A team missing proven playmakers will be without another for 4 games now that WR Ace Sanders will reportedly be suspended.
The Jaguars’ rebuilding process will continue without WR Ace Sanders. The 2nd year wide receiver who was second on the team in receiving yards in 2013 has reportedly been suspended by the league for four games.
“I am taking full responsibility for all my actions,” Sanders said in an interview with Ian Rapoport. “I am sorry.”
The exact nature of the suspension remains unknown, but Sanders plans to appeal the suspension.
Sanders caught 51 passes for 484 yards and a TD for the Jaguars in 2013. He also threw a 21-yard TD pass to Jordan Toddman in a win against the Houston Texans.
Sanders was expected to be a backup on the depth chart behind veteran Cecil Shorts and rookies Marquise Lee and Allen Robinson. The team cut long-time starting RB Maurice Jones-Drew during the offseason and suspended former 1st round WR Justin Blackmon for the season.
