Ravens expect veteran receiver Evans to return “pretty quick”

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — With the Ravens finally healthy on the offensive line, the sight of veteran receiver Lee Evans in a walking boot on Saturday had to cause some frustration with the coaching staff.

The 30-year-old wideout missed his second straight practice on Monday, creating doubt whether he’ll play in the Ravens’ preseason finale in Atlanta on Thursday. However, the mere sight of Evans walking around and standing on the injured left foot during Saturday’s practice has led most to believe the injury is nothing serious.

“He’s in meetings,” offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said. “He’s bouncing around pretty good. I don’t know the exact timetable, but we’d like to think he’s going to be back pretty quick.”

Evans was not present during the portion of practice open to the media on Monday afternoon.

In 2010, the former Buffalo receiver missed the final three games with a left ankle injury. The boot sported by Evans on Saturday was being worn on the same foot.
