Justin Blackmon Held Out Of Jaguars Workout With Foot Injury

While many new Jacksonville Jaguars were taking part in Rookie Mini Camp workouts Sunday afternoon, top draft pick Justin Blackmon was held out with a sore right foot.

Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey describes the injury as just "general soreness" and is nothing serious. The coaching and training staff believed for it to be a good idea to keep him out of the workout to avoid further aggrivation. Blackmon is expected to be at full strength for full-team workouts, which begin May 15.

Blackmon, a wide receiver out of Oklahoma State, was taken with the fifth overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He has yet to sign with the team.
