Evans suspended for hit on Saints' Lattimore

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans has been suspended one game after he blind-sided New Orleans Saints defensive back Marshon Lattimore following a testy exchange between Lattimore and Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston on Sunday. The officials did not eject anyone from the contest. The play was ruled a personal foul but Evans, inexplicably, wasn't ejected for his actions.

Evans will miss next weekend's game against the New York Jets.

After what happened in Week 9, though, that's not enough for coach Sean Payton.

"I let my emotions get the best of me", Evans said, per the Tampa Bay Times.

Evans then leveled Lattimore from behind.

Lewerke, a first-year starter, finished the day 33 of 56 with 400 yards as he gashed the Nittany Lions all day long. Penn State's Trace McSorley is second in the Big Ten in total offense averaging 297 yards per game.

"If there's not an ejection in that situation then I don't know when there's supposed to be an ejection", he said after the game.

And that's not the only thing Payton had to say after the Saints beat up on the Bucs. "I thought [Lattimore] was picking a fight with my quarterback". I don't play that, so I had to retaliate. Then Evans flew in for the tackle.

Evans will appeal the suspension, a source told ESPN's Jenna Laine. "That goes against everything you would want your team to stand for". That was kind of malicious.

As Lattimore was walking away, Winston foolishly poked him in the back of the helmet. "I reacted too quick".
