Bucs optimistic on Evans | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Buccaneers WR Mike Evans has a "good chance" to play against the Saints today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Bucs "are optimistic he will go but want to see how he's feeling Sunday and test him pregame first." The 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff adds risk, of course, if you're waiting to decide on whether to start Evans. And there's certainly re-injury risk with his hamstring. If you have another attractive option, we'd lean that way. If Evans winds up inactive, then WR Scotty Miller would gain upside.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that Evans "may be on a pitch count" today.
