Evans was suspended following his actions in Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. He rushed over Saints corner Marshon Lattimore when Lattimore was talking trash to Tom Brady.
Players from both sides of the altercation were ejected, but Evans said after the game that he doesn’t feel he should have been suspended.
Brady came to his teammates’ defense, calling the decision to suspend his No.1 wide receiver ‘ridiculous’.

The Buccaneers will face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon, and if Evans is unable to play, the Bucs will be missing a large part of their offense.
Tampa wideout Chris Godwin has been sidelined by a hamstring injury as he works his way back from ACL surgery, and Julio Jones has been hampered by a knee injury.
If Evans’ suspension holds, Green Bay’s secondary might secretly do a happy dance as they get a much easier afternoon.
