Lee Evans will play on Sunday

When Ravens receiver Lee Evans was spotted in a walking boot earlier this week it looked like he might not be able to play Sunday against the Titans.

Things are looking better as the game gets closer, however. Evans has been a full participant in practice each of the last two days and John Harbaugh proclaimed him ready to go during his conversation with the media on Friday.

“He’s rehabbing it. He’s going to play,” Harbaugh said. “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.”

If Evans does play on Sunday, he’ll have a chance for his first catch as a member of the Ravens. They looked his way four times during the win over the Steelers, but Evans didn’t come away with any catches.

    Maybe the Bills were smart by getting rid of Evans.

    Evans spent the day stretching out the Steelers D, opening up lanes for some great plays by the TEs…and the threat of him going deep kept them from having an extra guy to double up on Boldin, who was able to work Ike Taylor all afternoon. If that keeps happening all year Evans will be worth his contract even if he never catches that first pass.

    To all the Bills fans flipping out over the Evans trade:

    # of receivers that caught a ball besides Stevie Johnson against the Chiefs: 6

    # of passes Evans caught: 0

    Nuff said.

    If you know football he doesn’t have to catch the ball. He allows everyone else to do that. Dummies!!!

    @ idiot bills fans

    Read the article, he’s playing, when you have anquan Boldin, lee Evans doesn’t need to touch the ball. You guys suck, but awesome job against the chefs, that was awesome

    Evans can run one pattern a fly. He will not run anything inside or any comebacks. If that helps boldin then good for the ravens but he wasn’t worth the 3 something million to the bills. But don’t worry raven fans will see his one dimensional game and become as frustrated as bills fans were.

    OK, you Bills fans aren’t picking this up, so I’ll type it in caps: WE GOT HIM BECAUSE HE RUNS FLY PATTERNS!!!!!! That’s what the offense has been missing for years. Because he runs the fly pattern and can catch the deep ball, defenders have to follow him. That opens up the middle of the field. It’s not rocket science, but then again we are dealing with Western New York here.
