The NFL suspended Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson four games without pay for repeated violations of the player safety rules, the league announced Monday, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Jackson illegally hit Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joshua Dobbs during Sunday night’s game, and the NFL reviewed the play Monday. He is appealing his latest four-game ban, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter. This is Jackson’s second suspension for an illegal hit this season.
Jackson was playing in his first contest after serving a two-game suspension, the result of being ejected for the second time this year in Week 7. His punishment was initially a four-game ban before a successful appeal.
