Broncos’ Kareem Jackson suspended two games for violating NFL drug policy
The Denver Broncos’ lost season keeps getting worse as we go down the stretch.
Safety Kareem Jackson has been suspended for the final two games of the season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

The suspension stems from a DUI arrest in September, which was reviewed by the team and the league.
The veteran defensive back was in his first season with Denver after nine years with the Houston Texans. He had started 13 games for the Broncos, tallying 71 total tackles and two interceptions.
In the grand scheme of things, this isn’t a huge deal. The Broncos are out of it and it won’t ruin their chances at a playoff spot or anything like that. Still, it’s a fitting end to a frustrating season that has left one of Jackson’s teammates lost for words.
