The Jacksonville Jaguars will get back second-year wide receiver Ace Sanders following his four-game suspension from the NFL for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy on Monday. With the Jaguars dealing with injuries at the receiver position, Sanders will be a nice addition to the Jaguars offense as well as injecting some play making ability to the punt return game.

Sanders, originally drafted by the Jaguars in the fourth-round of the 2013 NFL Draft, was surprisingly a big factor in the team's offense as a rookie. Originally drafted mostly on his punt return ability, Sanders was forced into the offense with injuries and suspensions at the receiver position.

Sanders finished the 2013 season with 51 receptions for nearly 500 yards, a receiving touchdown and a passing touchdown.

With Sanders being available to be added to the active roster, the Jaguars will need to make a move and release a player before he's available to play. The Jaguars do have a one-week roster exemption for Sanders until Monday, October 6th. The team has to make a move by Saturday evening if they want to make him active on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
