TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without Pro Bowl wide receiver Chris Godwin and running back Leonard Fournette for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers, coach Bruce Arians announced Friday.

Their speedy wideout Scotty Miller‘s status is also in jeopardy due to a hip/groin injury.

“Leonard and Chris will both be out for this ballgame,” Arians said. “We’ll see how Scotty feels tomorrow.”

Godwin suffered the injury on an out route in the third quarter of the Bucs’ 31-17 win over the Denver Broncos last week. He underwent an MRI Monday, revealing a mild hamstring pull. A hamstring injury also forced Godwin to miss the final two games of the season last year, yet he still finished with 1,333 receiving yards — third most in the NFL.

Godwin also missed Week 2 this season with a concussion.
