Report: Mike Evans Will Play

October 12th, 2014


The Buccaneers’ rookie first-round pick didn’t fully participate in a practice all last week, but it seems his groin is good enough to test in live competition this afternoon against Baltimore.

Per NFL Network super insider Ian Rapoport this morning, Evans will suit up today. He’ll join Vincent Jackson, who also was listed as questionable through the week, though Jackson often misses practice time to preserve him for Sunday.

Evans’ presence, assuming he’s healthy, should help open up the offense. He proved in Pittsburgh two weeks ago that he’s a real-deal threat.

    Good news! He will help the Offense. Plus every bit of playing experience will make him a Better Reciever next year. Hope he’s able to contribute

  4. Buccfan37 Says:

    Hope Evans gets in the game and can snag a couple or three receptions.

  5. Boomer33 Says:

    As much as I want him to play, I really thought they should sit him out this week, especially since we have a bye week coming up. If he pulls up lame again today, this could be a poor decision by the Bucs coaching staff.

    Or a great decision!!!!!

    Mike Evans is a stud.

    Go Bucs!!

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Evans won’t play unless he’s ready…..and we will benefit greatly by having him in the game….we need all the offense we can get today.

    Lurker, why the hostility?

    Even if he doesn’t directly effect the passing game I hope the downfield threat will allow us to finally have a running game.

    I agree don’t risk it, there’s a bye week coming up and he has his entire career ahead, were not doing anything this season and besides there’s more at stake than glennon’s stats, no one really thinks we have had a potent offense the last two games right? Bobby Rainey is the third best receiver on our roster, our slot position does absolutely nothing. Brilliant idea to get rid of Tim wright another smart move by lovie getting rid of production and replacing it with nothing, that’s Greg schiano like coaching

    Ditto. I’m probably the only dumb ass that actually fell for it though. Hopefully I caught it in time before I destroyed anything. It’s been a couple of weeks and I have no problems so far.

  16. Jeff Says:

    I would sit the guy until he is perfectly healthy. What are we gaining by playing a guy who is at 85% when there is NOTHING to play for? Unfortunately, this is a practice year for the Bucs thanks to Lovie’s bad call to start McClown at QB instead of glennon and refusing to adapt his defense for the “talent” he has.

    Mike Evans is a rookie-to-be-stud. Lurker is another fan that expects INSTANT success from rookies or they’re a bust.
