Jaguars rule out CB Jalen Ramsey for game at Panthers

October 04, 2019 - 1:41 pm

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars have ruled out star cornerback Jalen Ramsey for Sunday's game at Carolina.

Ramsey sat out his seventh consecutive practice Friday and will miss his second straight game because of an apparent back injury. He hadn't missed a game in his four-year NFL career until last week.

Coach Doug Marrone said Ramsey likely will see a back specialist in the coming days.

Second-year pro Tre Herndon will replace Ramsey in the starting lineup against the Panthers. Denver picked on Herndon last week.

Ramsey said on a weekly podcast starring NFL players that his back has been "extremely tight."
