The Tennessee Titans are still waiting on Darrynton Evans’ breakout.
When training camp started the Tennessee Titans were lining Darrynton Evans up all over the place. He was in the backfield. He was in the slot. There was all of this talk about how he could be some offensive equivalent to the Swiss Army knife.
Then guys who weren’t at voluntary workouts started showing up to practice. Fast forward to the present, and much of that optimism that surrounded Mr. Evans seems to be evaporating. Where the heck has he been?
He’s back on the injured reserve. That’s where.
Two games are officially in the books for the Tennessee Titans, and after missing all but six games in 2020 (that includes a one-touch performance in last year’s playoff game), the second-year man has yet to take an offensive snap in a game that counts towards the team’s win-loss total.
Remember when people use to say things like ‘no man should lose his position due to an injury’? Well, we know that isn’t true, don’t we? Availability is a skill, one that Evans hasn’t showcased that often in his short career. As far as talent, we know he has that in abundance, but if he can’t get on the field, one has to begin asking questions about his value.
