Justin Blackmon removed from Jaguars sideline during game

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon had to be removed from the sideline during the team's preseason game against the Miami Dolphins.

Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon had to be removed from the sideline during Friday evening's preseason matchup with the Miami Dolphins for jawing with Dolphins defensive back Nolan Carroll and one of his own teammates on the sideline. He had to be pulled away by head coach Gus Bradley and then was escorted to the locker room by Maurice Jones-Drewaccording to a report in the Associated Press.

The argument didn't just involve Carroll however, as Blackmon and veteran defensive end Jason Babin got into it as well before Gus Bradley finally broke up the incident.

After the game, Bradley took Blackmon into his office and spoke with the second-year receiver.

"You know how it is in the preseason," Bradley told reporters after the game, via Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union. "Sometimes a player talks to the sideline. It started off as just banter and I just addressed it. I turned to him and said, ‘There's no place [for that]. I'd rather you use your energy to encourage our guys and not get caught in that.'

The situation will probably result in nothing, but it's not a good look for the player who in just one season in the NFL already has two DUI's, a four-game suspension, and questions about his maturity.

Blackmon is a passionate player, which is a double-edged sword, so he just needs to learn when to reel it in and when to let it fly.
