JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- On Monday Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon was on the practice field for the first time since he was suspended.
Blackmon was 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.
After Monday's practice, Blackmon met with the media to discuss the suspension and what he plans to do to make sure he doesn't get in trouble again.
It appears that Blackmon has the support of most of his teammates along with Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell, and head coach Gus Bradley.
Cecil Shorts and Maurice Jones-Drew did not seem worried about Blackmon.
"He'll be fine," said Jones-Drew and Shorts.
Blackmon will be forced to sit out the Jaguars first four games against Kansas City, at Oakland, at Seattle, and vs. Indianapolis.
