Troubled Justin Blackmon not in Jaguars' plans

The Jacksonviille Jaguars aren't counting on troubled wide receiver Justin Blackmon.

He's not in their plans at this point as he deals with his off-field problems.

"We hope for him, we pray for him, our thoughts are with him," general manager David Caldwell said. "We hope he comes back because he's talented. We also know that he's a good person fighting a tough battle.

"I think we have to treat it as a luxury. If he comes back, that's great. If he doesn't, we feel good about the three guys that we've got and if he comes back, that's even better."

Blackmon has sought treatment after being arrested in July for possession of marijuana.

"There is no risk," Caldwell said of keeping Blackmon on the roster without pay in the event that he gets his life on track.
