Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was suspended after fighting with New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore in Week 9. On Tuesday, Evans’ one-game suspension was officially upheld by the NFL.

Since then, Evans has issued this statement of apology for his actions in last Sunday’s game.

Evans shoved Lattimore down to the ground in an incident that involved quarterback Jameis Winston on the sidelines (watch). The scuffle was one of a few player fights that broke out during last Sunday’s slate of games.

Though, Evans was the only player suspended for his actions. He will miss this Sunday’s game at home against the New York Jets as the team fights to improve on its 2-6 record.
