Evans took a hit at the end of the first quarter from Illinois’ Stanley Green, losing his helmet and the ball in the process. He walked off the field under his own power, then went to the locker room for concussion testing.
Harbaugh said “we’ll see” when asked if Evans would play this Saturday at Michigan State, but did add that he’s “doing good.”
Harbaugh on RB Chris Evans: "We'll see." …
"Anything like that is ruled a concussion. I think he’s doing good."
