Now, the wide receiver has grabbed a spot on the sideline.
Evans was wearing a walking boot on his left foot today, and did not participate in practice.
Reporters met with head coach John Harbaugh prior to today’s practice, so the severity of Evans’ injury is unclear.
The eight-year veteran did not appear to be in any pain following Thursday’s game against the Redskins, and he fielded questions from reporters while standing upright without any sign of an injury.
It’s hard to imagine the Ravens would let Evans stand and watch practice if his injury was anything serious, but that’s all the injury speculation I’m willing to do.
Evans, who was acquired from the Bills in a trade two weeks ago, has said that he’s still working on improving his chemistry with quarterback Joe Flacco, and is trying to get comfortable in the Ravens’ offensive system.
“It’s still a work in progress,” Evans said Thursday of his rapport with Flacco. “That’s what we come to practice for every day. We try to get better at something every day, and we’re still trying to get a feel for each other doing things.
“I pretty much know the offense, and it’s just getting comfortable now. You know, as we work through this game and get ready for the regular season, things will be tuned-down a little bit and be a little bit more specific. But, that part of it is good. Now, it’s just about gradually learning the offense as a whole instead of one position.”
