Broncos Safety Kareem Jackson Receives Four-Game Suspension from NFL for Hit on Vikings’ Quarterback
In a shocking turn of events, Broncos safety Kareem Jackson has been handed a four-game suspension by the NFL for a hit on Vikings quarterback Josh Dobbs during their recent match. The hit, which was not flagged on the field, caused a fumble that ultimately led to the Broncos’ first score in their narrow 21-20 victory.
The suspension was delivered to Jackson via letter from NFL Vice President of Football Operations Jon Runyan, who cited the hit as a serious violation of playing rules. Runyan did not hold back, stating that illegal acts, particularly those that endanger player safety, will not be tolerated.
Interestingly, this is not the first time that Jackson has faced suspension for violating the same rule. Earlier this season, he received a two-game suspension for leading with his helmet. However, after appealing the decision, the suspension was reduced. It is expected that Jackson will once again appeal this latest suspension as well.
Adding to the growing list of controversies surrounding Jackson, he has also been ejected from two games this season and fined on four occasions for illegal hits. It is clear that the Broncos’ safety must modify his playing style to avoid further consequences from the league.
As the Broncos heavily rely on Jackson’s defensive prowess, this suspension casts doubt over the team’s future performance. The loss of such a key player for four games could potentially have a significant impact on their upcoming fixtures.
