Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is considered doubtful for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, head coach Bruce Arians told reporters Friday, including Greg Auman of The Athletic.

Godwin was placed in concussion protocol Wednesday and was only able to advance to non-contact practice Friday, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

The 2019 Pro Bowler will undergo more tests Saturday and can be upgraded to questionable if the doctors clear him, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Godwin led the Buccaneers with six receptions for 79 yards during their 34-23 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.

The 2017 third-rounder enjoyed his best NFL campaign last year, amassing 86 receptions for 1,333 yards and nine touchdowns.

But it's not all bad for the Buccaneers' wide receiver corps - Mike Evans, who's been battling a hamstring issue this week, has no injury designation on Tampa Bay's latest injury report and will play in Week 2.
