UPDATE: Mike Evans is OUT for the rest of the game, according to beat writer Greg Auman.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans caught a long 61-yard TD pass from Jameis Winston to take a 14-10 lead in the first quarter vs. the Colts in Week 14. The bad part is he pulled up at the tail end of the play and appeared to injure his hamstring, going down in the end zone.

Evans has gone to the locker room now and it’s unclear if he’ll be able to return to the game. Evans’ only catch was the TD, so if he isn’t able to come back, he’ll finish this crucial week with 13.1 fantasy points in PPR.

If Evans is unable to return, Chris Godwin would be in line for the bulk of the targets at WR, with Breshad Perriman also getting looks. Perriman already has a catch for 31 yards, so he could be the low-owned, value guy who pops on today’s main slate.
