Broncos’ Kareem Jackson will not be suspended for hits, source says

Broncos veteran safety Kareem Jackson will not be suspended by the NFL for his second illegal high hit in as many weeks, a league source confirmed Monday to The Post.

Jackson, 35, was penalized and ejected in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against Washington after he launched into a high hit on Washington tight end Logan Thomas on a fourth-down touchdown reception.

The Broncos safety was also flagged for unnecessary roughness in Week 1 for a high hit on Las Vegas wide receiver Jakobi Meyers.

Meyers and Thomas were each diagnosed with a concussion and Meyers did not play Week 2 for the Raiders. Jackson apologized for that hit after the Week 1 game and said, in part, ““Obviously we don’t play this game to hurt guys. It’s a tough sport we play. … Unfortunately stuff like that happens. Definitely sending my thoughts and prayers to him.”
