After suffering a knee injury in the Bucs’ Week 17 match-up against the Falcons, wide receiver Mike Evans’ was helped off the field and taken for an MRI that night.

Head coach Bruce Arians gave a reassuring update after the game, stating that the organization didn’t think that the injury was anything serious, and later confirmed that Evans’ MRI revealed no ligament or significant structural damage. But despite no serious damage done to the knee, Evans’ status for the Bucs’ first round match-up against Washington was put in question.

Evans returned to practice on Thursday however, and according to a report from ESPN’s Jenna Laine, the veteran wide receiver will try to suit up and play on Saturday.

Of course he’s going to play. He’s Mike Evans.

Won’t matter much whether Evans plays or not IMO

Godwin, AB, Gronk and Rojo are all capable of winning this game themselves.

Mistake to me. Unless he’s 100% and not 99%. Too much at stake next week.

I wouldn’t say keep him out the whole game but maybe just limit his playing time. I do believe Godwin and Brown is enough to get the job done but I also understand Mike wanting to play his first playoff game. Either way, let’s get that win!

He’ll be good on short possession routes. Have him do button hooks

Not surprised at all. He’ll probably do some short stuff and play decoy. You can’t blame him for not wanting to miss his first playoff game.
