WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Redskins safety Tanard Jackson has again been suspended indefinitely, without pay, for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, the team announced Wednesday.

In May, Jackson had been reinstated by the league after missing the duration of the last two regular seasons, serving a previous indefinite suspension, which he was also given for violating the league’s substance abuse policy in 2012.

Jackson, who last played a regular season game on Jan. 1, 2012 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, had been promptly released from the Redskins after his last reinstatement, then subsequently re-signed by the team, with the stipulation by Redskins general manager Bruce Allen, that he’d have to comply with “a lot of rules and regulations” in order to maintain his NFL eligibility.
