Mike Evans Was On A Pitch Count

September 20th, 2015
Bucs WR Mike Evans was limited by coaches today.

Bucs WR Mike Evans was limited by coaches today.

While Joe interviewed Doug Martin, over Martin’s shoulder, Mike Evans was getting dressed. At one point, Evans stood up and grimaced worse than if he saw Rosie O’Donnell walking out of the shower nude.

Read into that what you want, but early in the game, Evans played sparingly as he is recovering from a bum hamstring. Evans, after the game, professed he felt great but did confess Lovie Smith had him on a pitch count of sorts.

“It was over 50, 40-some plays,” Evans said of his limit today.

So that is why you didn’t see a lot of Evans early on. The Bucs were saving him.

Evans declared he would be ready to rock and roll at Houston next Sunday, but the way Joe noticed Evans grimace and react to some sort of pain, again, without Rosie O’Donnell in the same area code, it sure didn’t look like Evans is 100 percent.

    Decoy day 🙂

  3. Leighroy Says:

    He didn’t have a single catch!! I’m still concerned, need to start targeting him more next week.

  4. This Guy Right Here Says:

    I was looking for his number all during the 1st half… We need this dude on the field ASAP!

    With a 100% Mike Evans, this game would have been over by the 3rd quarter! Get healthy Mike! Quick!!!

    Evans also said after he injured his hamstring in Week 2 of the preseason that if Week 3 was the regular season he would have played. So he sat and sat as a precaution and then he’s out Week 1 and limited Week 2.

    As a fan and a season ticket holder this pi$$e$ me off to no end. Let’s face it… this offense needs Evans AND Jackson to be effective and Lovie and Evans are jerking us around. I can skip some of these crap games and spend time with my son outside NOT swearing.

    Apparently McCoy is fine!! Watch for him to be limited or even miss a game

  7. Drywaller Buc Says:

    We should’ve drafted Beckham !!!! Lol

    Murphy did good enough to fill in.

    If Evans grimaced, then I don’t see how he can claim to be 100%. I think it’s dumb to risk longer injury by being prideful and stubborn. Heal up, dude.

    Way I see it, if he rests now, he’ll be fully healed about the time the offensive line is coming into its own…and that’s when Winston will need him most.

    Meanwhile, Murphy gets experience.

    Now that’s funny!

    “Rosie O’Donnell”

    @BucTrooper you got a win this week…be happy with that! Sheesh!!!!!

  11. Buccfan37 Says:

    Agree about Evans, he’s not 100%, the grimace a dead giveaway. This is troubling to be sure. On seeing Rosie O’Donnell naked, that would blind Mister Magoo.

  12. Destinjohnny Says:

    You can’t rush a hamie.
    Shut it down mike for a
    Few weeks

  13. Skyline Crew Says:

    Started him in fantasy. Bucs should have just left him out.

  14. David Says:

    Dammit…second year in a row this dude blew a tire…lol. How about doing some yoga to stretch and strengthen dem hammies brotha! Dayum.

  15. Danr Says:

    CATCH-LESS MIKE EVANS. again he was spending more time begging for penalties than running after balls.

    just like preseason- Winston’s first pick in preseason was on Evans lack of effort.

    Mike Evans is catch-less in preseason and regular season so far.

    Please Evans show up next week make me eat my words, i am a HUGE fan of you. but so far i am disappointed.

    We have too many hamstring pulls on this team year in and year out. We need our strength and conditioning guys to make sure these guys stretch properly before and during games and practices. It’s getting really annoying!

    Relax folks: The Teaxans are not the problem, rest and comeback for the Panthers. A home game and a division game.
