A 2014 fourth-round selection by the Jets, Evans spent the 2015 campaign on the Jaguars' practice squad. However, he enters the upcoming season nursing a muscle strain in his lower leg and appears unlikely to log his first professional snap in 2016.
Evans (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Evans hasn't practice since Jul. 31, as he's been dealing with a lower leg muscle strain. He's currently battling for a roster spot, so his return to the field was much needed, as he'll need to impress the coaching staff over the next few weeks. The 25-year-old wide receiver has yet to log action in a regular season game during his career, further exemplifying the uphill battle Evans has to make the final roster.
Evans hasn't practiced since suffering a lower leg muscle strain in practice on Sunday.
Evans is entering his third NFL season and has yet to play in a regular season game. He needed surgery on his shoulder in 2014, costing him his rookie season, and failed to make the Jets roster last season. Now with the Jaguars, Evans is experiencing yet another setback. He's missed the team's last two practices and is still without a timetable to return. In his absence Rasheed Bailey and Jamal Robinson figure to get some extra reps.
