The NFL is reinstating Washington Redskins safety Tanard Jackson, according to CBS Sports and the Washington Post.

Jackson hasn't played since 2011 due to a suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Jackson signed with the Redskins in 2012, but hasn't played for them. He has been eligible for reinstatement since last August and spent all of last season suspended.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers fourth-round draft pick from Syracuse has 10 career interceptions and five forced fumbles, starting 56 games.
