During an Wednesday’s NFL Live, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen (via stated that it’s “very unlikely”  that Jacksonville Jaguars rookie wide receiver Justin Blackmon will be suspended by the NFL for being arrested last weekend while driving under the influence of alcohol.

“Very unlikely — suspension — because there’s no extenuating circumstances in this instance,” Mortensen said. “They could fine him half a game check, up to $50,000 maximum, but they can tack on a little more on that fine because they can take into consideration that prior DUI in college.  Unlikely, I’d say, to be suspended, unless extenuating circumstances are found.”
