Mike Evans Out 2-3 Weeks

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got their first win thanks to a dramatic last second touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However they received some bad news. The Bucs will be without their rookie WR Mike Evans for 2-3 weeks due to a groin injury. Tampa has a bye in week 7 so Evans will likely return in week 8.

Vincent Jackson who has been a huge disappointment should see his targets sky rocket with the absence of Evans, but defenses could focus their game plan on shutting Jackson down. Louis Murphy, Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Russell Shepard should see an increase in playing time as well.
