BREAKING: Broncos’ Kareem Jackson Gets Suspension Reduced From 4 To 2 Games Following Appeal

Kareem Jackson’s suspension has been cut in half.

Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson’s four-game suspension was reduced to two games by appeals officer Derrick Brooks, the NFL announced on Tuesday.

On Monday, the NFL suspended Jackson for four games following his second ejection of the season in Sunday’s win over the Green Bay Packers. The ejecting game following another illegal hit laid out by Jackson, this time on Packers tight end Luke Musgrave.

It was Jackson’s second ejection of the season with the other being Week 2 when Jackson laid out Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas. The hit concussed the Commanders tight end. Jackson drew a $19,669 fine for the hit on Thomas but was not suspended.


A week earlier, Jackson was flagged for another illegal hit – this time on Raiders WR Jakobi Myers. He was fined $19,669 for that hit, as well.

Jackson, 35, is in his fifth season as a starting safety in Denver. In seven games this season, he has two interceptions, three passes defended and 42 tackles. Backup Delarrin Turner-Yell could take his place in the starting lineup.

He is eligible to return to the Broncos on Nov. 14, which is Week 11 in the league. The Broncos (2-5) will face the Minnesota Vikings on Nov. 19 in Denver.
