Jalen Ramsey ruled out of Week 5 with back issue

The Jacksonville Jaguars ruled star cornerback Jalen Ramsey out of their Week 5 contest against the Carolina Panthers with a back injury.

Ramsey didn’t play in Week 4 either, and that absence was also blamed on the back injury that popped up early last week.

However, underneath all this is the simple fact that Ramsey wants to be traded away from Jacksonville. But the Jaguars have made it clear they would rather keep him than trade him at this point.

So, we won’t blame you if you’re thinking this apparent nagging injury is nothing more than a ploy by Ramsey to force Jacksonville’s hand.
