Coach Gus Bradley said Blackmon was "doing very well," according to the report. Bradley cannot speak to Blackmon due to the suspension, and has been getting updates from his agent. Blackmon was suspended for at least a year after repeated violating the substance abuse policy. Though he's currently unable to play, Blackmon is still a member of Jacksonville's organization.
"We want to keep him as a player," Khan said. "He's not a part of the team now, obviously, but it's very important for him to get the help. It's the most important thing."
Blackmon is suspended indefinitely and is banned from being around the team or the Jaguars' facility. "We want him to get help and really beat this," Kahn said.
According to the police report, Blackmon was stopped for a traffic violation. Officers said they could smell an odor of marijuana coming from inside the car.
After a search, police said they found marijuana and Blackmon was taken into custody. Blackmon was also issued a citation for the traffic violation. Edmond police did not say how much marijuana was discovered in the vehicle.
Blackmon is currently suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
"I feel at times there’s probably a little emptiness," Bradley told the paper. "There are some unknowns there and you don’t know how it’s working. You don’t want to shut it off. We haven’t heard much and it doesn’t sound like it’s going in the right direction. ... We can’t count on him."
The Jaguars don’t expect Blackmon to be reinstated in 2014, so they drafted two receivers in the second round.
There is no official word on when, or if, he will be reinstated by the league. He's currently serving an indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
