Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon has been suspended indefinitely without pay for violating the NFL substance abuse policy. This is Blackmon’s second violation in six months. The wide receiver stared the season missing the first four games because of the April violation.
He’s eligible to apply for reinstatement prior to the start of the 2014 season.
“All of us who are a part of the Jaguars family care very deeply about Justin and his well-being,” Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said. “That said, he must be held accountable and accept the consequences announced today by the NFL. 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. The Jacksonville Jaguars will evaluate Justin’s status once he has successfully met the criteria to be considered for reinstatement to the league.”
