Bucs' Tanard Jackson suspended indefinitely

The NFL has suspended Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Tanard Jackson indefinitely for violation of the league’s policy and program for substance abuse.

The suspension basically means Jackson is out for at least a year. He is eligible for reinstatement on Sept. 22, 2011.

“Tanard is a talented young man whom we hope is able to use this year to put his troubles behind him and ultimately return a stronger man and player,” Bucs GM Mark Dominik said in a statement released by the club. “It's up to Tanard whether the team and our fans eventually realize his considerable promise.”

The 25-year-old made eight tackles in the first two games for the Bucs. He’s started 46 games since entering the league in 2007. The only four games Jackson missed came last year when he was suspended four games for violating the substance abuse policy.
