ESPN is reporting that Washington Redskins safety Tanard Jackson has been suspended without pay for one full NFL season for violating the league's substance abuse policy for a third time.

Jackson, who lost time due to suspensions while with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, cannot have his case reviewed any earlier than Aug 31, 2013.

Jackson was released this off-season by the Bucs and signed by the Redskins after Raheem Morris was signed as defensive backs coach. He was poised to start at free safety.

Jackson was suspended for four games in 2009, 14 games in 2010 and six in 2011 when he was suspended again.
