Evans may finally be ready for Ravens

When the Baltimore Ravens traded for receiver Lee Evans, they thought they were getting another weapon for Joe Flacco in the passing game.

What they have gotten thus far is a receiver, who has missed the past seven games with an ankle injury.

Evans says he feels good and is close to returning to the lineup.

"We'll make a determination later in the week," Evans told Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times. "Last week was real positive. So, this week could be even better and I'll have a real shot. You can see how it responds throughout the week. I'm optimistic about this week. It has been tough, but you go through different things throughout a season and a career. This is just another obstacle. Hopefully, we're on the tail end of it and we can put it behind us."

The Ravens will need Evans for the stretch run if they are to steer clear of Cincinnati and Pittsburgh to win the AFC North.
