ENGLEWOOD | The NFL suspended Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson on Tuesday for the final two regular season games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Jackson was arrested Sept. 19 for driving under the influence.

The Broncos said Jackson informed the team of his DUI arrest and that it was reported to the NFL. In a statement, the team said: “There are high standards for the personal conduct of all members of our organization, and we have expressed our extreme disappointment to Kareem for his poor judgment.”

The 31-year-old Jackson was suspended without pay.

Jackson has two interceptions for a Broncos team that’s ensured of a third straight losing season. They host Detroit on Sunday.

Denver signed Jackson to a three-year, $33 million last offseason.
