Tom Brady could be without one of his top weapons for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ season opener.

The Buccaneers listed Pro Bowl wide receiver Mike Evans as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints due to a hamstring injury.

Evans practiced in a limited capacity Friday after missing sessions on Wednesday and Thursday with what head coach Bruce Arians called a “soft-tissue” injury to his hamstring.

The 27-year-old hasn’t played in a game since Week 14 of last season. He caught a 61-yard touchdown but pulled up and missed the remainder of the campaign with a strained hamstring.

He finished the year with 1,157 yards and eight touchdowns.

Fellow receivers Chris Godwin, Justin Watson, and Scotty Miller would all move up the depth chart if Evans misses Sunday’s game, and tight ends Rob Gronkowski, Cameron Brate, and O.J. Howard would also likely see more action.
