But everything else about Blackmon — undoubtedly his present and possibly his future — had changed since the Jaguars were last together.

The promising start to his season, 29 catches in four games, is now a memory, replaced by a second suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Blackmon’s year is over and his playing career is in the hands of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who will handle the reinstatement procedure.

Given the weekend to process Blackmon’s ban and what it will mean, the Jaguars reacted after practice.

“Obviously, I’m disappointed,” coach Gus Bradley said. “But I think I can say this: There’s something bigger out there that we’re working on with him.”

Citing league confidentially guidelines, Bradley wouldn’t elaborate what that “something,” is, but Blackmon is likely headed to treatment.

Bradley reiterated how much he trusted Blackmon through his first suspension and deflected a question about trusting Blackmon when or if he’s back on the roster.

“We’re not even going there right now,” Bradley said. “We’re taking the next step and that’s completely for him as a person [not as a player]. I’m thinking about what we have to do to get him right.”

Bradley talked to Blackmon over the weekend and receiver Cecil Shorts reached out to him Saturday.

“You just try to stay supportive,” Shorts said. “He’s in a tough situation right now. We’ll do all we can to be by his side. … I thought he was doing well. Of course, I’m not at home with him.

“I’m pretty sure he will go through the proper steps to get better.”

Shorts disagreed that the players should feel let down by Blackmon’s transgressions.
