Justin Blackmon is back in full practice after a minor ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Jacksonville Jaguars confirmed on their official Twitter that WR Justin Blackmon is back in full practice Thursday after suffering an ankle injury during Wednesday's practice. The rookie receiver is expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Sounds like a minor issue for now, but ankle injuries are tricky for receivers, so keep an eye on Friday's practice reports. Blackmon had a great preseason and should fit right in on your fantasy roster as a WR3, with major upside depending on how QB Blaine Gabbert progresses in his second year. He should have a nice pro debut Sunday against a weak Vikings secondary.
