    The NFL suspended" San Diego Chargers Pro Bowl wide receiver" Vincent Jackson three games for violating the league's personal conduct policy, a league source said Thursday.

    The three-game suspension can be reduced upon appeal, but it is uncertain whether Jackson will appeal. He pleaded guilty in February to driving under the influence, his second conviction.

    Jackson's suspension could be a moot point, however. He has been planning to not report to the Chargers unless he signs a long-term contract extension that nobody believes is forthcoming.

    If the season begins and Jackson has not reported to the team, then he would be suspended for three games that he wouldn't have played in anyway.

    The 27-year-old Jackson had 1,167 receiving yards and nine touchdowns last season, his fifth with the Chargers.
