Healthy ahead of Week 3

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-21

Evans (hamstring) is no longer listed on the Bengals' injury report ahead of Monday night's Week 3 game against the Rams, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Evans played just seven offensive snaps in the Week 1 loss and then missed last week's game against the Ravens. He's been no threat to Joe Mixon's workload and might even be behind Trayveon Williams on the depth chart. Evans has zero fantasy value.

Sitting out Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-17

Evans (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the Ravens, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Evans' absence will leave the team without their No. 3 running back and kick returner. In his place, Charlie Jones, who handles punt return duties, will likely also take over on kicks, while running back Chase Brown will make his NFL debut after being selected in the fifth round of the 2023 Draft.

Officially questionable for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

Evans (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus Baltimore.

As expected, Evans will carry an injury designation into Cincinnati's matchup versus the Ravens in Week 2. If he's out, fifth-round rookie Chase Brown would likely be in line to make his NFL debut.

Week 2 status TBD

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

Coach Zac Taylor noted that Evans (hamstring) was limited at practice Friday, Kelsey Conway of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Per the report, Taylor indicated that the team will evaluate Evans -- who didn't practice Thursday -- on Saturday to see where the running back is in terms of his availability for Sunday's game against the Ravens. Evans thus appears to be trending toward heading into the weekend officially listed as questionable.

Back at practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-15

Evans (hamstring) is present for Friday's practice, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Evans didn't practice Thursday due to a hamstring issue, so it will be encouraging if he's even officially listed as a 'limited' participant. He logged three touches Week 1 while splitting depth work behind Joe Mixon with Trayveon Williams.

Not practicing Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-14

Evans (hamstring) wasn't in uniform for Thursday's practice, Ben Baby of reports.

Evans was listed as limited Wednesday, so that fact that he didn't suit up for Thursday's session suggests that the running back's status for Sunday's game against the Ravens could be in danger. If Evans ends up being ruled out, Chase Brown (a healthy scratch in Week 1) would likely be active versus Baltimore to provide depth behind top back Joe Mixon.

Nursing hamstring injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-13

Evans was a limited participant at practice Wednesday due a hamstring issue.

Evans dealt with an undisclosed injury near the end of the preseason, but it's not clear if his current issue is related. The third-year pro played a limited role as Cincinnati's No. 3 running back in the season-opening loss against Cleveland, logging six offensive snaps and finishing with two carries for 12 yards along with one reception for a one-yard loss. However, he didn't appear to be held back by the previous injury as he also served as the team's lead kickoff returner, tallying 45 yards on two returns. Given Evans' ability to take the practice field (albeit in limited fashion) Wednesday, there's a decent chance he'll be able to play in Week 2, especially if he's able to get in a full practice session by the end of the week.

Three touches behind Mixon

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-10

Evans rushed twice for 12 yards and caught his only target for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Browns.

Joe Mixon led the Bengals in both rushing attempts (13) and targets (five), while Evans shared the leftovers with Trayveon Williams, who had seven yards on two rushing attempts. Samaje Perine carved out a substantial role in passing situations at Mixon's expense last season, but Evans currently looks like more of a true backup following Perine's departure, even if he's marginally ahead of both Williams and rookie fifth-round pick Chase Brown, who was a healthy scratch Sunday. Evans and the Bengals will face the Ravens in Week 2.

Present for practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-04

Evans (undisclosed) was present for Monday's practice, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Athletic reports.

Evans sat out the Bengals' preseason finale, but now that he's back on the field, the 2021 sixth-rounder will look to secure a change-of-pace role behind top back Joe Mixon. Also in the mix for complementary touches out of the Bengals' backfield are rookie Chase Brown and Trayveon Williams (ankle), but if Evans ends up absorbing a good chunk of the team's third-down duties, he could gain fantasy utility in deeper PPR formats.
