Shaq Evans has a shoulder injury. ...McDougle (groin), Bilal (hammy) + Pryor DNP.— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) August 1, 2014
I worry more about Shaq Evans than I do about Decker as counterintuitive as it might sound. Sure, Decker is learning a new playbook and has to develop chemistry with new quarterbacks, but he is an established player. You can count on him being ready for the season.
For a guy like Evans who looks increasingly unlikely to make much of an impact this year, these camp reps represent some of the best chances he will have to learn and develop.
If you are counting at home, that makes four of the top five picks in the Draft who have been a little banged up thus far in camp.
