Just In: NFL upholds four-game suspension for Broncos’ Kareem Jackson…

Kareem Jackson, a defensive back for the Denver Broncos, will not get his punishment lowered this time.

Late on Tuesday night, the NFL declared that Derrick Brooks, the hearing officer, had upheld Jackson’s four-game punishment for hitting Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joshua Dobbs in the head on Sunday night.

Jackson has been punished twice this season for reckless play, and Sunday’s match marked his return to the starting lineup following the first suspension.

After the Broncos’ Week 7 loss to the Green Bay Packers, he was given a four-game suspension for breaking the league’s unnecessary roughness policy. After filing an appeal, the suspension was eventually lowered to two games.

He was unsuccessful in his appeal.

It also wasn’t supposed to.

This season, Jackson has shown he has little concern for the safety of his opponents and that he is not understanding the need to modify his player-tackle technique. He has received numerous suspensions, been sent off from two games, and paid over $89K in fines for repeatedly hitting opponents illegally.

His $279K pay was also lost during his two-game suspension.

This implies that he will lose more than $647K in pay this season as a result of his most recent four-game suspension.

Sunday’s collision occurred during the game’s third play.
