Buccaneers WR Mike Evans not on the injury report after injuring groin and oblique in Week 8

Joe Bucs Fan - [Full Article]

Buccaneers WR Mike Evans was in a revealing mood on his Total Access show on the Buccaneers Radio Network last night. He explained that he injured his groin as a result of awkward movement because he couldn’t squeeze a perfectly thrown football.

“My groin, if I wouldn’t have dropped the pass I wouldn’t have hurt my groin,” Evans said. “Yeah, I dropped the pass and I turned before I secured the ball. And then the guy pushed me, and I tried to stop myself and it like tweaked up a little bit on me.

Evans also added that he injured his oblique muscles extending for a catch against Atlanta. “It felt kind of like my ribs were broken,” Evans said, but the sharp pain steadily subsided.

Fantasy Impact: 

Evans isn't even on the injury report, so he must be close to full health. He has a great matchup with the Giants, who are #30 in WR aFPA after getting shredded by Drew Brees and Co. last week.
