Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans will not be on the field this week after he was suspended by the National Football League for a hit on a New Orleans Saints player.

The Buccaneers were in the middle of getting blown out by New Orleans when Evans blindsided a Saints player who was exchanging words with quarterback Jameis Winston.

Just minutes after A.J. Green's takedown of Jalen Ramsey in the Cincinnati Bengals-Jacksonville Jaguars game, there was a feisty showdown in the NFL South matchup between Tampa Bay and New Orleans.

Evans finished the game with one reception for 13 yards. Coach Sean Payton was asked after the contest what should happen to Evans. The rookie cornerback then responded by shoving Winston, which prompted Evans to hit Lattimore directly in the back. Then Evans flew in for the tackle.

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

Lattimore turned to Winston and shoved him before Evans delivered a blow he said was "kind of malicious".

"I get it. They're frustrated", Lattimore said.

"My first instinct was to go help my teammate, even though I've been knowing [Evans] since Texas A&M days", said Saints CB De'Vante Harris, who knocked Evans off Lattimore.

"If I would have known what I know [now], Mike probably should have been ejected". Unprofessional. ... I want to play. "But I reacted too quick".
