Mike Evans injury update: Buccaneers WR misses practice Wednesday

Mike Evans had 68 catches for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns in his rookie season.  The 6'5" WR presents match-up problems for just about every team in the league.  He would present a huge match-up problem for the Titans this weekend who are going to be without Jason McCourty...that is if Evans is able to play.  Evans has been out for a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury, and he didn't practice on Wendesday according to Rick Stroud:

Now, it is still early.  When the injury happened both Evans and Tampa Bay coach Lovie Smith said that Evans would be back for week 1.  That was one reason they decided just to go ahead and shut him down for the remainder of the preseason when he first hurt his hamstring.

We will keep an eye on this as the week goes along.  This is a potentially huge development for the real life game, and those of you who have him in fantasy football.  Stay tuned.
