“Very, Very Little Swelling And He’ll Be Day-To-Day”

January 4th, 2021

GREAT news from One Buc Palace moments ago.

Mike Evans has no structural damage in his injured knee, per Bucco Bruce Arians, who said hopefully Evans can practice Thursday.

Arians called the injury “hyperextension” and said there’s “very, very little swelling and he’ll be day-to-day.”

Arians also said the goal is for Evans to practice on Thursday. Today, Arians said Evans was running in a pool.

    Toughest? Come on Pablo… playing a week after a sprain vs. catching passes from Brady with a BROKEN finger?

    Good news, but the offense should dominate with Godwin and AB and Gronk (and Brate and…) if needed.

  5. Bird Says:

    Great news

    He will play. Like earlier in year with ankle
    He was a gimp but he still did good job as decoy getting safety to help with double.

    Someone may have made this comment prior, but man…how absolutely amazing was it that ME got the record when he did. Can you fricking imagine if he would have hyper extended his knee and dropped to record-breaking pass instead? And not been able to come back in the game?

    I wonder in that case if the Atlanta coaches would have been open to Mike limping downfield on one leg and catching the record-breaking pass in return for Tom Brady’s commitment to take a 20-year catch?

    Well…glad that scenario never needed to be contemplated.

    My personal vote would be to have Evans miss this first playoff game and prepare for the next. There’s no fricking way we’re losing to Washington. No way. So hedge your bet, Coach Arians. Don’t riskuit the ME bisquit!

  8. Todd Says:

    Sorry. Typo.

    “…for Tom Brady’s commitment to take a 20-year SACK?”

    FWIW, in college on a bad practice field, I slipped on a hard spot and my right leg with my full weight hit the ground stiff, like ME did. It felt like I got shot in the knee, like an electrical shock, and I couldn’t walk. Limped off with help, afraid I’d really messed it up. No damage the docs could see—no CT or MRI back then, just X-Ray—but some looseness they said. The joint was was really stiff for a couple days but surprisingly no real swelling.

    Without modern rehab and anti-inflammatories, it took maybe 4 days to get better, and I was running in 6 days.

    That said, it was scary.

    If all he had was a hyperextension, with modern medicine and rehab I suspect he’ll be fine, even for TFTFKATR Saturday night.

    I was one who thought he was really screwed when he went down. The way he wears those tiny knee pads, when he was on the ground it looked like the kneecap was displaced, similar to how Cadillac Williams leg looked the first knee injury. Thank god it wasn’t, and just a knee pad that rode up.

    Mike Evans is tougher than woodpecker lips.

  11. Robert Says:

    he’s great, but dare I say I’d rather have AB at 100% than ME at 75% in that spot.

  12. Davenport Says:

    Limited reps vs. Washington. Let AB start and do the bulk of the work. Use ME13 in the red zone only.

    He’ll need to be 100% the next week

  13. AlteredEgo Say: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    Good news… now you know that if anyone of us had that injury we would not get off the couch for two weeks much less play football a few days from now

  14. BillyBucFan Says:

    Hopefully he goes off too and hands the TD winning ball to Chase Young.
    Stupid SOB calling out Brady.


    great news God’s speed Mike E

  16. Capt.Tim Says:

    Fantastic News!

  18. PSL Bob Says:

    Although really good news, I think I’d sit him for this game and give AB more reps. Godwin and Brown provide a dual threat with Gronkowski and Brate making it even tougher. Let the knee heal completely and have him at full steam for the Divisional game, where ever that may be. I know he’ll want to play Sunday, but I’m always for keeping my powder dry for the big fight whenever possible.

  19. TampaTown Says:

    Omg is practice really necessary?! Isn’t rest and rehab better at this point?

  20. bojim Says:

    Let him rest till Saturday and play him if he’s ready and you need him. Otherwise he may hurt himself again!!!

  21. Cobraboy Says:

    If there is no structural damage, there isn’t much healing to be done. Maybe just sore and stiff, like a bad bruise and capillary contusions.

  22. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Are you kidding me, ME13 knows what this team is all about and wants in for the ride actually co-pilot with Brady. A little surprised he dropped the TD, right between the 1&3. Godwin would of held on. Great news for Bucs fans.

  23. Kentucky Buc Says:

    I see Evans playing Saturday. He’s waited his whole career for this.

  24. Kentucky Buc Says:

    Absolutely correct on the hyper extended knee @Cobraboy. It scares the hell out of you when it happens but it’s a quick recovery and doesn’t really compromise the knee for further damage. At least that’s what the doc told me.

  25. 123urout Says:

    If Mike is not in a wheelchair, he will play.
