Harbaugh: Lee Evans "is going to play"

Rest easy, Ravens fans.

While Lee Evans might be a little dinged up, head coach John Harbaugh says the speedy wide receiver is going to play this Sunday against the Titans.

Evans appeared at Wednesday's practice with his left foot/ankle in the same protective boot that he wore back in the fourth week of preseason, but he had a full practice yesterday, participated again in today's session and is on track to suit up against Tennessee o Sunday.

"He's rehabbing it," Harbaugh said. "He's going to play. Obviously, I hope it's going to continue to get better. He's got a little pain in his foot, but it's not anything he can hurt any worse by playing or practicing.

"We're monitoring it, working it. He's got some orthotics; that should help a little bit. He should be OK."

Evans played the entire game last weekend against the Steelers, but didn't record a reception despite being targeted four times. The former Bills wideout, who was acquired in a trade during camp, said yesterday that wearing the boot earlier in the week was a precautionary measure and he fully planned on getting back on the field against Tennessee.

"Absolutely, I plan on playing on Sunday," Evans said. "But we'll have to see. You've got to take it day by day and see what happens."
