Rashaan Evans will be listed with a hamstring injury, has a chance to work beyond position drills Wednesday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans rookie inside linebacker Rashaan Evans will be listed Wednesday on the team’s first injury report with a hamstring issue, which is what has bothered him since the third day of camp.

The expectation at team headquarters is that the 22nd pick from the draft will go through stretch and positional work at the start of practice and could advance to some work in team periods if he responds well.


But there is no indication as Tennessee starts practices focused exclusively on the game plan for Sunday’s matchup with the Dolphins in Miami as to whether Evans can do enough to be part of the defense at Hard Rock Stadium.

The Titans are sure to start Wesley Woodyard at one inside linebacker spot.

With Evans having a week’s work, at best, the other spot seems most likely to go to a platoon of Will Compton, who’s regarded as being best against the run, and Jayon Brown, who worked as a passing-down specialist in 2017 as a rookie.

It’s also possible Brown would be looked to in the second spot, playing most of the time there.
