Jackson was handed a two-game suspension for his September DUI arrest, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Jackson waived the appeal, and his suspension will keep him out for the rest of the year. The veteran safety will finish the year with 71 tackles, 10 pass breakups and two interceptions. Will Parks is expected to start at strong safety going forward while Trey Marshall could see an uptick in usage.
Jackson recorded eleven tackles, three passes defensed, an interception and 70-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown during Sunday's 38-24 win over Houston. It was about as good a homecoming as the long-time Texan could have expected. The Alabama product set the tone early, having a fumble recovery lateraled to him during Houston's second drive of the game and scampering for a 70-yard touchdown. He ended Houston's next drive with a vicious hit on DeAndre Hopkins to break up a third-down conversion. Jackson has been a free-agent find for the Broncos as he's moved over to strong safety. Head coach Vic Fangio has said that he believes the veteran can improve as he gains comfort in his new position. He'll be tested Sunday against an explosive Chiefs offense.
Jackson recorded seven tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 20-3 loss to Buffalo. Jackson saw a season-high 80 snaps and tied his second-best tackle total of the campaign with the effort. The 31-year-old is up to 52 tackles (36 solo) on the year to go with one interception over 10 games.
Jackson had a tackle for loss and an interception during Sunday's 16-0 win over the Titans. Facing fourth down in the final moments of the game, Ryan Tannehill tried to fit a pass near the goal line but had it snatched away by Jackson. It was the free-agent acquisition's second forced turnover in as many weeks, and his first interception as a Bronco. Though he's primarily played safety, Jackson's versatility has been useful in a depleted secondary. An explosive Chiefs offense awaits Thursday.
Jackson recorded 10 combined tackles and forced a fumble during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Chargers. The final score might have looked a lot different had Jackson not chased down Austin Ekeler on a race to the front pylon during the final play of the first half. The Chargers, facing 4th-and-goal from the one-yard line, elected to dump it off to the speedy back, but Jackson closed quickly and knocked the ball out as Ekeler reached for the goal line. Jackson, who has rotated between safety and corner with the Broncos dinged up in the secondary, has drawn wide praise among teammates and staff for his hard-hitting play over the middle. He currently ranks tied for second on the team with 26 tackles and is a key cog in Denver's fourth-ranked pass defense.
