Coach Gus Bradley reiterated that the Jaguars are still unsure of Justin Blackmon's availability for this season.

Blackmon is currently serving an indefinite suspension for his third violation of the league's substance abuse policy. He will be able to petition commissioner Roger Goodell for reinstatement before the season begins, but no one seems to have any idea if he'll be successful. Bradley said the Jags are preparing for the season as if they won't have Blackmon.

Justin Blackmon was involved in a single-vehicle accident early Saturday morning in Jacksonville.

The right-rear tire on Blackmon's Denali blew out on the highway, sending him into a road-side guard rail. Thankfully, Blackmon was uninjured, and alcohol was not involved. Blackmon is indefinitely suspended for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy. It is still unclear when Blackmon's suspension will end, but he should be able to apply for reinstatement before the beginning of 2014.

Jaguars GM David Caldwell reiterated Thursday that the team will welcome back Justin Blackmon when his indefinite suspension is lifted.

"At some point in time, he will be back," Caldwell said. Caldwell was echoing comments made by owner Shad Khan late last month. Blackmon is one of the biggest off-the-field headaches in all of football, but the Jaguars simply can't afford to throw in the towel on his talent. Blackmon will be a 2014 breakout candidate if he can keep his head on straight.

Owner Shad Khan stated at the Super Bowl Friday that he would "absolutely" like suspended WR Justin Blackmon back with the Jaguars in 2014.

Blackmon is eligible for reinstatement before next season, though the date on which he can file is unknown. He's a recommended Dynasty target, coming with obvious risk that should make Blackmon more affordable via trade. Blackmon just turned 24, and the Jaguars obviously still envision him as a part of their future. They're also going to be upgrading at quarterback very soon.

According to Jaguars.com, the team is "moving forward treating (Justin) Blackmon as a luxury."

Blackmon was hit with an indefinite suspension on November 1. The latest ban is believed to be for a failed drug test, on the heels of Blackmon's four-game substance abuse suspension to open last season. Per the Jags' website, Blackmon is expected to be able to apply for reinstatement "before next season," but the "exact date ... is likely to be an area of mystery for a while." The Jaguars are viewing anything Blackmon gives them in the future a bonus.

Per FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, suspended WR Justin Blackmon will be eligible to apply for reinstatement for the start of the 2014 season.

Glazer reports "those close to Blackmon" are trying to get him help and to a rehab facility. The Jaguars' organization was informed of Blackmon's latest ban on Friday afternoon. The specifics of Blackmon's violation have yet to be revealed, but he is done for the 2013 season and is now a repeat offender of the league's substance abuse policy. The Jags could easily throw in the towel on Blackmon, although talent usually comes first for NFL team decision makers.

NFL suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon indefinitely for another violation of the league's substance abuse policy.

His season is over. Blackmon opened the season on a four-game suspension for similar violations, and has had well-documented alcohol problems dating back to Oklahoma State. The reason for his latest ban is unclear. ESPN's Chris Mortensen confirmed on NFL Live Friday that Blackmon is done for the year, suspended indefinitely, and his future with the Jaguars' organization is now unclear. Look for Mike Brown to be Jacksonville's No. 2 receiver the rest of the way. Cecil Shorts is going to be a target monster in the Jaguars' garbage-time offense.

Justin Blackmon caught four balls for 31 yards in the Jaguars' Week 8 loss to San Francisco.

Blackmon's catches were largely of the chain-moving variety, and he cost himself a chance at a much bigger game by dropping a seam pass that almost certainly would've gone for a 26-yard touchdown. The Jaguars have a Week 9 bye before visiting the Titans in Week 10. Blackmon is a WR2 in fantasy football.
