The 2-1 Buccaneers host the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday but will do so without a pair of offensive standouts.
According to several outlets, the Bucs will be without wide receiver Chris Godwin (hamstring) and running back Leonard Fournette (ankle) when they take on a Chargers team all-too-familiar with dealing with the injury bug.
Final injury update from Bruce Arians — WR Chris Godwin and RB Leonard Fournette won’t play Sunday against Chargers. CB Sean Murphy-Bunting practiced in full today and is good to go, wait-and-see on WR Scotty Miller.

Godwin will miss his second game of the season after dealing with a hamstring injury during the Bucs win over the Broncos. He missed Week 2 against the Panthers with a concussion. Before leaving the game against Denver, Godwin hauled in five passes for 64 yards and a touchdown. Depending on his own health, Scotty Miller could be the target beneficiary from a Godwin-less Bucs offense.

After a 12-rush, 103-yard, and two-touchdown performance in Week 2 against the Panthers, Fournette was limited to just 15 yards on seven carries and just two receiving yards on two receptions. The former Jag missed practice this week with an ankle injury suffered in the win. Ronald Jones will likely see the bulk of the carries in Fournette’s absence and a Ke’Shawn Vaughn appearance isn’t completely out of the question.
