Tampa Bay Buccaneers Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Evans has a hamstring injury that could endanger his accessibility to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
Coach Bruce Arians depicted Evans’ status as everyday. Evans missed the last three games of the 2019 season with a hamstring injury.
“We’ll take it all the way to the wire with him,” Arians said of Evans. “He’s got 1,000 reps already for this game, the whole camp. So it’ll just be a game-time decision. If he doesn’t go Friday, we’ll take it all the way to the ballgame. If he can’t play, other guys will step in and step up.”
On the off chance that Evans can’t play, Justin Watson and Scotty Miller will probably part the outstanding task at hand.
Evans, the Buccaneers’ top wideout, missed practice Tuesday and Wednesday. It doesn’t show up as though he missed whenever during training camp with the injury.
In 2019, Evans turned out to be only the second wide receiver in NFL history, joining Randy Moss, to record 1,000 accepting yards in every one of his initial six seasons. Since 2014, Evans has without any help represented almost 30% of the Buccaneers’ receiving yards (7,260) and receiving touchdowns (48).
