Redskins safety Tanard Jackson has once again been suspended indefinitely by the NFL for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
The team issued a statement from an NFL spokesperson announcing the news Wednesday afternoon.
Jackson in May received reinstatement from the league after he missed the past two seasons while serving an indefinite suspension as a repeat offender, as in 2012 he failed multiple tests for marijuana use.
Jackson signed with Washington in 2012 but never played a game because of his drug suspension. He has played five NFL seasons, all with the Buccaneers. While with Tampa in 2010, Jackson was suspended indefinitely for violating the substance-abuse policy and missed all but two games that season. He also missed six games in 2011. In 2009, he was suspended for drug use and missed four games.
Jackson in May claimed to have learned his lesson and said that he knew he had likely used up all his second chances.
He claimed to have changed his lifestyle and that working in a warehouse the past two years served as plenty of motivation to stay out of trouble.
