Fantasy Impact:

It's unclear when Godwin suffered the injury but it's just another disappointment in what's been a rather frustrating season. This is now the third unique injury that will force Godwin off the field and it's not yet known if he will be able to return for the Bucs' Week 9 matchup against the Saints. Coming off a six-catch, 109-yard performance, Scotty Miller should be busier than usual in Godwin's absence this week. If Godwin's absence is extended, the recently-signed Antonio Brown, who is eligible to return after Week 8, could jump into a significant role immediately.
