Kiffin won't comment if Jackson suspended for Memphis game.

Lane Kiffin isn’t about to start violating his personal policy about suspensions by talking about them publicly.

But at this point, it wouldn’t appear the Tennessee coach is exactly keeping them a secret either.

Janzen Jackson spent practice Thursday watching from a distance, and for a healthy safety who’s the reigning freshmen of the week in the SEC, that’s about as official as it gets. With or without confirmation from Kiffin, it appears Jackson won’t be in uniform to defend his latest award and an administrative issue will keep him out of the lineup against Memphis on Saturday (TV: ESPNU, 7 p.m.).

“I don’t talk about guys being suspended during the week,” Kiffin said. “So just like if it’s happened before and it’s happened again, I’ll address it after the game.”

When pressed further on Jackson specifically, Kiffin gave the same response about his availability for the Tigers.

The freshman has started every game but the opener for the Vols, and he’s emerged as one of the best players on one of the nation’s toughest defenses. But the fact Prentiss Waggner and Darren Myles Jr., split Jackson’s normal reps with the starters at practice perhaps gave away the answer Kiffin wouldn’t.

“Same thing, Prentiss and Darren Myles have both been back there,” Kiffin said. “We’ve given them basically equal reps and we’ll go back in there and watch this film before we make any decisions.”

A decision on Jackson seems to have already been made. But an official verdict won’t come out until Saturday.

He was at a 18+ bar wanted to take a drink(beer) outside bouncer wouldn't let him and there was an arguement, supposedly JJ pushed the bouncer then the bouncer got "physical" with JJ

From a foreigner looking in..wtf is with an 18+ bar when the legal limit is 21..its just asking for licenses to be taken away from you. after certain times(like 6pm) in the UK if you arent 18 you dont get into a pub, because all that will happen is people wil lbuy you drinks and it takes just 1 cop to see an underager and bam 4-5 figure fine or license gone.

Morale of the sotry drink in your dorm

Also if Waggner starts its likely he will play more of the SS and Berry will hang back in the FS spot Janzen is holding..which will hopefully mean he can finally break the record
