Mike Evans Injury: Updates on Texas A&M WR's Leg, Likely Return Date
Texas A&M avoided a potentially devastating injury after wide receiver Mike Evans appeared to injure his right leg in Saturday's game against Arkansas.
Tony Pauline of Draft Insider described how the sophomore got hurt:
Mike Evans/WR/Texas A&M made a heroic TD reception then limped off field with a seemingly bad lower leg injury; hope its not as bad as seems— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) September 29, 2013
Evans returned to the game before the first half ended.
UPDATE: Tuesday, Oct. 1
From Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News:
WR Mike Evans limping around, needs week off. LB Darian Claiborne (bruise) will be back. NG Kirby Ennis (knee) more serious.— Kate Hairopoulos (@khairopoulos) October 1, 2013
UPDATE: Saturday, Sept. 29

ESPN's Joe Schad provided more insight as to how it looked on the sideline:

Prior to the injury, Evans had five catches for 93 yards and two touchdowns before halftime against the Razorbacks. He scored on a lob into the end zone by Johnny Manziel, and the 6'5" receiver was able to come down with the ball.
Unfortunately, he landed awkwardly and could have seriously injured himself.
While Manziel has made more headlines for the Aggies, Evans is a huge part of the team's success. He finished his freshman season with 82 receptions for 1,105 yards and five touchdowns.
This year, he is well on his way toward becoming one of the best in the nation at his position. He had his best performance against Alabama, totaling 279 receiving yards against the top team in the country.
If he is out for a significant amount of time, Texas A&M would be in trouble offensively.
