Godwin sustained the injury two weeks ago at New Orleans, on a tackle, and missed all but one practice this week coming off the bye. He was able to do some work on Friday, but was limited.
The Athletic first reported Godwin’s status for Sunday.
The Bucs are already without wide receiver Antonio Brown, who has been dealing with an ankle injury since Week 6, and tight end Rob Gronkowski, who suffered cracked ribs and a punctured lung in Week 3.
Cornerback Richard Sherman will return Sunday after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 6.
