Bucs WR Chris Godwin in Concussion Protocol After Suffering Injury vs. Saints

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers placed wide receiver Chris Godwin in the concussion protocol.

Head coach Bruce Arians told reporters Godwin wasn't showing any symptoms Tuesday and that the Bucs are putting him in the protocol now to be "very, very cautious."

He had absorbed a helmet-to-helmet hit from New Orleans Saints safety D.J. Swearinger in Sunday's 34-23 loss.

Godwin missed time last season because of a hamstring injury he suffered in Week 15 against the Detroit Lions. The Buccaneers ruled him out of their game the following week versus the Houston Texans.
