Blackmon has been suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. This is at least his third violation in about 18 months. And the Jacksonville Jaguars are acknowledging he has a problem.
Blackmon was previously suspended the first four games of this season for violating the same policy. Blackmon's suspension begins immediately. He will be eligible to apply for reinstatement prior to the start of the 2014 season. Since the winless Jaguars (0-8) aren't on the hook for the rest of Blackmon's salary this season, they could keep him on the roster in hopes he turns his life around.
