TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay safety Tanard Jackson has been suspended for a minimum of a year without pay for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

The league made the announcement Wednesday, saying Jackson has been suspended indefinitely but will be eligible for reinstatement beginning Sept. 22, 2011.

The fourth-year pro sat out the first four games of the 2009 season while serving a previous suspension for violating the substances of abuse policy.

A fourth-round draft pick in 2007, Jackson is the only defensive player in Bucs history to start every game in his first two seasons.

Despite the four-game ban last season, Jackson finished with five interceptions in 12 starts. He had 13 tackles in two games this season, helping Tampa Bay to its first 2-0 start in five years.
