|Justin Blackmon suspended indefinitely -- Fri Nov 1 3:00 pm --|
|Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, the league announced Friday. Blackmon's latest suspension begins immediately. He will be eligible to apply for reinstatement prior to the start of the 2014 season. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Blackmon missed the first four games of this season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. With Blackmon out for the year, Mike Brown should fill the No.2 receiver role in the Jaguars offense and becomes a viable, low-end WR3 moving forward.
| Blackmon returns to practice -- Thu Oct 17 4:25 pm --|
Shorts likely to be game-time decision

FF Today's Take: Blackmon is dealing with a hamstring injury or soreness, but that is not entirely unexpected for a player who has been asked to do so much so quickly following a four-game suspension. Shorts is having trouble raising his arm above his shoulder and complained that he has been unable to sleep because of the pain from his SC joint injury, so he's very unlikely to go. Desperate owners can look to Mike Brown, although there are most likely better options available in most leagues.
| Shorts, Blackmon sit Wednesday -- Wed Oct 16 3:30 pm --|
Jaguars' receivers miss practice
|WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder joint). Hurt on third play of Denver game. WR Justin Blackmon (hamstring/groin). Played through it against Denver. Both did not practice Wednesday. (Florida Times-Union)|
FF Today's Take: Blackmon is expected to play this week but Shorts (shoulder) is a bigger question mark. If Shorts sits, Mike Brown would get the start.
| Shorts could play Week 7 -- Tue Oct 15 7:00 am --|
|Cecil Shorts, who did not return after sustaining a sprained sternoclavicular joint - a joint near the clavicle and rib area - on the third play of a loss in Denver Sunday, hasn’t been ruled out of the team’s game this weekend against San Diego, Bradley said Monday. "He’s sore now, so we’ll know more in a couple of days,” Bradley added. “The good news is the joint is stable." (Jaguars.com)|
FF Today's Take: It sounds like this will be a pain tolerance issue and Shorts is likely to be a gametime decision this week. If he doesn't play, Mike Brown would see increased snaps.
