Darrynton Evans: Joins Miami's practice squad
Evans signed with the Dolphins' practice squad Thursday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
Evans spent training camp with the Bills competing for the No. 3 running back spot against Ty Johnson and Latavius Murray. The 2020 third-round pick out of Appalachian State will now spend the beginning of the 2023 season on the Dolphins' practice squad and await an opportunity to be called up to the main roster....

Bills' Darrynton Evans: Getting let go
Evans was waived by the Bills on Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Evans came aboard when the team lost Nyheim Hines (knee) for the season, but ultimately, the 25-year-old Evans was unable to push past Ty Johnson and Latavius Murray for the team's No. 3 running back spot. He'll now have to seek out a chance with another franchise.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Darrynton Evans: Adds depth to Buffalo RB corps
The Bills have signed Evans, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
Evans provides the Bills with added backfield depth in the wake of Nyheim Hines having sustained a knee injury that is expected to sideline him this season. James Cook, Damien Harris and Latavius Murray currently head the team's running back corps, so Evans doesn't have a clear path to steady carries, but the 2020 third-rounder does at least have a chance to absorb some of the change-of-pace work that Hines was slated to handle....

Darrynton Evans: Loses roster spot
Evans was waived by the Colts on Tuesday.
Evans just signed with the team in March. The 24-year-old appeared in six games for the Bears last season, recording 14 carries for 64 yards and a catch for 33 yards on his only target. A third-round pick of the Titans in 2020, he'll now look for a new opportunity elsewhere.... See More ... See Less
Colts' Darrynton Evans: Inking deal with Indy
The Colts are slated to sign Evans, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com 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.... See More ... See Less
Darrynton Evans: Working out for Indianapolis
The Colts are hosting Evans for a tryout Friday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com 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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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 ProFootballNetwork.com 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.... See More ... See Less
