Coach Bruce Arians had said Evans' status would depend on his level of soreness after testing his hamstring as a limited participant during Friday's practice.
He did not appear to be favoring one leg during the portion of practice that was open to media.
Evans missed three games with a hamstring injury last season but still finished with 67 catches for 1,157 yards and eight touchdowns.
Arians said he does not believe this is the same leg Evans injured last season.
The Buccaneers called up wide receiver Cyril Grayson from the practice squad Saturday. Grayson has one career NFL catch after playing two games for Tampa Bay in 2019
