The hamstring injury suffered by the receiver has already cost him a week’s action. During that week, Antonio Brown and Cyril Grayson replaced Evans and Godwin. Now, the same might happen against the Jets. Brown, who got activated on the Bucs roster after being back from a three-game suspension, saw immediate action against the Panthers and is expected to play against the Jets in full capacity.

Evans had limited participation during the practice on Friday since he was listed on the COVID list on Monday through Thursday. Although he sat out most of his days in practice last week, subsequently missing on the Panthers’ action. But he is expected to be back against the Jets, though not with full participation. His presence will be an added advantage to the superstar quarterback Tom Brady.
