Godwin entered concussion protocol on Wednesday and was listed as doubtful late in the week. The team downgraded him on Saturday to being out for the game.
Godwin took a helmet-to-helmet hit from D.J. Swearinger during the fourth quarter and left the game. He did not show concussion symptoms Monday or Tuesday but he did on Wednesday, coach Bruce Arians told reporters.
Receiver Scotty Miller and tight end O.J. Howard were the only two other players to finish with more than two catches in Week 1. Miller caught five for 73 yards. Howard had four for 36 yards and caught one of Brady’s two touchdown passes.
It’s the second straight week the Bucs are going into gameday with injury worries for star receivers. Mike Evans didn’t practice until the Friday before Week 1 and was listed as doubtful for the season opener. He caught the other touchdown against the Saints.
