Free agent wide receiver Ace Sanders , released by the Jaguars last month, has been suspended for the first 10 games of the season, ESPN reported. Sanders missed the first four games last year under the league's substance abuse policy. Initial reports didn't say whether the 10-game suspension was due to another violation.
The Jaguars released wide receiver Ace Sanders on Friday. The 5-7, 178-pound receiver is in his third season in the NFL. Sanders, who was a fourth-round draft pick in 2013, had a promising rookie season. He appeared in 15 games (four starts), totaling 51 catches for 484 yards and one touchdown. He was targeted 87 times. Unfortunately, Sanders was pretty non-existent on offense in 2014. He appeared in 12 games (no starts), while catching just six passes for 55 yards. Sanders also contributed on special teams as a punt and kick returner.
The minor contributors outnumbered the major ones Sunday for the Jaguars - it's no wonder they lost badly to Dallas. The best of the bunch was wideout Allen Robinson, who caught five passes for 60 yards. Tight end Clay Harbor chipped in with three catches for 28 yards while running back Jordan Todman added three receptions for 27 yards and two rushes for six yards. Also contributing were tight end Nic Jacobs (1-14) and wideouts Marqise Lee (1-13), Ace Sanders (1-10) and Allen Hurns (1-9). Running back Toby Gerhart managed two yards on four carries for Jacksonville, which has embarked on its bye week.
Several Jaguars chipped in with offensive contributions Sunday against the Browns. The most well-rounded was wideout Marqise Lee, who caught one pass for 20 yards and added two carries for five yards. The other small contributors added one catch - Jordan Todman for 26 yards, Allen Hurns for seven yards and Ace Sanders for no yards.
The Jaguars activated wide receiver Ace Sanders to the 53-man roster Saturday, waiving tight end Mickey Shuler in a related move. Sanders was suspended for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
