Not only do the Buccaneers expect newly signed wide receiver, Antonio Brown to make his debut Sunday against the Saints but they are also anticipating Chris Godwin’s return to the field as well.
After missing last week’s win over the Giants following surgery on a fractured finger, head coach Bruce Arians says they expect Godwin to be good to go after catching passes for the first time since the procedure on October 27th.
Bruce Arians on Chris Godwin’s progress: “We know what he brings. We’ll see how sore it is tomorrow. He caught the ball fine. … I would anticipate him probably playing.”

The last time Godwin was on the field was during the Bucs 45-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders where he hauled in nine passes for 88 yards and a touchdown. Prior to that, Godwin played in just three of the team’s first six games as he has dealt with various ailments. This, in addition to Mike Evans’ health (and a little influence from Tom Brady), made the Brown signing more of a necessity as opposed to a luxury.
