Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was pulled over at 6:22 p.m. local time Wednesday, July 23, leading up to his arrest for possession of marijuana. Police said Blackmon 'openly admitted to smoking a blunt while driving.'
Huddle Up: The already-suspended wideout doesn't seem too motivated to clean up his act, and it's fair to start wondering if we'll ever see him suit up for another NFL game.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has stayed quiet while serving his NFL suspension. "Every now and again, he will respond to my text," said Jaguars receiver Mike Brown. "We came into the NFL together and we're halfway close. But I don't get into his personal business. Whatever he has going on, I respect his space. I just want him to get better. Whatever the problem is, get it addressed. I'm more concerned about him as a person."
Huddle Up: Quiet, humbled, repetant and determined to redeem his NFL career -- those items should comprise the troubled wideout's to-do list as he waits until he's permitted back on the field.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have no plans to release Justin Blackmon. The team is hoping for Blackmon to return whenever he is reinstated from an indefinite suspension by the NFL.
Huddle Up: Hey, Blackmon was the draft's fifth-overall pick only 2 years ago and has proven to be productive when he's been on the field so don't start thinking he's out of chances quite yet.

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said he'd be 'relatively surprised' if WR Justin Blackmon played in the 2014 season.
Huddle Up: Bad news if you're holding Blackmon in a dynasty league and don't have the roster flexibility to stash him, as it looks like his off-the-field issues will keep him off the field for the foreseeable future.

Updating a previous report, the Florida Highway Patrol said WR Justin Blackmon will not be charged with careless driving after his one-car crash Saturday morning March 15.
Huddle Up: No, the 5th overall pick in 2012 isn't facing another DUI charge and avoided injury, but there still are hurdles aplenty awaiting the wideout who played in only 4 games this past season and remains on indefinite suspension from the league.

Jacksonville Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said the team would welcome WR Justin Blackmon back to the team if he can get things right.
Huddle Up: That last clause, of course, is the big one with the wideout having missed all but 4 games in 2013 due to a suspension. However, the former first-round pick did show quite well in those 4 games with 29 receptions and 415 yards, and that's what's spurring the Jags' faith.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon will enter a rehab facility, a league source said Sunday, Nov. 3. Blackmon was suspended indefinitely Friday, Nov. 1, for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, and he will be eligible to apply for reinstatement prior to the start of next season.
Huddle Up: Positive news that Blackmon is seeking help to wrestle with his demons, and a big step towards his availability for the start of the 2014 season.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's policy and program for substances of abuse. Blackmon will be eligible to apply for reinstatement prior to the 2014 season.
Huddle Up: Those who waited four games for Blackmon to return from his previous suspension, at least you got a little productivity out of him before losing him for the rest of the year. Mike Brown becomes a viable fantasy commodity, and Cecil Shorts' stock goes back up as well.

Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon (hamstring) is expected to play in the Week 8 game against the San Francisco 49ers in London. Officially, he is listed as probable.
Huddle Up: Blackmon was never in any real danger of missing Sunday's game. Plug him in as a WR2 this week against the 49ers.

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon (hamstring) didn't practice Friday, Oct. 25, but he's probable for Week 8.
Huddle Up: Usually when a player misses Friday's practice it sends up a red flag, but with Blackmon it sounds like all systems are go for this weekend so no reason for alarm.
