Perhaps the best news to come out of One Buc Place so far this week is that Mike Evans was back practicing on Wednesday.
Bucs WR Mike Evans
Evans, who strained his hamstring on August 24, participated in last Friday’s walkthrough-type practice, but was inactive during the 42-14 debacle at home on Sunday. His absense was clearly felt, as Tampa Bay’s receivers were having trouble getting separation all afternoon.
The Bucs take hamstring injuries very seriously (as any team does) so it remains uncertain if he’ll be ready in time for New Orleans. But the fact that he’s back for the team’s first Week 2 practice is a good sign, nonetheless.
As for players who were sidelined on Wednesday, safety Major Wright (abdomen) was the only one not participating in practice after inuring his hip last Sunday.
UPDATED 4:56 p.m.: Head coach Lovie Smith confirmed at his press conference that Danny Lansanah (ankle) and T.J. Fatinikun (shoulder) were also non-participants on Wednesday.
