Won't play on Monday Night Football

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-27

Evans (calf) is inactive for Monday's Week 12 clash with Chicago.

Evans will miss his second straight game due to a calf injury he suffered in a Week 10 win over New Orleans. The second-year cornerback followed a pair of limited practice sessions to begin the week with a full session Saturday, so he appears to be closing in on a return. With the Vikings on bye next week, it's likely that Evans will be able to play in their next game, which will take place in Las Vegas on Dec. 10.

Could return Week 12

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-25

Evans (calf) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Bears, Kevin Seifert of reports.

Evans missed Week 11 against the Broncos after sustaining a calf injury in Week 10 against the Saints. He was a limited participant in practice Thursday and Friday and his status may not be fully known until 90 minutes before kickoff time. Mekhi Blackmon played a season-high 50 defensive snaps at left corner in Week 11 when Evans was out and the former would appear to reprise that starting role if the latter is ruled out for Monday's game.

Won't play at Denver

Evans (calf) is listed as out for Sunday's game at the Broncos.

Evans will sit out his first game of the season in Week 11 as he tends to a calf injury he sustained in Week 10 versus the Saints. In his absence, 2022 second-rounder Andrew Booth will probably see an uptick in reps at corner Sunday.

Begins Week 11 prep with DNP

Evans (calf) was a non-participant in Wednesday's estimated practice.

Evans exited Sunday's win over the Saints early in the fourth quarter due to a calf injury and was unable to return. Rookie Mekhi Blackmon stepped in for Evans in that contest and would likely start this Sunday in Denver if the latter is unavailable. Evans' likelihood of suiting up against the Broncos should become clearer as Week 11 prep progresses.

Exits due to injury

Evans has left Sunday's game against the Saints due to a calf injury, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

Evans suffered the injury early in the fourth quarter, so he won't have much time to make it back in the game, but he is still considered questionable to return. While he is out of action, Andrew Booth and Mekhi Blackmon will be candidates for action snaps at corner.

Limited practice Wednesday

Evans (neck) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Evans was able to overcome an oblique injury to play in Sunday's game against the Patriots and finished the game with four solo tackles while playing all but one defensive snap. Evans had also dealt with a knee injury that limited him in practices earlier in the season. Barring any setback, he should be good to go for Week 9 against the Falcons.

Good to go

Evans (oblique) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Vikings.

After a week of limited practice sessions, Evans' health is close enough to par for him to suit up. Barring any setbacks, he should take on his usual role at cornerback opposite Byron Murphy.

Questionable Monday

Evans (oblique) is listed as questionable ahead of Monday night's game against San Francisco.

The 24-year-old cornerback of Missouri was limited all week in practice, as he's been dealing with oblique soreness since Minnesota's Week 6 win over Chicago. If Evans is unable to go Monday night, Andrew Booth and Mekhi Blackmon will likely see an increased workload in the Vikings' secondary.

Limited practice Thursday

Evans (oblique) was a limited participant at the Vikings' practice Thursday.

Evans is dealing with an oblique issue that popped up in Week 6 versus Chicago, but his ability to practice Thursday in any capacity bodes well for his chances to go Monday versus San Francisco. The linebacker will look to increase his workload this week at practice ahead of the Week 7 matchup.
