RB - TEN
Week 12 Outlook
Titans RB Darrynton Evans is being placed on short-term IR Thursday with a hamstring injury.
Evans hasn't been a factor in the Titans offense to this point, so look for them to continue to feed the BEAST (Derrick Henry that it). Evans' backup Jeremy McNichols looked solid in his absence, but he also did not practice Wednesday with a rib injury. Evans should be held onto in deeper leagues as a potential injury handcuff.
Darrynton Evans was forced out of Tuesday's game versus the Bills with a hamstring injury, Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone Nashville reports.
Evans rushed for 12 yards on two carries before exiting the game. There have been no updates on the status of the rookie running back but if he misses time look for Jeremy McNichols to move into the backup role behind Derrick Henry.
Darrynton Evans carried three times for nine yards on Sunday as the Titans beat the Vikings by a 31-30 score on Sunday in Week 3 action.
Evans missed Tennessee's first two games with a hamstring injury but was able to make his NFL debut on Sunday. The rookie third-rounder will not see much playing time behind Derrick Henry and does not have any fantasy value.
Titans rookie RB Darrynton Evans has been ruled out for Week 1 due to a hamstring injury.
Evans was a limited participant in practice throughout the week, and it looks like the rookie will need more time to recover. Evans' absence is excellent news for Derrick Henry owners as he'll likely take on more work in the passing game against the Broncos on Monday night.
Peter King of NBC Sports cites a source who says Titans rookie RB Darrynton Evans "has a chance to be a poor man's Alvin Kamara."
Reports on Evans have been a bit all over during training camp. He missed time with an undisclosed injury and has also had some fumbling issues recently. Still, the Titans appears to like Evans, and there's a natural fit for him with Derrick Henry not being much of a pass-catcher. Tennessee's depth chart is severely lacking behind Henry and Evans, so the rookie could wind up playing significant snaps early on.
