    LOVERRO: CBS Sports leaves broadcasters hanging in Redskins name debate

    By Thom Loverro - The Washington Times

    This winter, CBS paid $250 million for the rights to broadcast eight Thursday night games. Upon announcing the deal, Sean McManus declared, "The NFL is the most powerful programming in television."

    The infraction is at least the fourth for Jackson, whose violations of the policy have derailed his once-promising career. Originally suspended for the first four games of the 2009 season, Jackson missed an entire year after he failed a drug test following the second week of the 2010 season.
