While no one wants to get their hopes up too much with such a difficult injury, it would be great for the Buccaneers to have Chris Godwin back for the first game of 2022.
Knee injuries might be the worst of the non-life-threatening type. Anyone who has ever torn or tweaked any part of their knee knows this first-hand. The one thing that most of us regular people have in common is that we didn’t have the backing of an NFL team to help us with our injuries, and that is where Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is different.
After tearing his ACL at the end of last season, it looked like Godwin was going to miss part of the 2022 season as he worked on overcoming one of the worst injuries in the sport.
However, it looks like that recovery could be going better for Godwin that most people expected:
Godwin just being available by the start of the season would be nothing short of incredible. Even with all the recent changes to medicine and how guys rehab these injuries, being able to go less than a year later is great news for Godwin and the Bucs.
Whether or not Godwin should play in that game is a different story, but we can cross that bridge when we get there.
As for now, the Buccaneers can probably stop worrying so much about what their depth chart is going to look like with Godwin out and start focusing on rostering supplemental pieces that bring out the most in the top three.
There is obviously still time for any of this news to change in the comings weeks and months as this process takes time, but the Bucs can be hopeful for now that they will have one of their best offensive pieces back for the majority of an important year.
