The Buccaneers are placing safety Justin Evans on injured reserve, Greg Auman of TheAthletic.com reports.

Evans has had an Achilles issue since early August and was inactive Sunday. He is eligible to return Week 10.

He missed six games last season with a toe injury that landed him on injured reserve. Evans had toe surgery in June.

The Bucs started Darian Stewart and Jordan Whitehead at safety against the 49ers.

Tampa Bay will sign offensive tackle Josh Wells to take Evans’ roster spot.

Wells has played 39 games — all with the Jaguars — since coming into the league as an undrafted free agent in 2014.

Jacksonville cut him Aug. 30.

  1. That’s somewhat true, but not randomly cherry picking here. The 2017 Bucs needed a RB since Doug Martin had been bad the year before and was suspended to start the season. Plan was apparently to draft Dalvin Cook but OJ Howard fell so they picked him. Cook and Mixon were picked before Evans but Kamara, Juju and Kareem Hunt were still there. Picked Chris Godwin in 3rd, who I think is a fine pick even considering Hunt was still there. He has potential and seems to be emerging at least.

    Main point is Bucs record is since Licht became GM is 27-45 (33%), he has done a poor job drafting and signing FAs, is on his 3rd coach but he somehow got a 5 year extension. Makes no sense
