Rob Jackson suspended four games
The league said Wednesday night that Jackson will miss the first four games of the regular season.
The Redskins re-signed Jackson to a one-year contract with a $715,000 base salary this month to keep him from becoming a restricted free agent.
Jackson was selected in the seventh round by the Redskins in 2008. He started 14 games last year and had 4½ sacks filling in for injured outside linebacker Brian Orakpo.
