On Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon returned from his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy and early in the game he is making his impact felt.
Blackmon, who has incredible talent but struggles to get it off the field, was able to take a pass from Blaine Gabbert and race 67-yards to the endzone.
Here is a GIF of the immediate impact that Blackmon was able to make, via Deadspin.com:
This is the first sign of life that the Jaguars offense has shown this season, so fans have to be thrilled to see Blackmon back on the field.
The St. Louis Rams secondary has been plagued by injuries and they are down a few starters, so Blackmon and Cecil Shorts seemed poised for breakout games if Blaine Gabbert was able to get them the ball. So far, so good for the lowly Jaguars.
This may be their best chance to get a win this season, so the team needs to keep firing on all cylinders.
