NFL suspends WR Vincent Jackson for three games

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Chargers wide receiver, Vincent Jackson, has been suspended three games by the NFL.

The pro bowler is banned from playing in the first three games of the upcoming season for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Jackson pleaded guilty to his second DUI charge in February.

The suspension could be reduced if he appeals. But then again, it may not matter. Jackson's in a contract dispute with the Chargers and has refused to report to the team until he receives a new long-term deal.
