  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Minor hamstring injury confirmed

    Evans (hamstring) is considered day-to-day and should be able to play soon, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    This is a gigantic sigh of relief for fantasy managers and the Bucs as Evans' hamstring injury could have been far more serious. The big-bodied target has a long history with hamstring issues, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the veteran eased back into training camp. Still, it seems all but certain at this point that Evans' regular-season status shouldn't be impacted by this particular injury.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Exits with likely leg injury

    Evans left Friday's practice with an apparent leg injury, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Evans left early on the same day Chris Godwin (ACL) made his first practice appearance since December. Initial reports don't make it sound overly serious, but this is obviously something to keep an eye on with Evans going in the second or third round of most fantasy drafts. He's been TD-dependent since Tom Brady joined the Bucs, and while there was some thought his volume could skyrocket this year, Evans now has solid target competition with Godwin doing well in his rehab and Julio Jones signing up for the superteam. Even so, Evans has eight straight 1,000-yard season to start his career, and he remains an annual candidate to lead the league in TD catches (though he's never actually done it, despite four seasons with a dozen or more).

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Hamstring injury confirmed

    Evans is tending to a hamstring injury that he sustained at Friday's practice, per NFL reporter Jordan Schultz.

    On the same day in which Chris Godwin made his first appearance at practice since suffering a torn ACL back on Dec. 19, Evans made an early exit with a leg issue. It since has been clarified to be to Evans' hamstring, but Schultz reports that it's "minor." Due to his long history of hamstring concerns, there's a good chance the Buccaneers will take the utmost caution with the ninth-year pro and allow him to return to 100 percent before clearing him for on-field work.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Evans: Likely dealing with hammy injury

    Coach Todd Bowles said Evans may have "tweaked" a hamstring prior to his early departure from Friday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Evans left early on the same day Chris Godwin (ACL) made his first practice appearance since December. For someone who has missed only seven games across eight NFL seasons, Evans has a surprising lengthy history of hamstring injuries, including one in late 2019 that caused him to miss the final three weeks. Apart from that, he's usually recovered from his hamstring troubles in fairly short order, often putting up big numbers even if he's listed on the injury report. He missed Week 16 with a hamstring injury last year, then erupted for 372 yards and five TDs over the following four games, including playoffs. If this hamstring injury ends up being more serious, the Bucs have Russell Gage and Julio Jones on hand to fill the gap.
