Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon recently had groin surgery

Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon has recently had groin surgery this offseason, per Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union.

Per O'Halloran, Blackmon may be ready for the start of training camp, which opens on July 25th.

Although Blackmon is eligible to practice and participate in preseason games, he will serve a four-game suspension to start the 2013 regular season. That means, Blackmon will be eligible to return on Oct. 6th when the Jaguars travel to St. Louis to face the Rams (see schedule).

Blackmon, my 44th-ranked fantasy wide receiver, had a team-high 64 receptions and finished with 865 yards and five touchdowns last season.
