Florida Times-Union - [Full Article]

Jaguars receiver Ace Sanders remains away from the team due to a personal leave of absence, but his return could be in the works.

Sanders announced July 22 he would not be reporting to training camp to attend to a personal issue. A day later, the NFL announced Sanders would be suspended the first four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Sanders re-appeared on Twitter Saturday and coach Gus Bradley said Sanders’ being back for the final preseason game Aug. 28 against Atlanta is possible.

“[Sanders is] doing really well, the minimal contact we’ve had and it’s been texting back and forth,” coach Gus Bradley said after practice today. “His response has been really good. A couple weeks ago, we thought there might be a chance for the fourth preseason game.”

Sanders’ upcoming suspension allows him to play in the preseason and be around the team during the ban.

If Sanders reports to camp in good shape, Bradley said he wouldn’t hesitate playing him.

“I believe he’s been working out, but it’s never the same,” Bradley said. “Before we say, ‘Yes, he’s definitely playing,’ we would have to see how he is. But if everything goes good and he’s in shape and ready to go and he’s back here, then we would do that.”
