Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson spoke to the media Monday following his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving Saturday morning, apologizing to his teammates and fans.

“I sincerely apologize for the attention that I have brought to the fans, community and myself,” Simpson said.

Simpson couldn't speak on the situation, nor on any future disciplinary action from the NFL. The team’s leader in receiving yards (491) said he spoke to the entire team on the distraction.

“I’ve just got great support with this team, and they’re going to help with whatever arises,” Simpson said.
Simpson said he expects to play Sunday against the Seahawks in Seattle. He didn't give a reason when asked, and Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier wasn't certain if Simpson would suit up.
