The NFL has reinstated former Cal Poly All-American Asa Jackson after his suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy. The Baltimore Ravens cornerback was suspended without pay for four games for "unauthorized usage of Adderall," according to reports that came out at the time of suspension. Adderall is a drug commonly prescribed to people with A.D.H.D.
The rookie has played in three games this season on special teams for the Ravens.
Baltimore received a one-week roster exemption for Jackson, so he can practice with the team leading up to the Ravens' playoff game against Denver. The team must make a roster move if it wants the fifth round draft pick to play against the Broncos.
Jackson lost $91,764 in pay due to the four-week suspension. Multiple players have been handed suspensions in the NFL for testing positive for Adderall this season, including Brandon Browner, Eric Wright and Will Hill.
Baltimore plays in Denver on Saturday with kickoff set for 1:30 pm California time.
