Tampa Bay Buccaneer receiver Mike Evans has been suspended for one game, due to his actions in his last game.

In the Buccaneers game against New Orleans, Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston was taunting Marshon Lattimore. After Lattimore reacted by pushing Winston, former Texas A&M Aggie Mike Evans came rushing to Winstons side.

The NFL unsuprisingly suspended Mike Evans today and released the following statement.

The NFL will review the rest of any possible fines coming Evans’ way.

Evans is having a down year, as he has brought in 40 catches for 532 yards through eight games. The Buccaneers received this shortly after finding out Winston would be shut down for a few weeks. Evans is eligible to return after this weekends game with the New York Jets.
