Bucs have the perfect response to this tweet about Mike Evans

A lot of people may be overlooking the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this year, but there's one player on the team who year in, year out gets overlooked when conversations about best in the game come up.

That player of course is wide receiver Mike Evans, who entering his sixth season with the Bucs is already the team's franchise leader in receiving yards. Last season, the former Texas A&M Aggie had a career-high 1,524 receiving yards to go along with eight touchdowns.

Oh, yeah, and he just turned 26 this past week

Mike Evans (leg) returns to Bucs practice

Mike Evans (leg) returned to practice on Monday.

Evans was held out of last week's preseason game with a leg injury, though it's likely the Bucs were just erring on the side of caution. There was never any concern over his Week 1 status. Coming off arguably his best season (86-1,524-8 receiving line on 139 targets), Evans should be poised for another monster year in 2019. Quietly on a Hall of Fame trajectory, Evans is one of just three receivers in league history—the others being Randy Moss and A.J. Green—to clear 1,000 yards in each of his first five seasons.

Remains out with quad injury

Evans (quadriceps/groin) was again held out of practice Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Evans has been sidelined for a week with his quad injury and it's unclear when he'll be able to return. The team is in no hurry to rush their star receiver back in the preseason and has ruled Evans and other starters out for Thursday's preseason finale. There's been no indication thus far that Evans' injury will impact his regular-season availability.

Absent with quad issue again

Evans (quad) isn't at practice Wednesday, making him unlikely to play in Friday's preseason game against Cleveland, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Unable to finish Sunday's practice, Evans now is absent from work for a third straight day. Coach Bruce Arians wasn't worried about the injury Monday, even leaving open the possibility of Evans playing in Friday's exhibition. That probably won't actually happen, but it's a good sign Arians even viewed it as an option.

Mike Evans won't play remainder of preseason

Mike Evans (leg) will not play in the Bucs' third preseason game.

Evans has been sidelined all week with what reporters believe is a quad issue. It's obviously nothing major and something that won't affect his Week 1 availability. But since this is the third preseason game, typically dubbed the "regular season dress rehearsal," we figured it's worth noting since we're unlikely to blurb Evans again before the opener. Evans played 20 snaps this preseason but didn't catch a pass on one target. Chris Godwin has been the hype darling all summer, but Evans is still in a phenomenal spot as a shoo-in WR1. Niners-Bucs should be spicy for fantasy stats Week 1.
