JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Justin Blackmon has been arrested, criticized, suspended and vilified during his two seasons in the NFL.

Maybe he was long overdue for something positive.

Coming off a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, Blackmon has been the best receiver in the league over the last two weeks.

The former Oklahoma State star has caught 19 passes for 326 yards and a touchdown, becoming one of the lone bright spots on a team that has lost every game by double digits. His two-game totals are tops in the league in receptions, first downs and yards from scrimmage.

Blackmon credits his suspension for his recent success, saying he used the time to get in better shape.

Jacksonville hosts San Diego on Sunday.
