Evans is expected to start at linebacker for a second consecutive week Sunday against the Eagles, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.
Evans is slated to draw his second start as a rookie next to Wesley Woodyard at inside linebacker, while Will Compton and Jayon Brown provide additional depth.
Evans (hamstring) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Evans was held out of Tennessee's season opening loss against the Dolphins, but appears to have recovered from the lingering hamstring issue that sidelined him. While it remains unknown whether Evans will suit up against the Texans on Sunday, the rookie seems to have a chance of making his regular-season debut in Week 2.
Evans has been battling an undisclosed injury for nearly a month now, and while he was able to be a limited participant in practice this week, the Titans will hold him out for Week 1. There's still plenty of unknown surrounding Evans' status, but the rookie will have to wait at least another week before making his regular season debut.
Evans (undisclosed) participated in Monday's practice, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
There was never much concern surrounding whatever injury Evans was dealing with, as he was expected to be ready for Week 1. A return to practice Monday essentially confirms that, but the Titans will likely continue to monitor Evans' status closely over the next couple of weeks.
Evans (undisclosed) expects to be ready for the season opener, John Glennon of The Athletic Nashville reports.
Evans also clarified that his leg is not the issue holding him back from practice. The 2018 first-rounder was able to practice in limited fashion last week before being shut down completely, and it's unclear whether or not Evans' removal from team drills was indicative of a serious setback. It's highly unlikely that Evans plays in this Thursday's preseason game against the Vikings, so expect updates on his status as Week 1 approaches.
