  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin still facing hurdles    Fri Sep 18, 12:59 PM

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (concussion) practiced Friday, Sept. 18, but still has not cleared the league's concussion protocol and will be listed as doubtful for the Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers. Godwin is scheduled to go through more tests tomorrow and if doctors clear him then, he will be upgraded to questionable.

Footballguys view: Set your lineups without Godwin this week. Scotty Miller is a good WR3/Flex if Godwin is indeed out for Week 2.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans' routes were limited    Thu Sep 17, 11:40 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans' (hamstring) routes were limited in Week 1 as head coach Bruce Arians said 'we were careful how many times we sent him downfield.'

Footballguys view: Evans was out there last week but didn't quite look like himself. He should be even better this week. In fact, Evans might be in for a big week against the Panthers defense on Sunday. With his injury, consider Evans a WR2 with upside in Week 2.

  Buccaneers | Chris Godwin remains idle    Thu Sep 17, 11:39 AM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol Thursday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Bruce Arians said the Bucs are going to be very cautious with Godwin. Reports are speculating that Godwin might miss not only Sunday's game against the Panthers but perhaps even more time after that. Stay tuned and get ready to keep Godwin on your bench. Without him in Week 2, Mike Evans and Scotty Miller would get a large target share against the Panthers.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: Evans played in Week 1 and he didn't look quite like himself. The team should limit him while he still deals with this hamstring injury. So long as there is no setback, Evans should be out there for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Scott Miller is likely to start in Evans place, but he's only a long shot to hit. The team could use a lot more two tight sets with Evans out.

  Buccaneers | Mike Evans likely a GTD    Fri Sep 11, 01:34 PM

Updating a previous report, the status of Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) likely will be decided before kickoff Sunday, Sept. 13, head coach Bruce Arians said Friday following practice. 'He (Evens) did some individual stuff today,' Arians said. We'll see if he's sore tomorrow. It'll probably be a game-time decision.'

Footballguys view: Evans is best left on your bench unless you don't have any viable options behind him. Even if he plays, it's a late start that will limit your hedge options if you wait, and he'll face Marshon Lattimore. Chris Godwin could get more targets if Evans is out, and Scotty Miller would likely take his place in the pass offense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) on Thursday, Sept. 10, did not participate in the portion of practice open to the media.

Footballguys view: Evans is going to be a game-time decision for Week 1. We'll have to see if he practices Friday but things are not trending in the right direction for the veteran receiver. This Buccaneers/Saints matchup in Week 1 could have a ton of points scored but we are unlikely to know Evans status until perhaps right before kickoff.

  Buccaneers | Leonard Fournette to see a fair amount of work    Tue Sep 8, 01:09 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Leonard Fournette will have 'a solid role' in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints, according to head coach Bruce Arians.'He's a very bright guy. He picked it up pretty quick today. Obviously he can't do everything, but he'll have a solid role in the plan for the week,' Arians said.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. Fournette is not yet fully up to speed in what the Buccaneers do on offense but he's been with them long enough to get some limited work as a runner. Ronald Jones is still the starter and the lead back for the Bucs even when Fournette is more well-versed in what they do.

  Buccaneers | Josh Rosen joins PS    Sun Sep 6, 01:51 PM

Free-agent QB Josh Rosen (Dolphins) was signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad Sunday, Sept. 6, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Rosen was a top-10 pick in the 2018 NFL draft and he's got natural skill as a passer. However, he's now failed to impress with two teams and is on his third team in three seasons. Rosen was working hard with the Dolphins according to reports, but the writing was on the wall when the team selected potential franchise quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft. We'll see if learning from Tom Brady can help Rosen jump-start his career.
