NFL reinstates Redskins safety Jackson
ESPN 90+ SHARES
Washington Redskins safety Tanard Jackson will be reinstated by the NFL on Tuesday, the league announced.
Jackson received an indefinite suspension on Aug. 31, 2012 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Jackson had signed a one-year deal with Washington earlier that spring, and that deal was rolled over until the suspension was lifted so he remains under contract with the Redskins.
Jackson was on pace to start with Washington in 2012 had he not been suspended.
Jackson started 56 games with Tampa Bay, but was suspended twice for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
