The rookie cornerback will have a second opinion performed shortly. Injuries to first-round picks are becoming a trend for the Jaguars after defensive end, Dante Fowler missed all of last season with a torn ACL.
It is still unknown how severe the injury to Ramsey is, but he did have microfracture surgery on his right knee after his freshman year in high school.
