Jaguars’ Justin Blackmon suspended four games
Posted By Sports Talk Florida On April 30, 2013 @ 4:29 PM In Florida News,main feature,NFL | No Comments
The NFL announced Tuesday that Blackmon has been suspended without pay for the team’s first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Blackmon will be eligible to return to the Jaguars’ active roster on Monday, September 30 following the team’s September 29 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The news is a significant blow to a moribund Jaguars offense that is trying to find new life under coach Gus Bradley. Without Blackmon in the mix, the team’s top receivers are Cecil Shorts, Mohammed Massaquoi, Jordan Shipley, and rookie Ace Sanders. Perhaps the team will use draft pick Denard Robinson at receiver as well. Quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne aren’t exactly playing with a stacked deck.
