After a couple of days of missed practices, Mike Evans returned to the practice field on Friday but is officially doubtful dor the Buccaneers season opener against the Saints on Sunday in New Orleans.

He missed the final three games of 2019 with a hamstring injury but coach Bruce Arians doesn’t believe this current injury is related. Arians called Evans a game-time decision.

“He did some individual stuff today,” Arians said on Friday. “We’ll see if he’s sore tomorrow, but he’ll probably be a game-time decision.”

In two losses to the Saints a year ago, Evans had just four receptions for 69 yards and no touchdowns. If Evans is unable to go on Sunday, quarterback Tom Brady will have to look elsewhere among the Bucs stable of offensive weapons. Rob Gronkowksi, already in line for a big game given his familiarity with Brady, may see his role increase in Evans’ absence.
