Shad Khan expects Jalen Ramsey will play on Sunday
Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan expects Jalen Ramsey to play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, but an ESPN report suggests the cornerback isn’t so sure.
“Well, I think he’s going to be playing this week, so hopefully you’ll tune into the Saints game,” Khan told The Street, a business website, in a video interview Thursday. “I met him a couple of days ago, had a heart-to-heart, and I think we’ll be able to come to whatever makes sense for all.”
ESPN reported later Thursday that Ramsey is still “going to listen to his body,” and nothing has changed about his desire to be traded. Ramsey, 24, was limited at practice with a back injury for the second straight day, after sitting out the last two weeks due to the ailment.
Khan has been vocal about his desire not to trade Ramsey, who requested a trade after Week 2. Reports have said the team was seeking a minimum of two first-round picks, but Khan prefers to keep Ramsey and sign him to a long-term contract.
