Evans (hamstring) won't carry an injury tag into Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Evans was unavailable last week against the Texans. He'll return to the lineup for the season finale, but he's not expected to upgrade from a special-teams role.
Evans (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Houston, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.
Evans has mainly worked with the special teams unit this season, but he won't be available for Sunday's Week 16 contest. His last chance to play during the regular season will be Jan. 3 against the Ravens.
The Bengals activated Evans from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesady, Geoff Hobson of the team's official site reports.
Evans was placed on the list because he came into close contact with an infected person, but he's turned in negative tests to gain clearance. Evans will likely only assume a special teams role if he suits up in Sunday's game against the Steelers.
The Bengals placed Evans on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Evans has either tested positive for the virus or come into close contact with an infected person. The Bengals are on bye Week 9, but Evans' status for Week 10 against the Steelers is up in the air.
Evans (hamstring) wasn't on the team's injury report Wednesday.
Evans had been dealing with the hamstring injury during the late stages of training camp but appears ready to return. Now healthy, the Oklahoma product is expected to handle a role primarily on special teams for 2020.
Evans (hamstring) is not participating in Sunday's scrimmage, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.
Evans was labeled week-to-week due to hamstring injury Aug. 25, so it's unsurprising to see that he's still sidelined. The special-teams ace could still have a shot at suiting up against the Chargers during the season opener Sept. 13.
Evans is considered week-to-week with a hamstring injury, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.
With less than three weeks until the season opener, Evans' injury could force him to miss his first game since 2018. He rarely plays on defense behind Josh Bynes, but Evans plays nearly every special-teams snap.
Evans didn't play a single snap on defense in their Week 1 loss to the Seahawks, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.
The takeaway here is that new defensive coordinator Lou Anarumos is moving away from the team's former 4-3 front, instead mostly using a modified 3-4 or even a 5-2, with the only two linebackers getting regular playing time being Preston Brown and Nick Vigil. Anarumos is trying not to force weaker linebackers like Evans or rookie Germaine Pratt out there if he can help it.
Evans (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Evans didn't practice the last two weeks and will finish 2018 missing the final two games of the season. The Bengals' desperate injury situation forces the team to put him on injured reserve, rather than simply ruling him out. Hardy Nickerson and Nick Vigil should continue to dominate the snaps at linebacker Sunday at Pittsburgh.
Evans (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Evans sat out last week's loss to the Browns and was a non-participant in practice Wednesday and Thursday. The second-year pro is trending towards sitting out Week 17, in which case Vincent Rey would slot into the starting lineup versus Pittsburgh.
Evans (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
Evans suffered the injury in last Sunday's win over the Raiders and was unable to practice this week. Vincent Rey stepped in at weak-side linebacker for the Bengals last week and should do so again Sunday at Cleveland.
Evans (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Evans exited Sunday's win over the Raiders after sustaining an ankle injury, and remains sidelined during Cincinnati's first practice of the week. It remains to be seen whether the second-year linebacker will recover in time to suit up against the Browns in Week 16. If Evans were to miss any time, expect Vincent Rey to draw the start at weakside linebacker.
Evans won't return to Sunday's game against the Raiders after sustaining a left ankle injury.
Evans sustained the injury in the first half and was declared out shortly after halftime. Vincent Rey has taken over at weakside linebacker for the Bengals in his absence.
Evans will start at outside linebacker during Sunday's tilt against the Browns, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Evans draws the start while Vontaze Burfict moves to middle linebacker, and the former should be busy Sunday with fellow outside linebacker Nick Vigil (knee) sidelined. Evans is up to 47 tackles (31 solo) and 1.5 sacks through 10 games this season.
Evans recorded nine tackles during Sunday's loss to the Saints.
Evans has logged the two highest snap counts of his career each of the past two weeks and subsequently averaged 10 tackles a contest while adding a pick-six for good measure. With Vontaze Burfict (hip), Preston Brown (leg), Nick Vigil (knee) and Vincent Rey (groin) all uncertain to play in Week 11 against the Ravens, Evans could be in store for yet another productive outing.
Evans recorded 11 tackles (seven solo), 1.5 sacks, one pass defended and one interception during Sunday's 37-34 win over the Buccaneers.
Evans made his presence known throughout all phases of Sunday's game, disrupting whichever of Jameis Winston or Ryan Fitzpatrick lined up under center for Tampa Bay. The second-year linebacker has made a strong case for an increased defensive workload even when Nick Vigil (knee) recovers from his sprained MCL.
Evans will start during Sunday's game against the Chiefs, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Evans' starting opportunity comes with Nick Vigil (knee) inactive. The second-year pro will start at weakside linebacker and attempt to contain the Chiefs' explosive offense.
Evans will retreat to the bench in standard situations with Vontaze Burfict coming back from suspension this week, Jay Morrison of The Athletic Cincinnati reports.
Evans hasn't made much of an IDP impact during Burfict's absence, tallying just 15 tackles over four games.
Evans could be in line for a lot of extra playing time while Vontaze Burfict is suspended for the first four games of the season, Bengals.com reports.
Evans has had a good first four days of training camp, particularly in pass coverage. The second-year player out of Oklahoma got a lot of playing time in his rookie year, logging 38 tackles.
Evans (concussion) was a full participant at the Bengals' practice Thursday.
Evans sustained the concussion in Sunday's win over the Lions and was a limited participant Wednesday. Full practice participation is obviously a good sign, but the 27-year-old is not yet officially clear of the concussion protocol and should be considered day-to-day until he fully clears it.
