  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Zero touches

    Evans was held without a carry or catch in Sunday's win over the Titans.

    More importantly, teammate Trayveon Williams did contribute offensively, with two carries and a catch. Evans also committed a bad penalty on a "pick" play in the first quarter, wiping out a big Tee Higgins catch-and-run.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Suiting up Sunday

    Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said Evans (knee) is good to go for Sunday's game against the Titans, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Evans will return to the field for the first time since Week 9, with his knee injury keeping him sidelined for the Bengals' last two games. Though he's seen most of his work on special teams this season, Evans could have more of a role on offense in Week 12 while top back Joe Mixon (concussion) is sidelined. Samaje Perine is slated to pick up the start, while Evans could serve as the primary change-of-pace option behind him. The Bengals also have Trayveon Williams on hand for backfield depth, though he's more likely to be deployed as a runner than a pass catcher.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Listed as full participant

    Evans (knee) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's practice report, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Evans missed last week's win over the Steelers due to a knee injury and was limited at practice Wednesday, but he appears to be back to full health ahead of Sunday's game in Tennessee. Joe Mixon is in the league's concussion protocol, so it's possible Evans will take on a starting role in Week 12.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Logs limited practice Wednesday

    Evans (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at Tennessee, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    With regular starting running back Joe Mixon in concussion protocol, Evans could be in line to serve as Cincinnati's primary backup in Week 12, but he'll need to make it onto the field himself first. Getting onto the practice field Wednesday is a good start, though a full session Thursday or Friday would help to solidify his status ahead of Sunday.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Won't play Week 11

    Evans (knee) has been ruled inactive ahead of Sunday's game against the Steelers, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Evans was considered questionable to play against Pittsburgh after injuring the PCL in his right knee against Carolina in Week 9. While he had some extra time to recover coming off the Bengals' Week 10 bye, he'll ultimately be sidelined until at least the team's next contest against Tennessee on Sunday, Nov. 27. With Evans out, expect Trayveon Williams to serve as Cincinnati's third-string running back while Trent Taylor handles kick-return duties.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Iffy for Sunday

    Evans (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Evans sustained a knee injury during Cincinnati's Week 9 win over the Panthers, but he was ultimately given some extra time to recover with the team's Week 10 bye. The 25-year-old practiced in a limited fashion in each of the Bengals' sessions heading into Sunday's contest versus Pittsburgh, but if he's eventually ruled out this weekend, Trent Taylor would be the likely candidate to handle kick returns.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Limited Wednesday

    Evans (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

    Evans left the team's Week 9 matchup against Carolina due to a knee injury and was considered week-to-week after being diagnosed with a PCL injury. Cincinnati's Week 10 bye appears to have been beneficial for the second-year return man, but he'll likely have to log at least one full participation over the next two days to be cleared for Sunday's matchup against Pittsburgh.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Week-to-week with PCL issue

    Evans is considered week-to-week after suffering a PCL injury during Sunday's win over the Panthers, Ben Baby of reports.

    Evans departed Sunday's matchup versus Carolina with an apparent knee injury, after he logged just one offensive snap and four special-teams opportunities in the contest. If the second-year pro is unable to gain medical clearance before Cincinnati's Week 11 game against Pittsburgh, then Trent Taylor appears next in line to handle kick returns.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Suffers injury Sunday

    Evans was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Panthers with a right knee injury.

    Evans appears to have sustained a significant injury at some point during the first half of this contest, though the exact nature of this issue is still unclear. The second-year running back has yet to record a rush in 2022, though he's served as the Bengals' primary kick returner this season. With Evans out, Trent Taylor should be next in line to handle kickoffs for Cincinnati. The running back's next opportunity to play will come Nov. 20 against the Steelers.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Minimal role continues

    Evans caught one pass for four yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.

    Evans is still looking for his first carry of the season, and he managed only two offensive snaps in this one. It'll take an injury to either Joe Mixon or Samaje Perine before Evans has a chance at a meaningful offensive role.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Relegated to special teams

    Evans didn't log a single offensive snap in the Bengals' 23-20 overtime loss to the Steelers on Sunday.

    All 21 of Evans' snaps came on special teams, an indication that he's clearly behind Samaje Perine (23 offensive snaps) as Joe Mixon's backup.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Struggles in run game continue

    Evans rushed five times for 10 yards and caught both of his targets for nine yards in Saturday's 16-7 preseason win over the Rams.

    Evans started once again with Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine continuing to sit, but the second-year running back struggled once again on the ground. Evans finishes the preseason with just 10 rushing yards on 18 attempts, so his contributions in the regular season will likely be limited to special teams and passing situations on offense.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Stuck in mud in run game

    Evans rushed five times for three yards and caught all three of his targets for seven yards in Sunday's 25-22 preseason loss to the Giants. He also had a 73-yard kickoff return.

    Evans got the start at running back with Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine both taking the night off, but the second-year pro out of Michigan didn't make much of an impact offensively. With a total of zero rushing yards on 13 attempts, Evans isn't making much of a case to supplant Perine as Mixon's primary backup, but Evans' ability to contribute on special teams makes him a lock for the Bengals' roster. Evans showed off his return skills on his lone attempt in this one, setting up a second quarter Evan McPherson field goal by getting the ball all the way down to the Giants' 24-yard line.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Poor effort Friday

    Evans carried the ball eight times for minus-three yards and caught his only target for nine yards in Friday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

    Getting the start in the backfield with both Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine held out, Evans had an absolutely awful showing as a lead back. The second-year player out of Michigan averaged 4.5 yards per carry as a rookie while flashing some receiving skills, but performances like this could make it tough for Evans to even hang onto the No. 3 spot on the depth chart ahead of Trayveon Williams.

  • Bengals' Chris Evans: Still behind Perine

    Evans remains behind Samaje Perine in the battle to be Joe Mixon's backup, Ben Baby of reports. Speaking of Perine, Bengals coach Zac Taylor said: "He's certainly got a leg up right now in that battle, but that's what training camp is for. Plenty of times, guys step up and have huge growth. We'll see where it goes."

    This tracks with how Perine was used ahead of Evans last season. Evans still has pass-catching upside, but he needs to impress the coaching staff more in all phases of the game to be next in line behind Mixon.
