Suspended receiver Justin Blackmon will join the Jacksonville Jaguars for their stay on the West Coast. Coach Gus Bradley says the NFL confirmed that Blackmon can join coaches and teammates in Fremont, Calif., next week, where he will participate in meetings. Blackmon is suspended the first four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He's not allowed to practice or attend games during the suspension.
