  • 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.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Finds end zone

    Evans rushed eight times for 39 yards and a touchdown while catching two passes for seven yards in the Bears' 27-11 preseason win over the Seahawks' on Thursday.

    Evans got into the game after both Khalil Herbert and Trestan Ebner saw action. At that point, Evans and Ebner rotated series until Ebner left with an ankle injury. Evans saw work as late as the fourth quarter. He had his best production when seeing four straight carries that resulted in the Bears moving the chains. He'll likely remain in a battle with Evans for the No. 3 running back role.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Sees significant work

    Evans rushed seven times for 20 yards and caught three of six targets for six yards in the Bears' 19-14 win over the Chiefs on Sunday.

    Evans is primarily competing with sixth-round draft choice Trestan Ebner for the No. 3 running back role behind David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. Although Evans saw a lot of work in the preseason opener, his production paled in comparison to Ebner's, who was effective as both a runner and receiver. The next two weeks could settle this training camp battle.

  • Bears' Darrynton Evans: Battling for third-string role

    Evans' running style fits the scheme the Bears are putting in place as he competes for a role behind David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert, Brendan Sugrue of USA Today reports.

    Evans' main competition for the third-string role is this year's sixth-round draft choice Trestan Ebner. However, when the Bears claimed Evans off waivers, they took on the last two years of his rookie deal. Although that's a small financial investment, it could indicate the team is hopeful he'll carve out a role on the roster. For fantasy, he would likely need Montgomery or Herbert to miss time while Evans earns a depth chart spot ahead of Ebner to have weekly fantasy value.
