HC Bruce Arians announces WR Mike Evans will not play in the team’s third preseason game against Cleveland this Friday. Evans has been sidelined all week with a lower body injury (we believe a quad injury).
Mike Evans has been out a week with what appears to be a quad injury but the team doesn't appear to be worried about his Week 1 availability. He will miss the third preseason game or the team's "dress rehearsal" for the regular season and then starters almost never play in the fourth preseason game. Evans is a veteran who should be fine without taking the field in preseason, so we'll, for now, we'll need to keep an eye on practice reports to make sure he gets back out there and looks healthy.
