Broncos starting cornerback Kareem Jackson has been suspended two games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
His suspension stems from a DUI arrest from September, the Broncos said in a statement.
“Kareem Jackson was arrested for driving under the influence on Thursday, Sept. 19. He immediately informed our team of the incident, which we promptly reported to the NFL and thoroughly reviewed as an organization,” the organization said.
“There are high standards for the personal conduct of all members of our organization, and we have expressed our extreme disappointment to Kareem for his poor judgment. Under the NFL Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse, he has been suspended for the Broncos’ final two games of the 2019 season.”
The 31-year-old has started all 13 games this season for Denver, who will host the Lions on Sunday.
