The Bengals announced yesterday theywere granted an exemption from the NFL for Evans to participate in team activities without counting against the 53-player roster. The exemption expires this Friday, Nov. 1, due to the Bengals playing on Thursday night this week, but they won’t even hold him that long.
Evans has completed an eight-week NFL suspension (Games 1-8) for violation of league policy on performance-enhancing substances. He could be activated to the roster at the team’s option at any time during the exemption.
