Tom Brady and Tampa Bay Buccaneers was dealt a devastating blow when the MRI revealed all-star receiver Chris Godwin tore his ACL net in an ugly 9-0 loss first New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football. The injury was not initially thought to be as serious, but further examination revealed the true nature of the problem.
Godwin has been playing this season on a franchise card and is set to hit free agent during the season. This is a brutal blow for the Buccaneers as a team right now and for Godwin’s fortunes ahead of freedom. The Buccaneers extender took to Instagram with a message following his injury:
While Godwin did his best to put on a brave face with this post, his wife, Mariah, admits he is devastated by the trauma. TMZ Sports has these quotes:
Mariah said he was heartbroken by it all… writing in a statement, “If you know Chris, you’ll know why this is just gut-wrenching.”
“This man loves his team and loves what he does and LOVES working to be the greatest he can be.”
This is really a big fault for Chris Godwin, who had one of the best seasons of his career when he went down. The Buccaneers star was injured in a controversial hit, with PJ Williams in a weak tackle. Both Brady and head coach Bruce Arians of the Buccaneers speak out about the play.
Tampa Bay will have to go on without one of its stars as the franchise looks set to repeat as the Super Bowl champion. The Buccaneers are 10-4 on the season after losing to the Saints.
