Evans secured his only target for 31 yards during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
Evans surprisingly saw as many targets as Tyler Johnson, offensive lineman Joe Haeg, Tanner Hudson and Ronald Jones, but he still found a way to make an impact in Tampa Bay's victory. Evans' one reception served as a game-long catch for the Buccaneers, and he also drew a critical pass interference penalty late in the first half that put the ball at the Chiefs' nine-yard line and set up an eventual one-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Antonio Brown. Despite the relatively quiet finish to his team's title run, Evans and Brady quickly developed a rapport this season, and the seventh-year wideout finished with a solid 70-1,006-13 line over 16 games during the regular season. Assuming Brady returns in 2021, Evans could be in for even better numbers, especially if position mate Chris Godwin departs in free agency.
Evans (knee) practiced fully Wednesday.
The Buccaneers capped Evans' practice reps last week, as they would have done if the team had been facing a normal turnaround for a game. Now that he's gotten some maintenance time, Evans shouldn't face any limitations in the Buccaneers' remaining practices leading up to Sunday's Super Bowl LV matchup with the Chiefs. Meanwhile, Antonio Brown (knee) got back on the practice field in a limited capacity Wednesday, helping Tampa Bay inch closer to full capacity in its receiving corps.
Evans (knee) remained limited Friday at practice.
Although he wasn't a full participant, the Bucs estimate that Evans wouldn't have any injury designation if they had a game to play this Sunday. He should be fine with another week to prepare for the Super Bowl, gearing up to face a solid KC secondary.
Evans (knee) was limited at Thursday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Since picking up a knee injury Week 17, Evans' has had his practice reps capped, but he's still produced, per usual. Through three postseason games, Evans has compiled a 10-173-2 line on 21 targets. The Buccaneers are in the midst of their first of two weeks of preparation for Super Bowl LV, so there's little reason to believe Evans' status against the Chiefs is in question.
Evans (knee) was listed as a limited participant Wednesday's on the Buccaneers' estimated practice report.
Evans has been managing a knee injury since Week 17, but he's still suited up for all three of the Buccaneers' playoff games. During that stretch, he has hauled in 10 of 21 targets for 173 yards and two touchdowns. Elsewhere in the Tampa Bay receiving corps, Antonio Brown wouldn't have practiced Wednesday if the team held a session, and he's expected to remain a spectator for the rest of this week. Tampa Bay will have a full two weeks to get key players healthy for the Feb. 7 Super Bowl LV matchup with the Chiefs, and if Brown is sidelined, Evans could be in line for a few more looks.
Evans secured three of eight targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Buccaneers' 31-26 win over the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
Evans was far from efficient and saw a ball bounce off his outstretched hands in the fourth quarter, resulting in Tom Brady's second interception of the afternoon. However, the multi-time Pro Bowler did contribute a 16-yard scoring grab that opened the Buccaneers' scoring on the day, his second touchdown in as many postseason games. He'lll look to make it a hat trick in that department during a Super Bowl LV matchup versus either the Bills or Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 7.
Evans (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Green Bay, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Evans injured his knee Week 17 but has nonetheless managed to play 84 and 88 percent of Tampa's offensive snaps in two playoff games. He caught six passes for 119 yards in the wild-card round, followed by just one reception for a three-yard touchdown in the divisional round. Antonio Brown's upcoming absence due to a knee injury of his own could push a few more targets toward Evans or Chris Godwin.
Evans (knee) was limited at Thursday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Evans maintained his activity level from Wednesday, when his reps were capped in a walk-through session. Chris Godwin (quadriceps) is in the same boat as Evans, while Antonio Brown (knee) has been unable to practice this week. Even if Evans is unable to put in a full session Friday, it appears as if the Buccaneers are managing his practice reps to make sure he's ready for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Green Bay.
The Buccaneers listed Evans (knee) as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report.
In addition to Evans, wideout Chris Godwin (hip/quadriceps) and running back Ronald Jones (finger/calf) were also labeled as limited. Greg Auman of The Athletic suggests that the trio's listed limitations can be viewed as carryover from last week, when all managed to play through their respective injuries in Sunday's divisional-round win over the Saints. Like last week, expect Evans to eventually enter this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Packers without an injury designation.
Evans brought in one of three targets for a three-yard touchdown in the Buccaneers' 30-20 divisional-round win over the Saints on Sunday.
On an evening when the Buccaneers passing game cooled off significantly, Evans tied a season-low figure in receptions while just exceeding his low-water mark in yards. However, the multi-time Pro Bowler at least made his one reception count, as it allowed Tampa Bay to overcome a 6-3 second-quarter deficit. Evans didn't appear to show any limitations with respect to the hyperextended knee he suffered back in Week 17, and he'll look to bounce back with a much more productive environment in what may be challenging weather at Lambeau Field during next Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
Evans (knee) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's NFC divisional-round matchup against the Saints, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Evans managed a trio of limited practice sessions this week while continuing to recover from a hyperextended left knee sustained Week 17, and Jenna Laine of ESPN reports that he hope to be "closer to 100 percent" in New Orleans. The star wideout was only able to log one limited practice prior to the wild-card win over Washington, in which he gutted out his injury while catching six passes for 119 yards. His increased practice activity this week would seem to reinforce the notion that Evans will be at or near top form versus the Saints.
Evans (knee) was a limited practice participant Thursday, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.
Back-to-back limited practices put Evans ahead of where he was last week. He logged just one limited session leading up to Tampa Bay's win over Washington, ultimately catching six passes for 119 yards while playing 84 percent of defensive snaps. There's little reason to think he'd miss the game against New Orleans this Sunday, hoping to remedy his poor track record against the Saints. Evans has averaged only 51.4 yards per game in 13 career matchups, struggling against top CB Marshon Lattimore the past couple seasons.
Evans (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.
After injuring his left knee in the regular-season finale, Evans wasn't the worse for wear this past Saturday at Washington. While logging a typical 84 percent of the snaps on offense, he turned 10 targets into six catches for 119 yards. The Bucs appear to be managing Evans' reps to kick off prep for the divisional round, but he'll have two more chances to elevate to full participation before the weekend. Notably, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports Evans feels he can be "closer to 100 percent" by Sunday, which is certainly an encouraging indicator considering how well he performed against Washington just six days removed from the initial injury.
Evans (knee) secured six of 10 targets for 119 yards in the Buccaneers' 31-23 wild-card win over Washington on Saturday night.
Six days after suffering an ugly hyperextension, Evans was not only active and playing without restrictions, but thriving as the Buccaneers' leader in receptions and receiving yards. The veteran made a number of impressive catches throughout the contest, and his target tally was second only to that of fellow wideout Chris Godwin's. Evans' 100-yard effort marked his third time eclipsing the century mark in the last four contests dating back to Week 15, and he'll look to continue offering a similar caliber of production in next weekend's divisional-round matchup.
Evans (knee) is listed as active Saturday at Washington.
When Evans' left leg got stuck in the end-zone turf Week 17, the potential for missed time seemed possible, but he progressed throughout the week, culminating in a limited practice Thursday and a listing of questionable for the wild-card round. Both Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network have since forecast that Evans would attempt to play through a knee injury, and indeed the wide receiver will be available to the Buccaneers offense Saturday. Having said that, Evans' workload may be capped to ensure he doesn't suffer a setback, which could result in more reps for Antonio Brown and Scotty Miller opposite Chris Godwin.
Evans (knee) is expected to play in Saturday's wild-card game against Washington, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Bucs likely won't make things official until closer to 8:15 p.m. ET, but it looks as if the star wide receiver is expected to play in the pivotal playoff game. Evans practiced just once this week after injuring his left knee early in the Bucs' Week 17 win over the Falcons.
Evans (knee) intends to play in Saturday's wild-card game in Washington, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Evans officially is listed as questionable after managing just one limited practice Thursday, the result of injuring his left knee Week 17. Coach Bruce Arians told Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site that Evans is slated to be a "game-time decision" but believes the wideout "has a chance" to be available to the offense. Tampa Bay ultimately will make a decision on Evans' status about 90 minutes before Saturday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff.
Evans (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's wild-card game at Washington.
Shortly after achieving his seventh 1,000-yard season in a row this past Sunday, Evans got his leg stuck in the turf while attempting to make a catch in the end zone. He was unable to return to the contest, and while he's participated in a walk-through this week, he wasn't officially listed as anything but a non-participant until Thursday, when he was limited. Per Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site, coach Bruce Arians called Evans a "game-time decision" but also believes the wide receiver "has a chance" to suit up this weekend. Evans' status, one way or another, will be confirmed approximately 90 minutes before Saturday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff.
Coach Bruce Arians indicated that Evans (knee) is a game-time decision for Saturday night's playoff opener against Washington, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
The report notes that Arians thinks that Evans -- who got in some on-field work Thursday -- "has a chance" to play in Saturday's 8:15 p.m. ET contest. To that end, the wideout has been "living in the training room" this week. Look for Evans to approach the wild-card game officially listed as questionable by the Bucs.
Evans (knee) is participating in Thursday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Four days after exiting the Buccaneers' Week 17 win over the Falcons with a hyperextended left knee, Evans was back on the field for the team's final practice ahead of Saturday's wild-card game in Washington. According to Laine, during the open portion of the practice, Evans was spotted going through a dynamic warmup that included squatting and jogging. The Buccaneers will release their final injury report later Thursday, which will reveal the extent of Evans' participation in the closed portion of the practice, while also indicating whether he'll carry a designation into the playoff game. Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times relays that the Buccaneers are optimistic Evans will be able to suit up Saturday, but how his knee responds to Thursday's practice will likely factor heavily into the team's decision on his status.
