TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey was kicked out of practice Sunday after the sophomore was involved in several physical plays, the last ending in quarterback Jameis Winston being knocked to the ground.

Coach Jimbo Fisher says Ramsey was warned and called it a lack of leadership and character.

Fisher says, ''He'll decide if he wants to play at Florida State.''

Last season, Ramsey became the first freshman to start at cornerback at Florida State since Deion Sanders.


Ramsey was previously in a scuffle with running back Karlos Williams and later shoved receiver Kermit Whitfield in the back after a play. He also crushed tight end Ryan Izzo during a non-tackling period. The final straw came when Ramsey blitzed off the edge and knocked Williams into the lower legs of the reigning Heisman winner.
