Justin Blackmon sat out the final practice of the Jacksonville Jaguars' rookie minicamp this weekend because of "general soreness in his foot," coach Mike Mularkey said Sunday, according to the team's official Twitter feed.

Mularkey said he expected Blackmon to be ready for the Jaguars' organized team activities in a week.

After Friday's practice, Blackmon was soaked in sweat and still processing information from new coaches and teammates while learning a new system.

"Right now, I'm just a sponge trying to take it all in," he said.

The Jaguars traded up last month to swap spots with the Tampa Bay Bucccaneers and draft the former Oklahoma State receiver. They sent the Buccaneers their No. 7 pick and a fourth-round selection (No. 101) in the deal to take Blackmon fifth overall.

Blackmon was a two-time All-American in college and finished fifth in Heisman Trophy voting in 2010.
