Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey said he will not play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
Ramsey is listed as questionable on Friday’s game-status report with a hand injury, but when approached by ESPN in the locker room and asked whether he would be able to play Sunday, he looked up from his phone and said, “Nah.”
He also told a reporter from the Florida Times-Union moments later that he would not play.
Ramsey suffered his hand injury during practice Friday while going for a football, coach Doug Marrone said.
In addition to Ramsey, right tackle Jermey Parnell (knee), left guard Patrick Omameh (quad) and linebacker Donald Payne (hamstring) are questionable. Receiver Allen Hurns (ankle) is out, which is not a surprise since he hasn’t practiced since he suffered his injury against the Los Angeles Chargers on Nov. 12.
With Ramsey declaring himself out, that likely means nickelback Aaron Colvin will start outside, opposite A.J. Bouye.
Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey, who was listed as questionable with a hand injury, will play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
Ramsey, who suffered the injury during Friday’s practice, had told reporters he wasn’t going to play, but his condition has apparently improved over the past two days
The Jaguars would use nickelback Aaron Colvin opposite A.J. Bouye if Ramsey is slowed by the injury.
Even if Ramsey is limited in Sunday’s game, Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said the Jaguars cornerback is still a formidable opponent.
“Jalen Ramsey with one hand is better than 95 percent of the cornerbacks in the league,” Fitzgerald told azcentral.com on Friday.
Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey said Friday he’ll miss Sunday’s road game against the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium due to a hand injury.
Michael DiRocco of ESPN.com provided the update from Ramsey, who suffered the injury during Friday’s practice session. He’s listed as questionable for the contest.
After being drafted No. 5 overall in 2016, Ramsey has emerged as a standout defender for the Jaguars. He leads the team with 14 passes defensed and is third on the team with two interceptions.
The Jaguars spent big money in the offseason to sign A.J. Bouye from the Houston Texans to boost their secondary. His presence on the field opposite Ramsey has helped Jacksonville’s defense rank first in the NFL in both scoring defense (14.1 points) and yards allowed per game(275.6).
That defensive boost has led to the Jaguars climbing atop the AFC South standings and chasing their first playoff berth since 2007.
Losing Ramsey significantly weakens Jacksonville’s entire defense. Tyler Patmon, who spent last season as a practice squad player for three different teams, will likely take over as the primary cornerback on the left side for the time being.
