Titans waived RB Darren Evans.
Evans, 24, was considered an intriguing early-down bruising back when he came out of Virginia Tech in 2011, but he went undrafted and has only appeared in three career games. Evans has yet to see a single carry in the NFL. Fri, Apr 19, 2013 05:20:00 PM

Titans placed RB Darren Evans (quadriceps) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Roster yo-yo OG Kyle DeVan was re-signed in a corresponding move. Evans was just promoted from the practice squad over the weekend and didn't play at Jacksonville. He's unlikely to be back with the Titans in 2013.

Titans signed RB Darren Evans from the practice squad and waived OL Kyle DeVan.

With No. 2 running back Jamie Harper (ankle) listed as questionable, Tennessee needs depth at the position. DeVan has been a roster yo-yo this season and has yet to play in a game.

Colts waived or released RBs Darren Evans and Deji Karim, WRs Jeremy Ross and Kashif Moore, TEs Andre Smith and Kyle Miller, OTs Mike Tepper and Steven Baker, C Zane Taylor, DTs Jason Shirley and Chigbo Anunoby, LBs Greg Lloyd and Jerry Brown, G Hayworth Hicks, Ss Latarrius Thomas and Mike Newton, DE James Aiono and CB Brandon King.

A power back, Evans never had much chance at earning a roster spot after the Colts spent a fifth-round pick on bruiser Vick Ballard. Evans gained just 58 yards on 24 preseason carries. A seventh-round pick of the Eagles last season, Lloyd was waived at final cuts before joining the active roster in November.

Colts signed RB Darren Evans to a reserve/future contract.

An undrafted rookie out of Virginia Tech, Evans spent two games on the Colts' active roster this season, but was held off the stat-sheet. A power-back who made a successful comeback from a torn ACL during his final year at VT, Evans carried the ball 25 times for 96 yards during the preseason.

Colts waived RB Darren Evans.

Not the greatest news for Donald Brown this week. The move suggests Joseph Addai (hamstring) will be able to contribute against the Panthers, though his role remains uncertain.
Tue, Nov 22, 2011 06:03:00 PM

Colts promoted RB Darren Evans from the practice squad.

Evans was waived three weeks ago. His re-signing could be an indication the Colts won't even activate Joseph Addai (hamstring) as an emergency back on Sunday. If Evans contributes, it will be on special teams.
Sat, Nov 12, 2011 03:13:00 PM

Colts waived RB Darren Evans.

Consider this more confirmation that Joseph Addai (hamstring, questionable) will play. Even though the Saints are ranked 30th in YPC allowed (5.12), Addai is not a recommended play coming back in the second week of what was thought to be a multi-week injury. The threat of a committee approach or an in-game setback just doesn't justify the potential upside, here.

Colts signed RB Darren Evans from their practice squad.

This is the surest sign yet that Joseph Addai's hamstring injury will keep him out of this week's game at Cincinnati. Evans will act as the third running back while Donald Brown and Delone Carter handle the majority of the workload.
Tue, Oct 11, 2011 05:36:00 PM

Coach Jim Caldwell said that RB Darren Evans will be signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Evans was waived on Tuesday to make room for S Stevie Brown. The Colts want to maintain depth at running back with Donald Brown inept and Joseph Addai in his decline phase.
Thu, Sep 22, 2011 09:39:00 AM

Colts waived RB Darren Evans.

Undrafted out of Virginia Tech, Evans gained notice early in camp when owner Jim Irsay suggested he was pushing fourth-rounder Delone Carter behind Joseph Addai. That wasn't the case. Evans didn't receive a single carry over the first two games.
Tue, Sep 20, 2011 05:48:00 PM

The Indianapolis Star believes undrafted rookie RB Darren Evans gave the Colts "something to consider" with his performance in their preseason opener.

Evans rushed for a team-high 52 yards on eight carries, though all but one of his rushing attempts came in the second half. Evans started over No. 38 overall pick Ryan Williams at Virginia Tech last year, so there is talent here. He's a player to watch in the Colts' backfield along with Delone Carter.
Sun, Aug 14, 2011 09:30:00 AM

Virginia Tech RB Darren Evans will forgo his senior season with the Hokies and enter the 2011 NFL draft.

A 6'0/220-pound power back, Evans looked on his way to stardom in a 1,265-rushing yard redshirt freshman season, before tearing his left ACL in 2009 fall practice and losing the gig to Ryan Williams. With Williams hobbled in 2010, Evans reemerged as the Hokies' lead back to average 5.7 yards per carry with 11 touchdowns. Evans offers little in the passing game, but is a middle-round prospect with some upside as an early-down bruiser.
