Buccaneers WR Mike Evans (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Evans was limited and even doubtful to play at one point last week so it is not entirely surprising Evans is still being limited by his hamstring. He ultimately fought through the ailment and played only to catch a single pass for a touchdown in Week 1. Evans looks like he will play thorugh the injury again this week, and he could be set to explode in a generous matchup with Carolina and teammate Chris Godwin dealing with a concussion.
49ers rookie WR Brandon Aiyuk was limited in practice Wednesday but reportedly looked good running routes.
Aiyuk suffered a hamstring injury late in training camp and missed Week 1 along with teammate Deebo Samuel. Before the injury, Aiyuk was receiving some hype as an electric runner after the catch on a team with a shallow depth chart at wide receiver. If he is able to return this week, he should have a solid role in the offense with Samuel still sitting out and TE George Kittle also banged up.
The Eagles held Sanders out of the opener after he dealt with a hamstring issue for most of training camp. That cautious approach may pay dividends if Sanders is now back to full health, but soft tissue injuries are always difficult to deal with. Neither Boston Scott nor the team as a whole were particularly impressive in the season opener, so Sanders should jump back into a lead role if he returns this week. Sanders will carry RB1 upside in a matchup with the Rams.
