Titans rookie ILB Rashaan Evans returned to practice Wednesday. Evans spent more than 3 weeks sidelined for "heat-related" reasons, ESPN's Turron Davenport reports. We don't yet know any further details of the issue. Evans had been splitting snaps with veteran Will Compton before going down. The 1st-round pick figures to get back to that before too long, but the lost time will make it tougher for Evans to take over the spot by himself. We've knocked Evans down the LB rankings. He's a risk/reward pick at the bottom of LB3 range.
Update: Aaaaand Evans left his 1st practice back. “Rashaan wasn’t feeling great after individual, so we’ll give him some more treatment, and we’ll give him some more time,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said, according to TitanInsider.com. “As soon as he’s ready, we’ll get him back out there.”
The Falcons on Monday agreed to a 1-year deal with LB Rashaan Evans. A 2018 first-round pick of the Titans, Evans never lived up to that billing. Although he started 11 of the 12 games he was available for last year, Evans' playing time dipped to 60%. He might find himself competing with Mykal Walker for the #2 LB role in Atlanta, after Foye Oluokun left for Jacksonville in free agency. But there's also still room for the Falcons to add a better prospect in the NFL Draft.
Titans LB Rashaan Evans (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Saints. He joins LB David Long on the inactive list. Jayon Brown should lead the ILB group in playing time and offer a nice option for IDP lineups.
The Titans have ruled LB Rashaan Evans (ankle) out for today's game against the Colts. Jayon Brown has yet to be activated from IR, so it'll be either Monty Rice or Nick Dzubnar filling in for Evans next to David Long. We'd only bet on Long seeing full playing time and thus making sense for your IDP lineup.
The Titans are declining the 5th-year option on the rookie contract of former 1st-round LB Rashaan Evans. That makes 2021 the final campaign on his deal. Assuming Evans doesn't explode and earn a new contract, his expected departure could benefit Jayon Brown and/or David Long.
