EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Fred Evans received a two-game suspension Tuesday from the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy during a pair of offseason problems.
Evans was arrested twice this summer while he was on Miami's roster, for marijuana possession in Texas and for fighting with police in Florida.
He will not be paid and is required to sit out this week and next, before he's eligible to return to the active roster on Monday, Dec. 10. Signed during training camp after being cut by the Dolphins in June, Evans has stayed out of trouble in Minnesota but made little impact with Pro Bowl players at both of the tackle spots in Kevin Williams and Pat Williams.
Originally drafted in the seventh round by Miami in 2006, Evans has been active for eight of the Vikings' 11 games, recording five tackles, one sack and two quarterback hurries.
Players have the day off and coaches and executives are typically unavailable for comment on Tuesdays. A Vikings spokesman didn't immediately return phone calls.
