After using a gay slur on a ballboy during a game last week, Houston Dynamo midfielder Colin Clark will be suspended for three games. Clark was seen on video saying it to the ballboy. 

He would later apologize on Twitter. 

"I believe that he will learn from this incident," MLS commissioner Don Garber said.

 Clark is in his seventh season in the league and in his second with Houston. 

"First of all, I want to apologize for what I did during the Seattle match. I had a chance to speak to the ball boy after the game," Clark said. "I'm sorry to everyone who I offended with that term. I intend to never use that word again in any context. There's absolutely no excuse for using that word.

"What I said doesn't represent me. It was out of character and out of line. I made a huge mistake by using those words, and I truly regret that."
