Jaguars GM: Rookie Jalen Ramsey cleared to practice
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars rookie cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been cleared to practice and will be on the field when the team opens training camp Thursday.
General manager Dave Caldwell said Monday that Ramsey, the fifth overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, will be full go less than three months after tearing a meniscus in his right knee.
Offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum (knee) also is expected to practice for the first time since tearing ligaments in his left knee last season. Beachum signed a five-year, $45 million contract with Jacksonville after spending the first four years of his career in Pittsburgh.
Defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks, who missed the final seven games last season with a torn right triceps, also will participate in camp.
