Lee Evans logged in a full week of practice, but the wide receiver is not expected to return Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.
Coach John Harbaugh said Friday that while he has been encouraged by Evans’ progress from the left ankle injury that has shelved him for the past six contests, asking Evans to play at CenturyLink Field in Seattle under wet and cold conditions could be a bit much.
“I think it’s an outside chance right now,” Harbaugh said of Evans’ status for Sunday. “He’s still working through it. If we had a situation where we needed him, he could go.”
Evans has caught just two passes for 45 yards in two starts with the Ravens. In his absence, rookie Torrey Smith leads the team in receiving touchdowns (four) and ranks second and third in average yards per catch (19.9) and receiving yards (397), respectively.
