  • Evans (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Evans appears to have suffered a toe injury during Sunday's loss to the Redskins, and his Week 11 availability is difficult to discern. If the second-year safety is unable to suit up against the Giants this Sunday, expect Isaiah Johnson to receive an increased defensive workload.

  • Evans posted nine tackles (four solo), including a half-tackle for loss, in the Buccaneers' 16-3 loss to the Redskins on Sunday. The starting strong safety has raised his IDP profile significantly over the last four games in particular, racking up 32 stops (20 solo) during that stretch. The impact plays and turnovers are still generally lacking for Evans, who's only got a pair of tackles for loss and has forced just one turnover (an interception) over nine contests. However, based on the sheer amount of completions alone the Bucs give up, the tackle opportunities should continue to be plentiful.

  • Evans recorded eight tackles (five solo) in the Buccaneers' Week 7 overtime win over the Browns. The starting strong safety was part of what was arguably the secondary's best effort of the season. Evans and his defensive backfield mates helped limit Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield to 215 yards passing, with an aggressive pass rush netting five sacks to support the cause. Given his position on the defense, Evans should continue to serve as a solid IDP option. He's now compiled 33 stops (26 solo) on the campaign.

  • Evans, who was credited with two solo tackles and pass breakup in Thursday's 26-24 preseason win over the Dolphins on Thursday, saw time as a slot corner in Saturday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports. The move speaks to both the second-year player's athleticism and the team's lack of depth at the cornerback position at present. Vernon Hargreaves (groin) is facing a multiweek absence, while Brent Grimes has returned to practice but was still held out of team drills Saturday. Evans is listed as the starting free safety in the team's initial depth chart, but he displayed the ball skills during his two years at Texas A&M (11 pass breakups and five interceptions over 25 games) to potentially hang with slot wideouts down the field at the NFL level.

  • Buccaneers' Justin Evans: Could land on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Evans (ankle) could be placed on injured reserve later this week, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. One of several Buccaneers players to exit Monday's 24-21 loss to the Falcons due to injury, Evans looks like he could be dealing with more than a minor ankle issue. With the Buccaneers out of playoff contention, there's little for the team to gain by running its starting safety out for the final two contests of the season at less than full health. If Evans is in fact shut down, Chris Conte and Keith Tandy could pick up more snaps in the secondary.
