The specific violation is unknown for now for now, but it is not the result of performance-enhancing drugs. Blackmon does have a history of substance abuse, as he was arrested a month after the 2012 NFL draft for a DUI.

Blackmon's suspension is for violating the league police on substance abuse, not performance-enhancing drugs. In other words, not Adderall.4/30/2013, 8:14:18 PM
Blackmon will be eligible to return to the team Sept. 30, which is the day following the Jaguars' game against the AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts.
