Bucs WR Mike Evans (back) returns to practice

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans returned to practice Friday after missing two days with a back injury.

Evans experienced back tightness following Monday night’s 30-10 win against the New York Giants.

The Buccaneers (7-3) hope to have him on the field Sunday when they visit the Indianapolis Colts (6-5), particularly since fellow wideout Antonio Brown (ankle) has not practiced all week.

Evans, 28, is tied for the NFL lead with 10 touchdown catches in 10 games this season. The three-time Pro Bowl selection ranks second on the Bucs in receptions (47) and receiving yards (679) behind Chris Godwin.
