Jalen Ramsey is back. Therefore is his back.
The cornerback practiced for the very first time with the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday because they obtained him from the Jacksonville Jaguars for 2 first-round picks and a fourth-round choice.
Ramsey was noted as a complete participant with the back injury that sidelined him for the last 2 weeks in Duval. He was signed up with on the injury report by running backs Todd Gurley (limited, quad) and Malcolm Brown (DNP, ankle).
Asked Thursday whether he ‘d be ready to play against Julio Jones and the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday afternoon, Ramsey deferred to the coaches and the future.
” We got a couple more days to figure it out. We’re going to do what’s wise for myself and the group but I hope so,” Ramsey stated, per The Los Angeles Times. “I hope I can go help and contribute to a win somehow, someway whether its restricted or whatever.”
Previously in the day, Rams coach Sean McVay was likewise positive that Ramsey would play but didn’t wish to guarantee anything, thinking about the CB’s current back injury.
” The goal is to be able to do that, but we’ll be clever about it,” McVay stated. “I think that we certainly wish to have the intent to get him ready to go and we’ll always make smart choices. But, yes, that’s the goal.”
