Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians on Friday said he thinks Pro Bowl wide receiver Chris Godwin will play against the Green Bay Packers after missing two games with a hamstring injury, Jenna Laine of reports.

"I think Godwin's gonna go," Arians said. "Chris practiced the majority of the week and it's the best he's looked in a while. He's still sore, but he was able to get in front of the quarterback and show that he's got what he needs to have for this ballgame. It was good to see him out there because people don't realize how big of a part of our offense he is."

Godwin, who hadn't practiced since suffering the injury in Week 3, leads the Bucs with an 84.6% receiving percentage and has a 27.3% receiving percentage on plays of 20-plus yards. He is primarily used in the slot, with his greatest impact coming on the outside.

His 1,333 receiving yards, in only 14 games, were third in the NFL last season.

In addition to Godwin, Arians said WR Scotty Miller (hip/groin), WR Mike Evans (ankle), CB Carlton Davis (abdominal), safety Jordan Whitehead (knee), RB Leonard Fournette (ankle) and DL Khalil Davis (ankle) will be game-time decisions.
