NFL suspends Broncos’ Jackson four games for another illegal hit in return



Santa Fe New Mexican


DENVER — Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson has been suspended again for violating the league’s playing rules designed to protect players’ health and safety. On just his third snap back from his first suspension for violating the league’s unnecessary roughness rules, Jackson lowered his head and hit Vikings QB Joshua Dobbs in the neck area, jarring the ball loose for a fumble that Denver recovered. The hit wasn’t flagged on the field but the league took a look at it Monday and issued a four-game suspension that will cost Jackson more than $500,000.
