Having to deal with hamstring injuries, neither Chris Godwin or Mike Evans will be playing in this year’s Pro Bowl.
Evans sustained his injury against the Indianapolis Colts on December 8th, 2019, and was eventually placed on the injured reserve on December,18th ending his season. Mike Evans had a great first season in Bruce Arians’ offensive system catching 67 passes for 1,157 yards and 8 touchdowns.
Although Evans had a great 2019, it was Chris Godwin that caught the eye of everyone. Godwin’s seasons was his best to date. He caught 86 passes for 1,333 yards and 9 touchdowns, which earned him PFF’s highest receiver grade on January the 4th. Godwin finished the season early with a devastating hamstring on December 15th against the Detroit Lions. Head Coach Bruce Arians made it abundantly clear that getting Chris Godwin a contract extension will be a Buccaneer priority. -Per Scott Smith, Senior Writer for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Despite neither being able to play in this Pro Bowl, it’s amazing to see two Buccaneer receivers voted in for the first time in franchise history. However, the Buccaneers will have a representative on the field as Sack Master Shaq Barrett was voted in as well and will be out there having some fun!
Greg Auman of the Athletic was the first to bring everyone the sad news about Godwin and Evans.
Like Mike Evans, Bucs receiver Chris Godwin isn't fully recovered from his hamstring injury and won't be able to play in the Pro Bowl this week in Orlando. Great honor for both, but OLB Shaq Barrett will be lone Buc actually playing on Sunday.
