Mike Evans injury: Buccaneers WR will play in NFC Wild Card game vs. Washington

Six days after hyperextending his left knee during Week 17, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans will give it a go on Saturday as his team faces the Washington Football Team in a NFC Wild Card round matchup. 

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians told ESPN on Saturday morning that Evans will be active. 

Evans left Sunday's contest against the Atlanta Falcons in the first quarter after his left leg became hyperextended while trying to catch a touchdown pass. He needed assistance to leave the field, but MRI results didn't show structural damage. 

On Thursday, Evans was a limited participant in practice and had been officially listed as questionable, leaving the door open for him to play Saturday.
