Mike Evans suspended for hit on Marshon Lattimore

NFL hands down suspension after illegal hit on Lattimore

(WVUE) - Mike Evans has been suspended without pay for one game for violations of unsportsmanlike conduct for his hit on Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore.

Evans only received a personal foul penalty for the hit on Sunday. Coach Sean Payton was asked after the contest what should happen to Evans.

"(I didn't see) a lot good. I know it went to New York to look at. If there's not an ejection in that situation than I don't know when there's supposed to be one. (Mike Evans) was a little angry," said Payton.

NFL Vice President of Football Operations Jon Runyan in his letter to Evans wrote:“During the third quarter, after a play had ended, you struck an unsuspecting opponent in the back, knocking him to the ground. Your conduct clearly did not reflect the high standards of sportsmanship expected of a professional.”
