Justin Blackmon activated from PUP list

Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon got himself in a little spot of trouble while standing in street clothes on the Jaguars sideline during Friday’s game against the Dolphins, so it might be a good thing that his days in street clothes appear to be coming to an end.

The Jaguars announced on Monday that Blackmon has passed his physical, which means he can come off the physically unable to perform list and join his teammates in practice for the first time since training camp began. Blackmon has been recovering from June groin surgery.

Getting Blackmon up to speed now will be important for the Jaguars because they will not have him available for practice or games during the first four weeks of the regular season as the wideout serves a suspension for violating the substance abuse policy. He’ll be eligible to play in the team’s three remaining preseason games as well, although there’s no word on whether or not he’ll be active for this week’s matchup with the Jets.

The Jags also announced that safety Jonathan Cyprien has been activated from the non-football injury list. The second-round pick injured his hamstring just before camp got underway, but is healthy enough to renew his push to land in the starting lineup from the start of his professional career.

    Moving up in the draft to take this guy is really paying off for Jacksonville. If the other teams in the division are smart they would send this guy at least a case of beer the week before they play.

    All he needs is a “Will work for food” sign to complete the look.

    My understanding is that he can practice during his suspension, just not play in the games.

    Now if the Jags could only get him off the MUP – Mentally Unable to Perform List!

    Wouldn’t think so. Usually players facing suspension can practice (including playing in preseason games) up until the suspension starts, but then they’re barred from any team activities for the duration.

    He may not be rough around the edges but I think this guy is going to be a beast monster. We will be happy we drafted him when its all said and done.

    Just suspend all Jaguar articles until they move to LA. They haven’t been relevant since they choked against the Titans back in 2000.

    @vaster
    2007 called. They want their lame and unoriginal LA joke back.
