Washington Redskins safety Tanard Jackson was told by the NFL that he has been suspended indefinitely with a review after a year for violation of NFL Drug Policy, reports FoxSports.com.

Jackson, who the Redskins picked up in April, is trying to appeal that decision. Jackson was an original pick out of Syracuse by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. Jackson was suspended indefinitely by the NFL for a violation of their substance abuse policy in 2010. It was his second such violation.
