Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said Friday that wide receiver Mike Evans left practice early after tweaking his hamstring, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Evans reached his fourth Pro Bowl in 2021 after catching 114 passes for 1,035 yards and 14 touchdowns. Since entering the NFL in 2014, he has yet to finish with fewer than 1,000 receiving yards.
Toward the end of the campaign, the Bucs needed Evans to assume an even larger role after Chris Godwin suffered a torn ACL and Antonio Brown unexpectedly left the team. In Tampa Bay's two playoff games, he caught 17 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns, exceeding his production from the team's Super Bowl run in 2020.
