A decimated wide receiving corps led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to drop their first game of the season in Week 3. This group will be immediately improved with Mike Evans returning from his suspension, but it's unclear how many injured wideouts will be joining him for a Sunday Night Football clash with the Kansas City Chiefs.

On Friday, head coach Todd Bowles provided updates on veteran Chris Godwin and Julio Jones.

After getting in limited practices ahead of Week 4, Bowles said Godwin and Jones are both game-time decisions. The pair appears to be trending in the right direction since they were able to work out in some capacity, but Sunday will provide a more definitive answer

Both Godwin and Jones suited up in the season opener, but they've been on the shelf since. Godwin departed at the end of the first half with a hamstring injury that has sidelined him for the past two games. Jones, meanwhile, is dealing a partially torn PCL that he's attempting to play through without getting surgery.

It sounds like Jones is a decent bet to suit up in Week 4, but he has to avoid any setbacks in order to face Kansas City.

Hopefully at least one of the wideouts is healthy enough to play on Sunday, especially with fellow WR Breshad Perriman listed as doubtful due to a knee/hamstring issue.

Despite potentially be shorthanded, NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook currently peg the Bucs as 1-point favorites ahead of this Week 4 showdown.
