After a slight tweak of his right hamstring last week, Mike Evans was back on the practice field for the Buccaneers on Wednesday, per Scott Smith of the team’s website.
The rookie sensation was slow to get up after a crossing pattern thrown by Mike Glennon during the second session of OTAs last Thursday. Following the practice head coach Lovie Smith wasn’t overly concerned about Evans, reminding the media of similar injury he had last offseason before going on to have one of the best rookie campaigns in franchise history.
“In the offseason there are tweaks,” Smith said. “My hamstring is even a little sore right now. You said he tweaked it last year right? How did he do this past year? Pretty well, so it’s not something we are concerned about at all. He tweaked it a little bit. He’ll eventually be fine.”
While they’ll likely monitor the situation throughout OTAs, it appears Smith was right not to worry about Evan’s minor tweak.
Thursday’s session is open to the media, where we’ll report on all the latest during the Buccaneer’s practice.
