Bucs WR Mike Evans "tweaked" a hamstring in Friday's practice, HC Todd Bowles said. This doesn't sound like a serious injury, but we'll keep an eye on it. Evans has dealt with hamstring trouble in 2015, 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said Monday that he'll play his starters in Sunday's finale vs. the Panthers. Tampa has clinched the NFC South but can move from the #3 seed to #2 with a win and a Rams loss to the 49ers. "You play to win," Arians said. "You play to get that second seed, that’s huge. We’re not resting anybody. We’re playing to win.”

Bucs HC Bruce Arians said after Sunday's win over the Jets that WR Antonio Brown's time with the Bucs is over. That's not a surprise after Brown removed his jersey and left the field in the middle of the 3rd quarter. But it's still a massive loss for a Bucs offense that is also without WR Chris Godwin for the rest of the season. That leaves Breshad Perriman, Cyril Grayson and Tyler Johnson as the top WRs behind Mike Evans. Evans and TE Rob Gronkowski should be the focal points of the passing game in Week 18 and the playoffs.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is active for today’s game vs. the Jets. He got in just a limited practice on Friday after spending Monday through Thursday on the COVID list. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that Evans will play “in a limited capacity.” Check the Week 17 WR Rankings to see if Evans makes sense for your starting lineup.

Bucs WR Mike Evans is expected to play "in a limited capacity" vs. the Jets today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Evans hurt his hamstring in Week 15, missed Week 16 and then landed on the COVID list on Monday. Evans came off the COVID list on Friday and got in a limited practice that day. He's obviously a risky fantasy play today, although he's capable of doing some damage on just a handful of targets -- especially vs. the Jets.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jets. He was activated off the COVID list and put in a limited practice on Friday. Between the COVID, hamstring and an easily winnable game against the Jets, we’d be a little surprised if Evans played on Sunday. But we’ll find out for sure around 11:30 am ET.

The Buccaneers on Friday activated WR Mike Evans from the COVID list. That makes him eligible to play Sunday against the Jets, but we still need to see about the hamstring injury that cost him last week's game.

The NFL announced changes to the COVID protocol on Tuesday. Most notable is that fully vaccinated players can be cleared and return in less than 5 days if their symptoms have improved, while unvaccinated players are out for at least 5 days from the positive test. This means guys like Carson Wentz, Mike Evans and Mike Williams have a chance to be cleared for Week 17. We'll keep you updated on all the guys on the COVID list.

The Buccaneers on Monday placed WR Mike Evans on the COVID list. He missed Sunday's win over the Panthers with a hamstring injury that has yet to allow him to return to practice. So it's not clear whether Evans would be available for Week 17 even if he clears the league COVID protocols. We'll see where this week goes, but don't plan to have Evans available for your fantasy football lineups.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Panthers. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Evans is considered "week to week" with his strained hamstring, so his availability for next Sunday's game vs. the Jets is up in the air.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. He's considered "week to week," so fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting him to play vs. the Panthers this weekend.

Bucs WR Mike Evans is considered "week to week" with a strained hamstring, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefter adds that Evans "has a chance" to play vs. the Panthers on Sunday. That doesn't really jibe with the "week to week" label. We'll obviously keep a close eye on Evans' status throughout this week. For now, fantasy owners should plan on being without him in Week 16.

Bucs WR Chris Godwin is expected to miss the rest of the regular season with an MCL sprain suffered in Sunday night's loss to the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Tampa expects to get Godwin back for the playoffs. We'll see whether WR Mike Evans (hamstring) is able to play vs. the Panthers this weekend, but WR Antonio Brown's return comes at a perfect time.

Bucs WR Mike Evans' hamstring injury is "nothing major," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Evans "should be ok," Rapoport adds. That's good news -- but still doesn't tell us whether we'll have Evans for Week 16 fantasy lineups. We'll look for further updates on his status.

Bucs WR Mike Evans hurt his right hamstring in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Saints and is officially doubtful to return. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Evans has been ruled out for the game.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. HC Bruce Arians said afterward that Brown "probably" won't play vs. the Falcons this weekend. It's disappointing news after Arians said last week that he was "hopeful" to get Brown back for this one. Brown should stay stashed on fantasy benches as we continue to monitor his rehab. His absence is good news for Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Rob Gronkowski.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (back) isn't listed on the final injury report. He sat out on Wednesday and Thursday with what HC Bruce Arians called "back tightness" but put in a full practice on Friday. Evans is safe to get into fantasy lineups for Sunday's plus matchup vs. the Colts' 26th-ranked WR defense.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (back) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's reportedly dealing with back tightness, leaving his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Colts in limbo. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Bucs WR Mike Evans missed Wednesday's practice with what HC Bruce Arians called back tightness. This will be a situation to monitor leading into Sunday's game vs. the Colts. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Bucs WR Antonio Brown (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Saints. HC Bruce Arians suggested earlier this week that Brown isn't a lock to be ready after the Week 9 bye. His absence is good news for WRs Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. Tyler Johnson will operate as the #3 WR but would be a fantasy flier.
