Evans joined Derby from Championship rivals Reading in the summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old, who can operate as a midfielder or as a central defender, suffered a knee injury on his league debut for the Rams against Ipswich Town.
The youngster is on the mend, and the former Manchester City prospect is training with his Derby teammates, with some fans of the Championship club responding to his message on Twitter.

Evans is a very good player who is proven at the Championship, and his return to full fitness will excite the Derby fans.
With the Rams aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship this season, the former Reading star will be an important player for Frank Lampard's side in the coming weeks and months.
Derby manager Lampard spoke highly of Evans to the club’s official website in July 2018 and praised him for having “fantastic attributes”.
