Safety had been reinstated in May after a two-year suspension. He's now out indefinitely

As he attempts to make his third comeback from a drug suspension, Redskins safety Tanard Jackson described himself as humbled and thankful. He also said he he’s confident that he will not make the same mistake again.

Redskins general manager Bruce Allen took a non-committal approach on Tanard Jackson, who on Monday received word that he will be reinstated after missing two seasons while serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Safety has not played the past two seasons.

The Redskins general manager expressed disappointment in the troubled tight end, who this week received an indefinite suspension and then was arrested in Fairfax County and charged with driving while intoxicated.

Tight end violated the league’s substance abuse policy.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that he believes that safety Brandon Meriweather now understand the importance of avoiding helmet-to-helmet hits going forward.
