Blackmon had groin surgery recently

Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon’s suspended for the first four regular season games, but he’s eligible to participate in training camp and the preseason.

Now, there’s a chance he’ll miss part of that time.

According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, Blackmon recently had groin surgery, and could be back for the start of camp in three weeks.

Blackmon was limited during minicamp, and didn’t take part in the final session on June 14.

If he’s not ready to start camp, Mohamed Massaquoi would likely take reps with the first offense alongside Cecil Shorts. While it would obviously be better if he didn’t miss any time, he’s already taking a month off, so if there’s a chance he’s back by camp, he should be recovered by Week Five, when he’s eligible to return.

    He should change his twitter handle to @JustBack.

    I’m beginning to hate Blackmon on a Gabbert/Alualu level.

    I would bet in a couple years this fool will be out of the NFL.

    By “groin surgery”, I presume you mean “surgery to pull his head out of his rear and stop doing stupid things”?

    Great, plenty of time to get in trouble, AGAIN.

    Thank heavens, the Rams didn’t trade up for this moron. He’s going to wash out quick.

    Who thinks a drunk is going to stay in shape when he has a medical excuse not to be at work?

    He must have pulled a muscle while dehydrated from all that drinking.
