Description: Jaguars receiver Ace Sanders has served his four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse program and should be back on the field.
Insight: Sanders will complete with Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Cecil Shorts for playing time, though both Lee and Shorts are injured.

Insight: Sanders will leave the team indefinitely. "I've decided to go seek help, get (the) attention that I need -- hopefully somebody can help me out," Sanders said. "I should be OK; I just want to get better and come back and be ready to play. Sometimes life hits and it's hard." The 5-foot-7, 178-pound Sanders had 51 catches as a rookie, but produced just 484 yards and one touchdown. His spot on the roster was already tenuous after the Jags drafted Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson in the second round this year.

Description: Now that second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson are in the mix at wide receiver, Ace Sanders' roster spot with the Jaguars could be in jeopardy. SOURCE: Ryan O'Halloran, Florida Times Union
Insight: Sanders had a respectable rookie season (51 catches, 484 yards, one touchdown) but at 5-foot-7 and 178 pounds, he doesn't match up well against bigger defensive backs. Justin Blackmon's absence might ultimately be what allows Sanders to keep his job.

Description: Jaguars rookie wideout Ace Sanders could see significant targets with Jacksonville short-handed at the receiving spot.
Insight: Receivers Justin Blackmon, Stephen Burton and Mike Brown will all miss the game, leaving Cecil Shorts, and Sanders to do the heavy lifting.

Description: Jaguars rookie wideout Ace Sanders (concussion) has been cleared to play in Week 8 against the 49ers.
Insight: Sanders has 15 catches for 171 yards over six games this season. He's not on the fantasy radar.

Description: Jaguars rookie wideout Ace Sanders (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Chargers.
Insight: Sanders has yet to post more than 64 yards in a game this season. With Cecil Shorts also likely sidelined it should be the Justin Blackmon Show against San Diego.
