Ramsey underwent surgery Thursday to repair a core muscle injury.
Ramsey's injury apparently developed during Jacksonville's OTAs, after which it was determined that surgery would be the best route to ensure he's fully fit for the upcoming campaign. With his operation usually coinciding with a six-week recovery period, Ramsey may be inhibited to start training camp, but the procedure shouldn't impact his Week 1 status. Last year's fifth overall pick, Ramsey enjoyed an excellent rookie season, totaling 65 tackles, 14 pass defenses, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a defensive touchdown while playing all 16 games.
Ramsey was able to return to Sunday's game against the Packers after suffering a minor ankle sprain, Ryan O'halloran of Jacksonville.com reports.
Ramsey, the Jaguars first-round draft pick back in April, made his NFL regular season debut on Sunday. He drew the start at cornerback, but temporarily left the game with a minor ankle sprain. However, Ramsey returned later in the contest and finished with two tackles, which suggests the injury is unlikely to be a factor moving forward. Unless he's limited at practice throughout the week, expect Ramsey to be a full go moving forward.
The Jaguars are optimistic Ramsey will be able to return during Sunday's contest, as the team has their hands full trying to shut down the likes of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Ramsey sat out of the game from a precautionary standpoint after he underwent knee surgery in May. He's been a full-go at practice during the preseason and that shouldn't change this week.
Ramsey (knee) will be held out of Thursday's preseason matchup with the Jets, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.
Ramsey has been a full-go throughout training camp after having surgery in May to repair a partial tear in his right meniscus. The Jaguars are going to remain cautious with their 2016 first-round pick, however, so he'll have to wait to make his NFL debut. Ramsey isn't in danger of missing any regular season action and he should continue to battle for a starting role moving forward.
