OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Baltimore Ravens cornerback Asa Jackson has been suspended without pay for the first eight games of the regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Jackson received a four-game suspension as a rookie last season for the same reason. This suspension is for eight games because it's his second violation.

Drafted in the fifth round out of Cal Poly, Jackson played in only two games last season for the Super Bowl champions.

Jackson will be eligible to return to the active roster Nov. 4 after the team's game against Cleveland on Nov. 3. He is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.
