The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been slammed with injuries, especially on the offensive side of the ball. But thanks to the mini bye week, some key pieces have returned.
#GoBics RBs LeSean McCoy, Leonard Fournette, WRs Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, WR Justin Watson and WR John Hurst (who was on IR) have returned to practice today.

Chris Godwin’s availability will be crucial on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Bruce Arians’ offense runs through the slot. A player like Godwin can open up the playbook and help other players settle into their roles.
There will be an official injury report out on Wednesday, but expect the Buccaneers to be fully healthy going into week six.

Conflicting reports about Chris Godwin and LeSean McCoy. From what we can decipher, neither participated in the team’s actual practice, but more so worked out on the side with trainers.

Godwin was just working on the side with a trainer from what I saw. McCoy and Fournette on the sidelines, but didn’t look like they would be participating. We won’t really know officially.
