Kareem Jackson won’t face suspension for Logan Thomas hit
Denver Broncos safety Kareem Jackson reportedly won’t be suspended for the high hit that left Washington Commanders tight end Logan Thomas with a concussion.
Jackson will be subject to a fine upon the NFL reviewing the helmet-to-helmet hit, according to multiple reports. But the veteran safety won’t miss a game, even though the instance marked the second straight week in which Jackson’s play came under scrutiny for delivering a questionable hit on an opponent.
In Week 1 against the Las Vegas Raiders, Jackson laid out wide receiver Jakobi Meyers across the middle — causing Meyers to miss the Raiders’ game Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. The NFL issued a nearly $15,000 fine to Jackson for the hit.
Against the Commanders, Jackson was immediately ejected for delivering a helmet-to-helmet hit in the second quarter after the tight end hauled in a 4-yard touchdown. Thomas remained on the ground for about a minute before eventually walking to the sideline. He was then evaluated for a concussion and ruled out for the rest of Washington’s 35-33 win.
If the NFL really cared about player safety then Kareem Jackson would sit a while.
