Until recently, we knew Saints guard Jahri Evans wasn’t able to play during the 2015 Pro Bowl, but now we know why. Evans had a partially torn ligament in his wrist.
The Saints suffered a disappointing season this year, going 7-in-9. However, Evans, even after sustaining an injury that was certain to cause him pain, was still selected as a 1st team All-Pro.
Evans, a 31 year-old, may take additional time to heal due to his relatively old age as a professional athlete.
With a base salary of $6.8 million (part of the highest paid guard tandem in the league) he is at risk of either taking a pay cut or being released as the Saints attempt to bring in new, younger talent.
