Justin Blackmon ready to return from suspension for Jaguars

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Jacksonville is about to get a much-needed boost with its best receiver returning from suspension.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are getting their best wide receiver back with Justin Blackmon returning from his four-game suspension this week, according to The Florida Times-Union.

Blackmon sat out the first quarter of the season due to a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, but the former first-round pick and Oklahoma State product  will now return to the worst team in the league. To put Blackmon on the active roster, a roster move will need to be made by Saturday.

Jacksonville quarterbacks will be thrilled to see Blackmon considering he caught 64 passes for 865 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie last year. Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne have combined for a grizzly stat line of one touchdown and seven interceptions while being sacked 18 times thus far this season.

Cecil Shorts III has led the Jaguars 337 receiving yards to this point in the season.
