Default Bucs safety Tanard Jackson

I'm not sure how good this guy is or anything but...

TAMPA, Fla.-- Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Tanard Jackson has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, the team announced Thursday afternoon.

Jackson is suspended for the rest of the year and is not eligible for possible reinstatement until Sept. 22, 2011. He will not be paid while he is suspended.

"Tanard is a talented young man whom we hope is able to use this year to put his troubles behind him and ultimately return a stronger man and player," general manager Mark Dominik said. "It's up to Tanard whether the teams and our fans eventually realize his considerable promise."

Jackson was supended the first four game of the 2009 season for violating the substance abuse policy. Despite the four-game ban last season, Jackson finished with five interceptions in 12 starts. He had 13 tackles in two games this seasons, helping Tampa Bay to its first 2-0 start in five years.

Rookie Cody Grimm, a seventh-round pick, is listed as the backup on Tampa Bay's depth chart. Corey Lynch, a third-year player, is listed as the third team free safety.

Jackson, 25, was a fourth-round pick by Tampa Bay in 2007.

It's got to be hurting their defense just a little bit to have him out. 13 tackles in two games means he must be having a positive impact on the team. I haven't watched any full games of theirs though, so I can't say if he's one of their best defensive guys or not.

Any team will suffer somewhat defensively though when they have to replace a veteran SS for a rookie one.

This is going to be a huge loss for us.

Tanard is arguebly our best defensive player and is a ballhawk at safety. Surprised you guys don't know who he is. Just shows how under the radar he is. One of the best young safeties in the NFL.

We will most likely be replacing him with Corey Lynch or rookie Cody Grimm. Either way, I am not feeling too confident about it. Jackson is a huge part to our defense and losing him is HUGE.

Cool. Maybe we can get more than 22 passing yards net this week. That was pathetic. I am just stoked that we made it through two games undefeated while Ben is out. He will be back in 4 weeks ready to rock and roll. When that happens I hope we still have some Olinemen left. They are going down like flies.

He's a free safety and by far our best. I'd say he's right behind Talib so far..

We're paper thin at safety.. So now you guys will win by at least 2 TDs.

Ahh ok. Like I said before, I rarely get to watch TB games, so I'm not too familiar with a lot of their players.

That's a funny joke that we'll win by 2 TDs though. I know, even with this, that they'll be lucky to get one. Certainly keeping my fingers crossed though.

Highly doubt batch will be throwing the long ball this sunday even with him out. I'm sure it will hurt, but honestly this game will be won in the trenches
