The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have chosen star-wide receiver Mike Evans OUT for the remainder of Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons

Evans suffered an apparent left knee injury and was unable to put any weight on it after the game. Bucs’ quarterback Tom Brady aimed at Evans in the end zone over the middle of the field, and Evans seemed 24 seconds to go in the first quarter to slip

Evans’ left knee appeared to be overstretched, but the team didn’t say the exact injury beyond that was his knee. Evans tried to walk off the field on his own, but quickly fell to the ground in pain

After the coaches assessed the situation, Evans needed help walking cautiously to the sideline.Once outside the field, Evans drove a cart into the locker room

Evans became the first player in NFL history to score 1 for seven consecutive seasons000 yards or more to begin his career He passed Hall of Fame recipient Randy Moss, who did so for six consecutive seasons

Evans’ 8220 yards since 2014 rank third in the league, behind only Arizona’s DeAndre Hopkins and Julio Jones
