Jalen Ramsey says he 'feels great,' will be ready for training camp
The Jacksonville Jaguars can breathe a sigh of relief -- rookie cornerback Jalen Ramsey says the knee he injured shortly after the NFL Draft is healing nicely and he'll be ready when the team kicks off training camp in July,
Ramsey tore the meniscus in his right knee during "Phase Two" workouts with the team, before the beginning of OTAs and underwent surgery on May 23. He's been held out of team activities since then, but has been putting in plenty of work off the field.
From the Jaguars' official team website:
"That has probably helped me even more," Ramsey said. "I've been able to watch a lot of film and just watch the practices and try to stay mentally tuned in and put myself out in the positions out there mentally.
"I ask questions about corner, nickel, and whatever position, but other than that I'm really so motivated and just want to go and do it."
As for the knee, he says the surgery has it in good shape and was even able to run freely on the sideline Wednesday.
"I'm able to do everything. I can do anything," he said after practice.
That's good news for the Jaguars, who were snakebit last season when first-round pick Dante Fowler tore his ACL in his first practice with the team and was lost for the entire season.
