Blackmon suspended

 

Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon has been suspended indefinitely without pay for another violation of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. Blackmon was previously suspended the first four games of this season for violating the policy. So this is at least his third violation in about 18 months. And the Jaguars are acknowledging he has a problem. “His suspension will provide him the opportunity to receive the attention and professional treatment necessary to overcome his challenges, and we will support him during this time,” said team general manager Dave Caldwell. Blackmon’s suspension begins immediately. He will be eligible to apply for reinstatement prior to the start of the 2014 season. – Associated Press
