Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans did not practice Monday due to an apparent leg injury.

The Tampa Bay Times said the two-time Pro Bowl selection grabbed his left leg after catching a deep ball during Sunday’s practice.

Evans played a total of 20 snaps in the Bucs’ first two preseason contests, but his availability for Friday’s game against the Cleveland Browns is in question.

Evans, who turns 26 on Wednesday, is coming off his fifth consecutive 1,000-yard season. He broke the single-season Tampa Bay record with 1,524 receiving yards in 2018.

Named to the Pro Bowl in 2016 and 2018, the 2014 first-round draft pick (seventh overall) signed a five-year, $82.5 million extension in March 2018.
