  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Done for season

    Evans (knee) was placed on IR on Friday and will miss the remainder of the season, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Evans started the season on IR and missed the first six weeks due to his bothersome knee before suiting up in Week 7 against Kansas City. His knee evidently didn't feel right in that game, which is why the team has opted to shut Evans down again. Being placed on IR the second time means Evans will miss the remainder of the campaign, so receiving back Jeremy McNichols will go back to working as Derrick Henry's primary backup.

  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Limited by knee issue

    Evans was a limited participant at Thursday's practice due to a knee injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    The 23-year-old made his season debut Week 7 against the Chiefs after missing the first six weeks of the year with the knee injury, and he's now back on the injury report. It's unclear if Evans aggravated that injury or if he's dealing with a new issue, but the fact he was still practicing in some capacity indicates it may not be a serious concern.

  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Eased into debut

    Evans carried the ball twice for seven yards in Sunday's 27-3 win over Kansas City. He added two receptions for 11 yards.

    Evans was activated off injured reserve Saturday and played six offensive snaps. As expected, he worked as a backup to Derrick Henry, though he split second-string duties with Jeremy McNichols. So long as he is healthy, Henry will clearly maintain a heavy workload out of the backfield, though it's unclear whether Evans or McNichols will now serve as his primary backup.

  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Activated off IR

    Evans (knee) was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Evans will now slot in a backfield increasingly dominated by the impossibly successful Derrick Henry. Jeremy McNichols (ankle) has operated as the team's pass-catching back to begin the season, but he's played just 15 offensive snaps combined over the last two weeks and could yield that role to Evans given his struggles as of late.

  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Rejoins practice

    Running backs coach Tony Dews indicated Tuesday that Evans (knee) took part in practice last week, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

    Evans was designated to return from injured reserve last Wednesday and apparently got in some practice immediately. His 21-day window to be evaluated in practice has thus begun, by the end of which the team must decide to either activate him or keep him on injured reserve for the rest of the season. Assuming he returns, Evans figures to join the conversation alongside Jeremy McNichols for backup duties to Derrick Henry.

  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Designated to return from IR

    The Titans designated Evans (knee) for a return from injured reserve Wednesday.

    Tennessee now has a 21-day window to evaluate Evans in practices before deciding whether to add him back to the 53-man roster or stash him on IR for the remainder of the season. Assuming he incurs no setbacks upon returning to practice, the 2020 third-round pick could challenge Jeremy McNichols for the top change-of-pace role behind undisputed top back Derrick Henry as soon as Sunday in Jacksonville.

  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Nearing return to practice

    Coach Mike Vrabel is hopeful that Evans (knee) will be able to return to practice Wednesday, John Glennon of BroadwaySportsMedia.com reports.

    Evans has been on injured reserve since the start of the season due to a knee injury, but he's eligible to return as soon as he's cleared by the team's medical staff. Whether he'll be able to do so for Sunday's Week 5 matchup against Jacksonville remains to be seen, but practicing would be a significant step in his recovery.

  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Lands on IR

    Evans (knee) has been placed on IR by the Titans.

    Evans, who had been dealing with a knee issue, will thus miss at least the first three games of the regular season. Now that he's unavailable to the team, at least early on, Mekhi Sargent's profile in the offense behind undisputed top back Derrick Henry should expand, while Jeremy McNichols remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list. In that context, we wouldn't be surprised to see Tennessee add backfield depth in short order as NFL rosters continue to shuffle in the wake of initial cut-downs.

  • Titans' Darrynton Evans: Misses preseason finale

    Evans (knee) didn't play in Saturday's preseason finale against the Bears, Mike Moraitis of USA Today reports.

    The running back still is bouncing back from a knee issue, and with Brian Hill (undisclosed) now on IR and Jeremy McNichols (undisclosed) on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the team's depth behind starter Derrick Henry currently is taxed. When healthy, Evans profiles as the Titans' No. 2 RB, though it's an assignment that doesn't carry much fantasy utility so long as Henry is available.
