The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' star-studded offense hasn't had much time to build chemistry this season, with either Chris Godwin or Leonard Fournette out for four of the team's seven games. That's going to continue after Godwin underwent finger surgery, but it's not all bad news for the Bucs.

Originally expected to miss at least a month, Godwin has a chance to end up missing just one game — a relatively easy Week 8 matchup against the New York Giants.

Now, Tampa may not want to rush their star wideout back if he's not 100% for their Week 9 matchup against the New Orleans Saints, but the fact that he's already considered 50-50 for that game is a great sign, suggesting he's all but a lock to return in Week 10 at the latest.

Tom Brady threw for 369 yards and 4 touchdowns with Godwin back on the field in Week 7, and Bucs fans have to be excited that the offense is set to be back at full strength sooner than expected.
