The Tampa Buccaneers and quarterback Tom Brady could be getting a tough break to its receiving core on Sunday’s game

Already the team will be without Chris Godwin, who was declared out by the team after missing three straight practices.

Godwin suffered a hamstring injury in last Sunday’s win against the Dallas Cowboys.

But things can get worse, as there are four receivers who have questionable tags for this Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

This includes other big names in Mike Evans (calf) and Julio Jones (knee), as well as Russell Gage (hamstring) and Breshad Perriman (knee).

The good news is all four receivers practiced on Friday.

However, it was only on a limited basis.

It’s possible that all four or some of them play – but the question is how effective they will be.

Additionally, running back Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs (abdomen) are listed as questionable.

They both went through Friday’s practice on a limited basis.

For the Saints, running back Alvin Kamara is questionable with a knee injury and starting quarterback Jameis Winston is questionable with a back injury.

Winston was limited at Friday’s practice while Kamara did not participate.

For both the division rivals, Sunday’s game will be the first meeting this season between the two teams.   

They are set to meet again in December in Tampa Bay.

Both teams are 1-0 to start the year, meaning Sunday’s game will decide which gets the early first-place lead in the NFC South.

Sunday’s game will take place at Caesars Superdome at 1 p.m. ET.

The game can be watched on Fox.

The Buccaneers are a 2.5-point favorite to win.
