3. Injuries are already mounting up

The last thing you want to see is injuries mounting up, but that’s exactly what has happened to this point.

The Buccaneers placed WR Chris Godwin in concussion protocol and he hasn’t practiced the past couple of days. WR Mike Evans is still battling an injury and it’s clear that it affected him Sunday.

LT Donovan Smith (knee) and S Jordan Whitehead (elbow) have both also experienced injuries. Smith has been limited in practice this week.

All in all, you’re talking about three offensive starters and one defensive starter who are on the injured list currently and there’s a decent chance we don’t see Godwin play this week.
