Jaguars | Justin Blackmon progressing
Thu, 17 Oct 2013 13:54:10 -0700
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon (hamstring, groin) is progressing nicely but is unlikely to practice Friday, Oct. 18. However, head coach Gus Bradley said Blackmon should be able to play in Week 7 against the San Diego Chargers. "Blackmon's good," Bradley said. "I think it's something that he'll have to deal with. He may be a guy that we hold out tomorrow just to keep it calmed down."
Blackmon should play and makes for a solid WR2 in most leagues. However, if Cecil Shorts (shoulder) doesn't play, you may want to lower your expectations a bit if the San Diego Chargers elect to double Blackmon. Blackmon was limited in practice Thursday.
