Washington Redskins safety Tanard Jackson has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Jackson missed the past two seasons as the result of previous suspensions. He was reinstated in May and the Redskins re-signed him to a one-year contract the following day.
“It was difficult,’’ Jackson told The Tampa Tribune earlier this week of his two-year absence. “You can imagine somebody getting taken away from something that they love to do and having to humble themselves after doing something wrong. That was me. I had to take responsibility for it and face the consequences.’’
This latest infraction is at least the fourth of Jackson's troubled career.
