  • Colts' Darrynton Evans: Inking deal with Indy

    The Colts are slated to sign Evans, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Evans, who worked out for Indianapolis early Friday morning, has since reportedly received a contract to suit up for the team in 2023. The 24-year-old running back is heading into his fourth year in the NFL and is now in line to play for his third different team following his two-season tenure with the Titans and a one-year stint in Chicago. Evans will presumably compete for a roster spot with Deon Jackson, Jake Funk and Aaron Shampklin behind top backfield options Jonathan Taylor and Zack Moss.

  • Darrynton Evans: Working out for Indianapolis

    The Colts are hosting Evans for a tryout Friday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Evans, a 2020 third-round pick of the Titans, garnered 64 yards on 13 carries with the Bears last season, but became an unrestricted free agent back in March. Indianapolis already has Zack Moss and Deon Jackson present as depth behind Jonathan Taylor (ankle), but Evans' experience in the kick return game could help his chances of earning an opportunity.

  • Darrynton Evans: Will be an unrestricted free agent

    Chicago didn't extend Evans a qualifying offer or tender as a restricted free agent Wednesday, so he's officially an unrestricted free agent, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Evans appeared in six games for the Bears in 2022, totaling 14 rushing attempts for 64 yards and securing his lone target for 33 yards. The 2020 third-round pick has previous experience as a kick-return man during his time in Tennessee, which should increase his value as a free agent this summer.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Inactive in Week 18

    Evans ended the season with 14 carries for 64 yards along with one reception for 33 yards over six games played.

    Evans saw his first offensive snaps of the season in Week 11, while Khalil Herbert was on injured reserve. During the five games he was in the running back rotation, he topped out at 18 snaps and handled a total of 14 carries in five games. He's now a restricted free agent.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Minimal usage in loss

    Evans rushed twice for nine yards in the Bears' 25-20 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

    After handling 10 touches in Week 12, Evans has a total of five touches in the two games since that time. With Khalil Herbert (hip) nearing a return, Evans could see his role diminish even further as he'd likely move back to the No. 3 running back role.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Minor role in loss

    Evans rushed three times for 21 yards in the Bears' 28-19 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

    After handling 10 touches last week against the Jets, Evans was used very sparingly against Green Bay, and his inconsistent usage through two games will make him tough to consider as a reliable fantasy option in the near future.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Gets 10 touches in Week 12 loss

    Evans rushed nine times for 34 yards and caught his only target for 33 yards in Sunday's 31-10 loss to the Jets.

    Evans outraced C.J. Mosley around the corner for a 33-yard gain after catching a pass over the middle on Chicago's opening drive, but that was his only target, and the practice-squad elevation failed to get much going on the ground. After using Evans as the only change-of-pace option behind David Montgomery, the Bears will likely add Evans to the roster again for their Week 13 game against the Packers.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Promoted to active roster again

    The Bears elevated Evans from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of a Week 12 clash against the Jets.

    Evans was also elevated ahead of last week's loss to Atlanta, but he played only two offensive snaps and didn't receive a touch or a target. The third-year back also logged six special-teams snaps and figures to fill a similar role this week. Chicago will likely again go with David Montgomery and Trestan Ebner as its top two ball carriers Sunday.

  • Darrynton Evans: Bumps back down to practice squad

    Evans reverted to the Bears' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Evans was elevated from Chicago's practice squad for the second time this season ahead of Sunday's loss to Atlanta. However, the 24-year-old running back once failed to record an offensive statistic, as he played six of his eight snaps on special teams Week 11. Evans will now be eligible for one game-day activation before requiring a full spot on the active roster in order to suit up again for the Bears in 2022.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Moves up to active roster

    Evans was elevated to the Bears' active roster Saturday.

    Evans got the call-up in early October when David Montgomery was sidelined, but Saturday's designation will likely help provide depth at running back with Khalil Herbert (hip) on injured reserve. Trestan Ebner figures to be the team's No. 2 back on paper, although it's possible Evans sees more offensive work if the team chooses to take a committee approach with the backup spot.

  • Darrynton Evans: Back to practice squad

    Evans reverted to the Bears' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Evans got the bump up to the active roster with David Montgomery (ankle) sidelined Sunday against the Giants. Operating as the team's No. 3 running back, Evans never saw the field on offense, but he did log 10 snaps on special teams. If Montgomery is unable to go in Week 5 against the Vikings, Evans may get another opportunity on the active roster.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Elevated by Bears

    Evans has been elevated to the Bears' active roster ahead of their Week 4 matchup with the Giants, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    With David Montgomery (ankle) sidelined, Evans has been called up to help provide depth at running back. Khalil Herbert is expected to see the lion's share of the workload, but Evans will be available to back him up alongside Trestan Ebner.

  • Darrynton Evans: Added to Bears' practice squad

    Evans was among the 14 players signed to Chicago's practice squad Wednesday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

    Evans spent the previous two seasons with the Titans but logged only six combined appearances. Tennessee's 2020 third-round pick may well be first in line to be elevated should injuries strike in Chicago's backfield, which consists of David Montgomery, Khalil Herbert and Trestan Ebner (ankle).

  • Darrynton Evans: Waived by Chicago

    The Bears waived Evans on Tuesday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

    Evans saw significant work throughout the preseason, totaling 19 rushes for 77 yards and a score while catching six passes for 27 yards, but he still finds himself among a wave of cuts ahead of Tuesday's 53-man roster deadline. The 2020 third-round pick has only appeared in six career games across two seasons in Tennessee, but he'll have to look for a new opportunity after his stint in Chicago was cut short.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Five touches in win

    Evans rushed four times for 18 yards and posted a 14-yard reception in the Bears' 21-20 win against the Browns on Saturday.

    With Trestan Ebner (ankle) missing the game, Evans entered the contest with the backups late in the first half. He left the game with an undisclosed injury but returned in the fourth quarter. He's been battling with Ebner for the No. 3 running back role this summer, but if the Bears keep four running backs, he would appear to be in line to make the regular-season roster if he's unable to pass Ebner on the depth chart.
