Mike Evans Has Company On The Injury Report

September 9th, 2020


A few Bucs were limited in practice today as Mike Evans sat out his second consecutive session with the dreaded “H” word, hamstring.

Man, Joe’s got sour stomach about Evans potentially missing Sunday’s game, but more important, having a lingering hamstring all season.

Time to move on to happier thoughts.

The first official Bucs injury report of the season, which came out after 4 p.m., shows safety Andrew Adams and cornerback Parnell Motley nursing hamstring issues. They had limited work today along with cornerback Ryan Smith (ankle). So that’s the good news; only one starter is injured.

Smith and Adams, however, are key special teams guys and depth pieces. They are the old men of the Bucs secondary.

    Damn hammies! It’s a bucs life.

  2. Sarasota Garey Says:

    Maybe you can ask Arians why the flip his training staff keeps giving his players hamstring injuries.

  3. Elita Vita Says:

    Goes to show you how valuable it is to invest in a great training staff.

    King of the summertime hammies ….

    Mr. Mike Evans.

    Get well soon before CG14 takes your spot.

  6. ocala Says:

    The Saints have two starting linemen out(DE Marcus Davenport and C/G Carlos Ruiz).

    @Kobe Faker- 🤣🤣 nailed it!

  8. Christopher Schiefen Says:

    After last year’s hamstring debacles, it was so frustrating to see they kept the same strength staff.

  9. SOEbuc Says:

    Ocala…thank you. That really picked my head up.


    GO BUCS!!!

  10. WyomingBucsFan Says:

    If I remember correctly he missed the last 2 games last season with a hamstring problem.

  11. Buc1987 Says:

    All they need is Brady anyways!

  12. Sarasota Garey Says:

    Last year it was Miller, Evans, Godwin, Nelson with severe hamstring injuries. This year we have 3 hamstring injuries before game one, everyone will be on IR at this rate.

  13. No Risk It No Biscuit Says:

    We are doomed.

    Our only hope is for Jameis to get in the game at QB.

    There goes the Super Bowl. Lol

  14. Jeffbuc Says:

    They better not rush him back. I would rather be overly cautious. If he thinks he can go in week 2 I would wait until week 3 just to make sure. Because the last we need is him in and out of the lineup all year. And we need to hire a hamstring expert. This is getting ridiculous every year 3-4 starters out with hamstrings.

  15. stpetebucsfan Says:

    CG14 is going to get some more touches if ME13 is out..but Brady loves him some tight ends and now he has an HOFfer….a very talented young guy…and another guy who has flown under the radar but produced.

    And let’s not forget the difference in our backfield…Shady is great out of the backfield…Fournette is good and ROJO has improved.

    Nobody wants to lose ME but if we had to lose a starter our targets out the deepest spot on this team.

  16. Bucsfanman Says:

    Early “doom and gloom” I see!

  17. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Somehow I don’t see Mike Evans missing goats debut

  18. Dano Says:

    Can’t believe we’re going thru hamstring injuries again! Unreal

  19. Rayjay1122 Says:

    CG14, Scooter, Gronk, Howard and Shady/Rojo/Fournette, all still give TB12 plenty of weapons. Remember last season with the Pats he really only had Edelman and he was playing with a bad chest injury for several weeks.

  20. Rayjay1122 Says:

    The repetitive Hammy injuries is annoying but at this pount we are still OK.

  21. JimmyJack Says:

    Man you guys are freaking out. He hasn’t even missed game one either yet hahaha.

    Ok so worse case scenario, Mike misses week one. The first guy I think of is Gronk. Not a bad next man up if you ask me. Passing weapons is the deepest part of our team. We still easily have more firepower then the Saints without Mike. And for sure enough to beat them.

  22. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Smoke screen 💨

  23. JimmyJack Says:

    And yes Mike injures his hamstring every preseason. This is not new.

    Only difference is it usually happens around mid August. With the shortened preseason we now see it bite us right before Game1.

    But I’m still betting Mike plays on Sunday if I had to lay money down.

  24. Kobe Faker Says:

    “TB12 is picky

    He wants his receivers at their exact spots and ready to catch and gain productive yards

    If he doesnt have confidence and consistency when called upon

    Your not getting the ball thrown to you

    TB12 type of reciever and the 2 most important receivers during the season will be

    OJ Howard and Leonard Fournette

    Last 20 years you dont think TB12 knows which reciever will click/work with his style/skill set

    TB12 knows the inside blitz and in your face pressure is his weakness

    He can’t step up and he is a statue

    It is more productive for him to throw the ball into the receivers feet and end the play and reset in the next play

    Running around and improvising around the pocket will lead to TB12 ints but more importantly injury

    TB12 isn’t starting over after 20 years. The Bucs have to adjust to him

    He is who he is and will always will be

    *you guys are very lucky this year, Kobe will be posting inside info before anyone and Kobe will post it here first

    Everyone knows Kobe Faker and Bucs reporter Jenna Laine has a special relationship

    **Jenna L talks in her sleep”

  25. Tampabuscsbro Says:

    Not catastrophic, also for people talking about how bad and annoying this is y’all have a short memory as to how banged up this team would be at the start of the season in the past.

  26. Will Says:

    Mike has always had hamstring issues. Supposedly we’ve got this great sports science staff it’s time to forget what’s going on with his hamstrings and get it fixed. Ended the season on IR due to hamstring issues should have been a huge point of emphasis in his off season training.

    Lets go Bucs!

  27. Roy T. Buford Says:

    Nothing new here, even for the first week, for Evans. Hate to see it, though. If he sits out totally tomorrow, then I will worry.

  28. Greg Says:

    With the abbreviated training/preseason it is predictable that the hamstring injuries will be numerous with the speed positions. In the MLB the ramped up 2.0 spring training with pitchers has resulted in numerous “elbow’ injuries. It makes sense that both are/will be due to the unusual ramp up. Hopefully the Bucs will experience very little of this.

  29. Jerry Says:

    I think you are going to see a lot of injuries this year, not just the Bucs, but all teams. The offseason was shortened and the pre-season non-existent. Conditioning is going to be a major problem.

    Expect a lot of cramping.

  30. TampaTown Says:

    WTF with these hamstring injuries?! Especially after what happened at the end of last year? Someone better get this $hit figured out.
    And Kobe and Alaska:
    There can’t be a girl in your vicinity without you pitching a tent? What are you two, twelve years old?

  31. Buc1987 Says:

    Roy he most likely will be out tomorrow too!

  32. WhoCares Says:

    This team has been hamstrung for years for one reason or another. This year no excuses!!!

    Time to Eat some meat!!! Preferably… W…. Wings

  33. Seth B Says:

    When Ariana said he ran em to hard on a plus day I guess this is what he meant

  35. Clean House Says:

    Incompetent coaching staff and trainers should all be fired

    It doesn’t get any dumber than throwing money at free agents then destroying them through incompetence

  36. adam from ny Says:


    thats wild…

    as per kobe the flaker

  37. Buclife954 Says:

    Are the guys not stretching cuz all these hammys

  38. pick6 Says:

    hydrate. stretch. do what TB12 does, guys

  39. Ed Says:

    Mike is a big guy yet his power is in his upper body. Maybe he should get those legs a little more muscular. His lower body is a little lean for his overall size. I don’t know if thats an issue with hamstrings but the one he got last year when he was scoring a TD, he just pulled up lame without any contact. There has to be a way of developing that part of his body to make his upper legs stronger.
