Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon wasn’t able to dodge a guardrail. But he nevertheless dodged a bullet.
According to Chris Parenteau of WJXT in Jacksonville, Blackmon has been cited for careless driving after a one-vehicle incident. His SUV struck a guardrail and landed in a ditch after blowing out a tire.
The good news for Blackmon is that police concluded there were no signs of alcohol in connection with the crash.
Blackmon currently is suspended by the NFL for multiple violations of the substance-abuse policy. He’s eligible to apply for reinstatement before the 2014 regular season. Any further violations would extend his absence even longer.
