JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)

Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Justin Blackmon and safety Johnathan Cyprien have been cleared to practice.

Both projected starters passed physicals Monday and were expected on the field for training camp.

Blackmon opened camp on the physically unable to perform list following groin surgery this summer. Cyprien had been on the non-football injury list after tweaking a hamstring during a workout before camp.

Blackmon, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, caught 64 passes for 865 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie last season. He is suspended the first four games of this season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. He had two alcohol-related arrests in the last three years.

Cyprien, a second-round pick from Florida International, has been penciled in as a starter since the draft.
