WR Mike Evans Held Out of Minicamp
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was held out of the teams mandatory 3 day minicamp this week with a hamstring injury. Head Coach Bruce Arians said that Evans was held out because of a “slight hamstring and no sense of aggravating it this time of year.”
The Bucs are just getting together as a team to finally figure out the playbooks and everything but Evans has been around all offseason so this injury is okay to hold him out for. Hamstring injuries can linger throughout seasons and through careers so Arians and company were smart to hold out Evans from practicing these 3 days without pads or anything.
Mike Evans now has around 6 or 7 weeks to heal before the Buccaneers come back and get at it with training camp. This time off will be crucial for the long term health of Evans and physical therapy and off time will benefit the body healing. Evans should be ready to go for training camp and into the season.
