The Buccaneers haven’t revealed their game statuses quite yet. But it sounds like two of their key offensive players will have a tough time getting on the field for Sunday’s game against the Saints.

In his Friday press conference, head coach Todd Bowles said receiver Chris Godwin “is in play by a small margin, but we’ll see on Sunday. If I had to guess, I’d say he wouldn’t [play].”

As for Donovan Smith, Bowles said the left tackle “will be close. It’ll be hard for him to make it, but we’ll see.”

Godwin, who was already coming back from a torn ACL, injured his hamstring against the Cowboys last week. Smith suffered a hyperextended elbow during the same contest.

Receivers Mike Evans (calf) and Julio Jones (knee) returned to practice on Friday. Their game statuses along with the rest of the Buccaneers will be revealed later in the day.

  1. why would you voluntarily tell your opponent this information ahead of time? unless its a bluff he is helping the defense prepare

  2. Its better for Godwin to heal fully before paying… Mid-season would be a better time..
    Gage should substitute for Godwin just fine!
