Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Chris Godwin suffered torn ACL in Sunday night's loss to the New Orleans Saints and will miss the remainder of the season.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport initially reported it was just an MCL sprain, but later an MRI showed it was worse than imagined.

Godwin went down early in the game when he got tackled low and was flipped over. It turns out the injury was just about the worst case scenario:

However, if there is any good news for Bucs fans after being shut out at home, the other injuries aren't as bad as they could have been. The injuries to Mike Evans and Leonard Fournette don't appear to be too serious.

Tampa Bay has three regular season games remaining: two against the Carolina Panthers and one against the New York Jets.
