Jalen Ramsey to leave team for birth of daughter

It has been a very interesting week for Jaguars corner Jalen Ramsey. He did not report to practice on Monday due to illness, and today, Ramsey did not practice because of a sore back.

Now, according to a statement from Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone, Ramsey will be away from the team as he awaits the birth of his daughter.

Here is the statement from Marrone below:

“Months ago in the offseason, Jalen notified me that he was expecting the birth of his second child in late September. We spoke about this recently and again today after practice and decided that it was best for Jalen to fly to Nashville tonight after meetings to be with his family during the birth of their daughter. He will return to the team when he’s ready, and we will provide an update at that time.”

With his recent trade request, it will be interesting to see if or when Ramsey will return to the team, but for now, best wishes to Ramsey and his family.
