Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin is this year’s recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award, as voted by his fellow teammates.
Here’s more on the award, from the team’s official release:
The award, named in memory of Ed Block – a humanitarian and former athletic trainer for the Baltimore Colts – is presented annually to one player from each team, as voted on by their teammates. The award recipients symbolize professionalism, strength, dedication, and act as community role models. Each year, the Ed Block Courage Award Foundation honors players who exemplify those traits and display a commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.
Godwin suffered a torn ACL in Week 15 last season, ending his 2021 campaign. Despite such a serious injury, Godwin worked hard to make it back to the starting lineup by Week 1 of the 2022 season.
He then set a single-season franchise record with 110 receptions (playoffs included), and notched the third 1,000-yard season of his career.

The decision by Vice Chancellor Travis Laster allows McDonald's shareholders to proceed to trial to try to prove that David Fairhurst, global chief people officer from 2015 to 2019, breached his oversight duties by allegedly acting in bad faith and ignoring signs of a toxic culture.

Global equity markets skidded on Wednesday as poor corporate results fueled recession fears, as did the ongoing inversion of short- and long-dated Treasury yields – a harbinger of economic downturns.
