Evans, a fourth-round draft pick from UCLA, will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
Head coach Rex Ryan indicated recently that he expected Evans to wind up on IR. He becomes the second draft pick to have a season-ending injury. Third-round cornerback Dexter McDougle tore an ACL in practice and is awaiting surgery.
