Justin Blackmon's transition to the NFL looked seamless during the preseason. He was too physical for opposing cornerbacks and gained a lot of yards after the catch.
Like a lot of rookie wide receivers, life got a lot harder when the real games started.
"I just have to keep doing what I'm doing -- practice every day, try to get better every day," Blackmon said. "I'm not surprised at all."
Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey says Blackmon has done everything the team has asked, but he admitted the rookie could be pressing. Jacksonville could use some help in a passing game that has been among the league's worst this season. Laurent Robinson missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning Friday. His status is up in the air.
