The NFL on Monday announced the Buccaneers wide receiver has been suspended one game without pay for unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Saints.

Then out of nowhere, Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans came flying in and jumped into Lattimore's back, shoving him hard and knocking him face-first into the Superdome turf.

"Your conduct clearly did not reflect the high standards of sportsmanship expected of a professional", the National Football League wrote in a letter to Evans.

Evans finished the game with one reception for 13 yards.

He said he was telling Lattimore to go to his sideline, and that Evans responded when "Marshon Lattimore pushed his quarterback".
