Buccaneers WR Mike Evans suspended by National Football League for 1 game

In the middle of the Saints' 30-10 win vs. the Buccaneers, Saints rookie Marshon Lattimore and Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans got into a insane altercation. "Your conduct clearly did not reflect the high standards of sportsmanship expected of a professional".

It has just been announced by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Evans has been suspended by the NFL for one game as a result of his cheap shot on Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore. The suspension will go into effect this Sunday versus the Jets, meaning Evans' next chance to suit up is Sunday, Nov. 19 in Miami, though Evans can appeal.

The suspension will also cost Evans a game check. The play was ruled a personal foul but Evans, inexplicably, wasn't ejected for his actions. That's when Evans came sprinting in to absolutely level Lattimore, setting off a huge brawl in front of Tampa Bay's sideline. Then Evans flew in for the tackle.

Apparently, Winston didn't take too lightly a play that Lattimore made and he walked toward Lattimore and poked him in his helmet. Given how violent that hit was, an ejected would have been absolutely warranted. Then the Saints player responded and Mike reacted, and that's not acceptable either.

Evans is still allowed to appeal the suspension and that could delay the enforcement pending a ruling from either National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell or an independent arbitrator. That's not acceptable either.

Evans leads the Buccaneers with 40 catches and four touchdowns this season.
