Suspended Justin Blackmon in rehab facility

<p> Suspended Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon is in a 90-day rehab facility, voluntarily checking himself in.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said that the troubled former first-round draft pick "is doing well and he's learning a lot."

"He's healing and taking time for himself," Bradley said. "The great thing is he has chosen this for himself. It's awesome to hear about."

Blackmon is roughly halfway through the program.

"It's a voluntary program he has chosen to do," Bradley said.

Blackmon is suspended for at least a year.

Blackmon has had a series of driving under the influence issues in the past, and possession of marijuana charges in July

"I think it's very important for him to get the help," owner Shad Khan said. "I think that's the most important thing. ... I think it's good for him and good for us. We want him to get the help and really beat this."
