Justin Blackmon's preseason schedule has been a little different than that of his Jacksonville Jaguars teammates -- having joined the team late due to a contract holdout, the first-round draft pick has been working on a much more aggressive schedule than the rest of the team's starters. Because of that, the rookie wide receiver could reportedly appear for less than two quarters in Friday's preseason matchup with the New Orleans Saints:

One half is the prescribed amount of time for starters to play Friday, per Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey. Blackmon has officially been a Jaguar for roughly eight days, ending his holdout on Aug. 6, 2012, and agreeing to terms.
