Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Chris Godwin made his first appearance since tearing his ACL against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys. But, it was a short-lived as Godwin only recorded 19 snaps on the night.
That’s because he suffered a hamstring injury after a seven-yard catch and run, causing him to leave the game.
The injury was deemed serious enough to end Godwin’s night, but it remained unclear as to how much time he’ll actually miss.
Unfortunately for the Buccaneers, clarity was provided on Monday when NFL Network‘s Tom Pelissero reported Godwin will likely “miss a few weeks” with the injury.

The good news is Godwin’s reconstructed ACL was not affected, so it looks like the injury is solely hamstring-related.
The Buccaneers will move forward with the likes of Mike Evans, Julio Jones, Russell Gage, and others as their receivers.
