DT Evans suspended

Defensive tackle Fred Evans has been suspended for two games by the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Evans, who has five tackles in eight games as a backup this season, will miss Sunday's game against Detroit and the Dec. 9 game at San Francisco.

He signed with the Vikings on Aug. 12 after being released by the Miami Dolphins following two offseason incidents.

Evans was arrested in May for misdemeanor marijuana possession in Texas and was sentenced to three days in jail and fined $2,000.

He was arrested in June in Miami Beach, Fla., after scuffling with police and paid $1,310 in fines and was sentenced to two years of deferred adjudication.

Evans had hoped to avoid suspension, but today's announcement marked the end of the appeals process.
