Ramsey" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_PLAYER" data-league-abbreviation="NFL" data-team-abbreviation="LAR">Ramsey notched 44 tackles (36 solo), nine pass breakups and one interception across 15 games in 2020.
Ramsey not only earned his fourth straight Pro Bowl nod in 2020, but he took his game to another level in his first full season with the Rams, receiving first-team All-Pro honors for the second time in his career and making a convincing case for himself as the NFL's top cornerback. Despite having to contend with the likes of DK Metcalf and DeAndre Hopkins within the NFC West, Ramsey remains solidified as one of the league's few true shut-down cornerbacks. Of course, his spectacular skillset keeps the 26-year-old off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest IDP leagues, as dissuading opposing quarterbacks from throwing your way doesn't allow many opportunities to compile defensive stats.

Following Sunday's loss to the 49ers, coach Sean McVay relayed that Ramsey had a "hip thing" that bothered him in warmups and held him to a 69 percent snap share. That thing appears to be in the past, as he wasn't listed on the injury report at all to start the week. Ramsey is preparing to cover Cardinals receiver DeAndre Hopkins in Week 13. The two have plenty of familiarity with each other from their days in the AFC South.

Ramsey collected two tackles and one QB hit during Sunday's 23-20 loss to San Francisco, with the update from McVay going a long way towards explaining his season-low defensive snap count of 50. The one-time All-Pro hadn't missed a single defensive snap over his nine game appearances prior to that. Ramsey jumped offside while the 49ers were lining up for a game-winning field goal with four seconds remaining in regulation, allowing Robbie Gould to convert the walk-off kick from five yards closer. The star cornerback's practice workload will be worth monitoring heading into a Week 13 matchup at Arizona.

Ramsey fell ill ahead of the Rams' Week 8 loss to the Dolphins and was ultimately ruled out prior to the game. Coming off a Week 9 bye, the Pro Bowl cornerback looks to be back to full health, as evidenced by his absence from the injury report. Ramsey has played each of the Rams' defensive snaps when he's been healthy to play, so expect him to do so again Week 10 versus the Seahawks.

Ramsey was dealing with an illness heading into Sunday's road trip to Miami, though he ultimately was not deemed inactive before kickoff. The three-time Pro-Bowl cornerback did not take the field, being downgraded to out amidst a 28-17 defeat to the Dolphins. He seems now to have a clear path towards returning after Los Angeles' Week 9 bye, having recently collected his first interception of 2020 during an Oct. 26 besting of the Bears.

The three-time Pro Bowl corner had been dealing with an illness Sunday morning coming into the contest, though he was not ruled out prior to kickoff. With Miami in control of a three-possession lead by way of offensive, defensive and special-teams touchdowns in the first half, the Rams will elect to rest their star defensive back for the remainder of the day.

The news wasn't announced until after the 1 p.m. ET kickoff, but the 26-year-old's availability for Sunday is apparently in question. Darius Williams and David Long could see increased snaps if Ramsey is unable to play.
Ramsey" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_PLAYER" data-league-abbreviation="NFL" data-team-abbreviation="LAR">Ramsey recorded four solo tackles, an interception and broke up a pass during Monday's 24-10 win over the Bears.
Ramsey is much more valuable to the Rams than he is to fantasy managers, as he's collected just 21 tackles (19 solo) through seven games this season. However, first-year defensive coordinator Brandon Staley has been creative with the Pro Bowler. Ramsey is lining up all over the field, and more tackle and big-play opportunities could present themselves as a result. Still, opposing offenses have tended to target other matchups and avoid throwing Ramsey's way this year and will probably continue to do so.
Ramsey" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_PLAYER" data-league-abbreviation="NFL" data-team-abbreviation="LAR">Ramsey agreed Wednesday with the Rams on a five-year, $105 million contract extension, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Ramsey's $21 million annual average salary resets the market for cornerbacks and makes him the highest-paid defensive back in NFL history by a wide margin. The extension will keep Ramsey on the Rams' books through the 2025 season, and the deal contains $71.2 million guaranteed at signing, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The 25-year-old -- who has earned Pro-Bowl nods in each of the past three seasons -- recorded 33 tackles, four pass breakups, an interception and a forced fumble in nine games with the Rams in 2019 after being acquired from the Jaguars via trade last October.
The Rams don't intend to confine Ramsey to the cornerback position in 2020 and will aim to move him around in coverage to take away the featured receiver of opposing teams, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
First-year defensive coordinator Brandon Staley and Ramsey have been talking multiple times a day, and Staley is bullish about Ramsey's command of all the positions in the defensive backfield. Being primarily deployed in a shutdown role as a cornerback limited Ramsey's fantasy upside in the past, so added positional versatility could provide more tackle and big-play opportunities for the perennial Pro Bowler. Entering the final year of his rookie deal in 2020, Ramsey remains eager to reach a long-term extension with the Rams, but he said Tuesday that he'll report to training camp even if a new deal isn't in place, according to Steve Wyche of NFL Network.
Ramsey" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_PLAYER" data-league-abbreviation="NFL" data-team-abbreviation="LAR">Ramsey will sit out Week 17 against the Cardinals due to a Grade 2 LCL strain, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Ramsey picked up the injury this past Saturday in San Francisco, and despite being listed as 'doubtful' to return, he did just that and didn't miss a defensive snap. Afterward, he told Thiry that he would have an MRI on the affected knee, which revealed the extent of the issue. Coach Sean McVay relayed Tuesday that Ramsey's recovery will "take anywhere between a month, a month and a half, but it should heal on its own," according to Cameron DaSilva of USA Today. Consequently, Ramsey will be healthy early on during an offseason in which his representation may negotiate that lucrative extension he's been seeking.

Ramsey exited due to the injury and was considered doubtful to return, but he ended up returning to the field in short order. The 25-year-old had four solo tackles and grabbed his first interception of the season. The severity of the injury should be clarified within the next couple days, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the team remain cautious Week 17 after being eliminated from the playoffs.
Ramsey" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_PLAYER" data-league-abbreviation="NFL" data-team-abbreviation="LAR">Ramsey (back) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Coming off full practices Thursday and Friday, the star cornerback doesn't have a game designation on the Rams' final injury report for Week 7. It isn't clear if Ramsey will step right into an every-down role, but he figures to contribute in some capacity.
Ramsey" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_PLAYER" data-league-abbreviation="NFL" data-team-abbreviation="LAR">Ramsey (back) was listed on the injury report but logged a full practice Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
It was Ramsey's first practice since joining his new team. When asked about Ramsey's status heading into the Rams' Week 7 matchup against the Falcons, coach Sean McVay said they would rely on Ramsey to communicate how he was feeling after the practice, according to Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com. If Ramsey is able to suit up, he figures to line up across from Julio Jones for the majority -- if not all -- of his snaps.

While Ramsey did not take the practice field Wednesday after getting traded to the Rams on Tuesday, his absence did not appear to be injury related. A back issue kept him on the Jacksonville injury report for much of the early part of the season, but according to John Reid of The Florida Times-Union, Ramsey has passed his physical and is good to go. The type of snap count Rams fans can expect Ramsey to see remains a question mark, though his tremendous ability in man coverage is surely something any coach could use in a game plan -- even if it's on short notice.
Ramsey" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_PLAYER" data-league-abbreviation="NFL" data-team-abbreviation="LAR">Ramsey (back) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice but his absence wasn't injury related, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Ramsey missed the last three games with the back issue but now appears ready to go after being traded from the Jaguars to the Rams on Tuesday. According to Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times, the All-Pro cornerback arrived in L.A. on Wednesday and underwent a physical, which helps explain his non-participation. Ramsey will take over as the Rams' No. 1 corner after the team shipped Marcus Peters to the Ravens and placed Aqib Talib (ribs) on injured reserve.
Ramsey was traded to the Rams on Tuesday in exchange for first-round picks in 2020 and 2021 and a fourth-round pick in 2021, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Rams exchanged one All-Pro cornerback for another Tuesday, sending Marcus Peters to Baltimore before making this deal. After falling to 3-3 on Sunday, the team has entered must-win territory to remain in the playoff picture with the 49ers and Seahawks currently ahead of them in the NFC West standings. Assuming he can get over his back injury quickly, Ramsey's first chance to play arrives this Sunday in Atlanta. As for his long-term future, the Rams have the advantage of the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, which goes through the 2020 season, but the sides may opt to work out a long-term extension if all goes well with his new squad.
Ramsey (back) is inactive for Sunday's Week 6 tilt against the Saints.
Ramsey was reportedly trending toward suiting up for the first time since Week 3 as the week came to a close, with no less than Jaguars owner Shad Khan confirming that notion after a personal meeting with the mercurial cornerback. However, Ramsey is apparently still not ready to suit up, leaving the Jacksonville defense short-handed in the secondary for at least one more week.
Ramsey (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.
Ramsey returned to practice this week as a limited participant, but owner Shad Khan said earlier this week he expects the cornerback to play versus New Orleans. The 24-year-old hasn't seen game action since Sept. 19
Jaguars owner Shad Khan expects Ramsey (back) to suit up for Sunday's game against the Saints, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.
Ramsey is nursing a lingering back injury, and he's now practiced on a limited basis for two consecutive days. The Jaguars are likely trying to avoid a setback in Ramsey's recovery, and he'll have one more opportunity to shed his injury tag ahead of Sunday's contest. The star cornerback missed the team's previous two games.
