TAMPA - According to reports from PewterReport and ESPN's Adam Schefter, the NFL has suspended Buccaneers safety Tanard Jackson for at least one season, for violating the league's Substance Abuse Program.
This would be Jackson's second offense as he began last season serving a four-game suspension for violating the same policy.
The suspension will be in effect until Sept. 21, 2011, so Jackson would miss the first two games of next season as well. Jackson's has started every game for the Buccaneers since being drafted and will give way to two young inexperienced replacements, Cody Grimm and Corey Lynch.
