who’s the coach in 2016 AFCCG that decided to pass on short field goal attempts twice while trailing by eight in the fourth quarter?

  10. Hey T6

    Why so much hatred for Brady and his “ego”……..Like BB doesn’t have an ego? We still don’t know why Malcolm Butler didn’t play in the SB. Bill has the biggest ego of all.

  11. Wow if only Brady weren’t so obsessed with Manning’s stats, he would have 10 super bowl titles and gone to 15 Super Bowls!

    People are incredible with the insults they come up with Brady. This one doesn’t even make any sense.

    Brady did leave the field with 2:42 left on the clock in the 4th. The D you love to talk about gave up a touchdown with 35 seconds left to lose. Samuel could have sealed the game but the ball went right through his hands. Poor Ty. You just made Brady’s situation look better in that game. He did what he needed to do to win and the Pats D blew it. The D giving up 14 4th quarter points is shameful.

    Don’t in silt teenagers born around that time. They are way smarter than you.

    You must have missed the part where Brady played terribly for the first 3 quarters of the game.

You’re on a Bucs related article and you’re bringing up the 49ers. You’re projecting – enjoy more national coverage on the Bucs, it’s not going away anytime soon. The Bucs will be top of mind on every sports show, every week, every day until you get nightmares . Enjoy finishing 3rd in your division cutie pie

    You also missed the part when I said he did enough to win the game. Touchdown to Moss with 2:42 left in the game to take the lead. In all 3 SB losses Brady lead the team take take the lead late in the 4th and the D gave up TDs to lose in each game.

    Catching passes from Brady can be hazardous to your health.

    Finally, a compliment. He absolutely does still sling it.

    Great observation by one of the most astute observers on this site.
