On Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they have suspended cornerback Jalen Ramsey. Also, defensive end Dante Fowler was suspended. This was for one week. Thus meaning both players will miss their preseason game. The missed game against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday.

The team said the suspension was a result of Fowler’s involvement. An altercation after practice on Sunday occured. Ramsey’s profane rant about the media members that filmed the altercation.

In a statement, the Jacksonville Jaguars said, the two were suspended “for violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars football player.”

Fowler got into an altercation with teammate Yannick Ngakoue shortly after practice ended and the two players twice had to be separated by Calais Campbell and Carroll Phillips as well as defensive tackle Abry Jones. No punches were thrown during the altercation.

After they were separated by their teammates, the two got into it again as they were leaving the field and had to be separated once again.

Jalen Ramsey got upset because he saw media members filming the altercation between Fowler and Ngakoue and yelled at the local media to “stop recording that s—, man!” He continued to yell at the media and use profane language as he left the practice field. We would be too.

After the practice session ended, Ramsey sent out a series of tweets and tried to explain why he was sticking up for Fowler.

“I’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 don’t like it, oh well. God bless,” Ramsey wrote.

In addition to his one week suspension, Fowler will miss the season opener. This was punishment for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. Resulting from a July 2017 arrest and subsequent plea deal. The case was involving battery, criminal mischief and petty theft charges.

In short, the Jaguars are doomed.
