So does this mean Evans isn't healthy? I can't see us carrying 2 FBs...?

Too bad if that's the case. We missed Evans badly, and I was excited to get him back this year.

Man oh man, I hope Evans is going to be healthy for the season. He really is a key contributor to the Saints. Maybe his recovery time will be longer than expected and we are bringing him in as insurance to learn the system. Either way I don't see Payton carrying 2 fullbacks on the roster. However, I wouldn't be surprised to see them bring in an UDFA who we could stash on the practice squad to bring up if necessary.
