Bucs WR Mike Evans unsure of severity of groin injury

Tampa Bay Times - [Full Article]

Rookie WR Mike Evans, who caught his first NFL touchdown pass on the opening drive, left the game with a groin injury.

The injury forced Evans to pull up in the middle of a deep route, which made for an easy interception by Cortez Allen at the Steelers' 11-yard line.

"Just a little tweak -- it hurt, and I couldn't run. I should have grabbed him so he couldn't get the pick. That's what I was most angry about," said Evans, who said he didn't know the severity of the injury.

Fantasy Impact: 

Evans is now a question mark for a Week 5 game at the Saints. The Bucs could use him for that contest which could feature a lot of points. The Bucs offense looked improved under QB Mike Glennon in their upset of the Steelers so there could be some hope for Evans owners going forward.
