Jaguars suspend Jalen Ramsey, Dante Fowler for weekAugust 13, 2018
The Jacksonville Jaguars have suspended two of their top defensive players.
Under the suspension, neither player will be available to practice this week or to play in the Jags’ next game against the Vikings on Saturday.
Ramsey played briefly in Jacksonville’s preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints on Thursday. Fowler was just activated from the physically unable to perform list on Saturday.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Ramsey’s suspension was a direct result of the cornerback going after a local reporter on Twitter on Sunday.
Fowler was involved in a fight that broke out at Jaguars practice on Sunday. The scuffle was documented by the beat writer, and Ramsey responded to the reporter with the below tweet.
@phillip_heilman you know you done messed up right? Lol if yâ€™all want war, we got sum for yâ€™all. & Iknow the rest of yâ€™all (you know who you are) gone read this too so just know #LameAssReporters
Ramsey issued this tweet in response to the suspension:
Iâ€™m always gone take up for my teammates kus I know what type of men and players they are forreal! Love my dawgs! If you donâ€™t like it, oh well. God bless ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ï¿½
