Miami Dolphins cornerback Jalen Ramsey was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury, as per report from Pro Football Network’s Adam Beasley.
The AP News reported that Ramsey was matched up against receiver Tyreek Hill during an 11-on-11 drill when the injury happened. He went down grabbing at his left knee and was attended to by trainers.
The Dolphins acquired Ramsey in an offseason trade with the Los Angeles Rams. Ramsey and the Dolphins agreed to a three-year, $55 million contract with $35.5 million guaranteed as part of the trade agreement.
The Dolphins were to team Ramsey with star Xavien Howard. Ramsey is a six-time Pro Bowler and a Super Bowl champion with the Rams. Howard has been selected to the Pro Bowl team four times.
The extent or diagnosis of Ramsey’s injury is unknown. Dolphins Head Coach Mike McDaniel, who went over to check on Ramsey as trainers gave him a look, is scheduled to hold a press conference Friday morning ahead of the team’s third practice, as reported by the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
It is never good to lose star players. Hopefully, the diagnosis is good for Ramsey. It’s benefit for the NFL to have it’s stars on the field for the regular season.
