The injury is reportedly not as serious as the one to the knee of last year's first-round pick, Dante Fowler, who missed the entire 2015 campaign with a torn left ACL. The incident occurred during camp that took place on May 6th and 7th, but Ramsey finished the practice despite the pain.
An MRI the next day revealed the tear, and he will go through one of two surgical processes. One would keep him out four to six weeks, while the other will keep him out four to six months. He will have a second opinion next week with Dr. James Andrews.
The Jaguars are hopeful that the defensive back will be ready to go in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, but that will depend on the process that is determined as best for him. Ramsey is not yet signed, but sources say this injury will not affect that deal.
The injury is to his right knee, the same one he underwent microfracture surgery on during his sophomore year of high school. Ramsey now joins Myles Jack on the list of draft picks dealing with injuries. Jack may also undergo microfracture surgery due to issues with his surgically repaired right knee.
The last five years, the Jaguars have had high first-round picks, but every last one of them have found their way off the filed. Justin Blackmon has been suspended, Luke Joeckel has been placed on IR, Blake Bortles leads the league in times sacked, which has caused injury, and now the injuries to Fowler and Ramsey. Jacksonville is hoping the young stars can find their way to health, and help the team right the ship in the AFC South.
