Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin continues to make progress in his recovery from a torn ACL. 

On Tuesday, Godwin took his first reps in seven-on-seven drills. Prior to today's practice, he was participating in individual drills. 

According to Buccaneers reporter JC Allen, Godwin looked "smooth" while running his routes. That's a great sign for the Pro Bowl wideout.  

To the surprise of no one, Buccaneers fans are thrilled about this update on Godwin. 

Godwin was having a career year with the Buccaneers last season. Before suffering a torn ACL, he had 98 receptions for 1,103 yards and five touchdowns. 

The Buccaneers signed Godwin to a three-year, $60 million extension this offseason. 

Godwin's status for Week 1 remains up in the air. If he continues to make progress without suffering any setbacks, he should be able to give it a go on Sept. 11 against the Dallas Cowboys.
