About this Article

Justin Blackmon's latest violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy will cost him money -- maybe lots of it. The league suspended Blackmon on Tuesday for the first four games of the 2013 season for his second violation in less than a year. He will not get paid for the four-week hiatus. Maybe more importantly, the suspension triggers language in his contract that voids future guarantees.
