The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made it official today, wide receiver Mike Evans is off the Covid list and activated to the 53-man roster. Evans was seen catching balls on the side yesterday, Friday he was back practicing with the team. No official word if Evans will play Sunday, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.
Good news for Mike Evans and his chances of playing Sunday in Bucs' game at Jets. Still coming back from hamstring injury. Bradley Pinion goes on reserve/COVID-19 list, so Sterling Hofrichter will handle punting duties again this week. https://t.co/aCApGLd52p
