Mike Evans goes to locker room with ankle injury, returns at end of 1st quarter

The Bucs have lost Mike Evans to an injury in Week 4 as he is getting checked out in the locker room.

NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

2nd quarter update: Evans officially returned to the game.

UPDATE: Evans appears to be on track to return from his injury. The Bucs are on defense, but Evans is running on the sideline and has his helmet on.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are short-handed at wide receiver, and might be losing a little more depth. Mike Evans was tackled awkwardly in the first quarter of Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers and trainers are looking at his ankle. He has now gone to the locker room to get looked at further.

The Bucs are already without Chris Godwin, and Scott Miller is banged up coming into this game.
