Buccaneers S Tanard Jackson Suspended Indefinitely

Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Tanard Jackson has been suspended indefinitely by the National Football League for violating the league's substance abuse policy, Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports.

As a repeat offender of this policy--Jackson was suspended to start the 2009 season--Jackson may not apply for reinstatement until September 22, 2011. Jackson's suspension is without pay, which will cost the fourth-year safety $485,294 in base salary this season.

A fourth-round pick out of Syracuse in 2007, Jackson (6-0, 200) has started all 46 of his games in the NFL, totaling 204 tackles and a quarterback sack, with 8 interceptions and 24 total passes defensed.
