Ace Sanders back with Jaguars

When Jaguars wide receiver Ace Sanders announced last month that he was facing a four-game suspension for violating the substance abuse policy, he said that he’d be taking a leave from the team during training camp to get the help he needs.

Sanders was gone from the team for a month, an absence that came to an end on Sunday morning. Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that Sanders reported for work at 10:30 a.m. along with the rest of the team.

Sanders is expected to do conditioning work on the side on Sunday. He’s eligible to play in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Falcons, which would be his last chance at game action until the Jaguars’s fifth game of the season, but the Jaguars haven’t said whether they’ll let him take the field.

With Sanders ineligible to practice during his suspension, the next couple of weeks should be pretty big for Sanders’ chances of carving out a role on the offense upon his return to action in the fall. If he can’t do that now, there might be a bit too much lost time to make up with the season already underway.

    Following the non-Blackmon path is not a bad thing.

    Rewrite the CBA to say “if a team cuts a player during a league imposed 4 game suspension for violating the substance abuse policy, that player will be ineligible to sign with another team until the beginning of the next league year. The original team shall retain the right of first refusal at the original contract terms less 10 percent of guaranteed money.”
