Mike Evans OUT against the Titans

Tampa Bay will be without their number one receiver today.

Jameis Winston will be without his number one target during his NFL debut.  Evans is entering his second season in the league after putting up over 1,000 yards last season.

Evan's absence will be felt in the redzone today the most.  He hauled in 12 touchdowns last season, assuming the number one role from Vincent Jackson.  Speaking of Jackson, he will figure to be the Bucs' top target today.  Jackson also topped 1,000 yards last season, but only scored twice all season.

Louis Murphy, Russell Shepard and Adam Humphries will play behind Jackson.  With the offensive line banged up already, Jameis Winston could be in for a long day.  Look for Doug Martin and Austin Seferian-Jenkins to contribute to the passing game.
