Mike Evans injury update

Evans has been playing since getting his foot stepped on, but he seems to be off according to most folks watching the game. He was seen limping off again in the third quarter but returned to the game. Whether he is able to finish the game or not, he will be a name to track as injury news comes in over the next couple days.

UPDATE: Evans was stepped on by a Seahawks defender after the touchdown. He should be good to go.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are impressing in Week 9 against the Seattle Seahawks, but they might have an injury concern. Wide receiver Mike Evans caught a touchdown pass to give the team a 21-7 lead, but he came up gimpy after the play. He was holding his lower leg and limped a bit as he jogged off the field. He has six receptions for 72 yards to go along with the touchdown. We’ll see if there is further word or if he returns when the Bucs get the ball back.
