Western Kentucky senior linebacker Andrew Jackson has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules, the program announced Wednesday.
Jackson, a team captain, is second on the team with 59 total tackles this season and has a team high 290 for his career. He was voted preseason defensive defensive player of the year by the league’s coaches in July.
From Kathleen High and Lakeland, Fla., Jackson is projected to be a third or fourth round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, according to CBS Sports. His season high for stops this year is 10 against Louisiana-Lafayette on Oct. 15 and his career high of 19 came in 2012 against Florida Atlantic.
Jackson also has 39 career tackles for loss, 5 1/2 sacks and an interception.
He will not travel with the team to Atlanta this weekend where WKU (4-4, 1-3 SBC) will play Georgia State (0-8, 0-3 SBC) at noon CDT in the Georgia Dome. Sophomore Daqual Randall is expected to take his place.
