Rust not a concern for Evans

Ravens wideout says left ankle held up, wants to play vs. 49ers

November 21, 2011|By Edward Lee

No one would to take issue with Lee Evans feeling a little bit rusty in the Ravens’ 31-24 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, his first game since Sept. 18 against the Tennessee Titans.

But the wide receiver isn’t buying into that theory.

“I guess you can look at it that way,” Evans said after being targeted just one time and being unable to register a catch in the team's 31-24 win against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. “Anytime you’re out on the field though, you have an opportunity to make plays, and you’ve got to make them. So I was prepared mentally for it – however it went. I’m just glad we got the win.”

Evans had sat out seven consecutive games with a left ankle injury before practicing last week on a limited basis. Evans said the ankle held up well with no setbacks.

Asked if he thinks he’ll be able to make the quick turnaround to play against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night, Evans said, “Yeah, no doubt. I think I’ll be ready to play, and it should be an exciting game. It’s on Thanksgiving, so everybody will be watching. So it should be a lot of fun.”
