Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin may be back sooner than later according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Appearing on ESPN’s “NFL Live”, Schefter dropped this nugget about the Bucs’ injured wide receiver.
“They are hopeful that he’ll be ready for opening day. So that’s encouraging. They’ll chart him, monitor him, track him during the summer, see how he’s coming along. Obviously [they’re] not going to rush him back. Probably would be surprised if we saw him in any preseason games, and I think the goal will be to see if he’s ready for opening day, which I don’t think is out of the question right now.”
JoeBucsFan.com looked into the validity reporting the following, “Joe is hearing [is] that Godwin has been crushing his rehab and the team is hopeful he’ll be cleared to practice during training camp.”
First and foremost everyone involved wants what’s best for Godwin’s long-term health, so hopefully he doesn’t rush back. But the thought of having Godwin back for the beginning of the season is fantastic news. Especially with that murderers-row of Dallas, New Orleans. Green Bay and Kansas City to start the season.
