Ramsey was limited at Thursday's practice with ankle soreness but it appears the Jaguars were simply exercising caution with their star cornerback. The 23-year-old should see his fair share of Odell Beckham during Sunday's game against the Giants.
It's likely that the Jaguars are simply taking a cautious approach with their star cornerback as Sunday's season opener against the Giants approaches. Ramsey's injury warrants monitoring for the next few days, but there's currently no reason to believe that the 23-year-old won't suit up for Week 1.
The ban is in response to Ramsey attacking Jacksonville-area media on social media for what he believes to be unfair coverage of certain teammates, namely Dante Fowler. One of the most dynamic cornerbacks in the NFL, Ramsey has put together stellar back-to-back campaigns to kick off his career. However, he'll miss Saturday's preseason contest at Minnesota due to an off-the-field decision.
Ramsey is slated to once again serve as a key piece of the talented Jaguars secondary, having racked up 63 tackles, 17 passes defensed and four picks during his second year in the league last season.
Ramsey has missed the first four days of training camp while he remains in Nashville following the birth of his daughter, Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com reports.
Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone does not have a date when Ramsey will return. The third-year cornerback, who has not missed a game in two season for Jacksonville, finished sixth on the defense in tackles (62) and tied for second interceptions (2).
