Jalen Ramsey is playing against the Arizona Cardinals today. Relax, everybody.
Despite telling reporters in the locker room on Friday he thought he was out for the game, #Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey (hand) is likely to play vs. the #AZCardinals, I'm told. Don't be surprised if he does so.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 26, 2017
The Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback told local media earlier in the week he wouldn’t be playing because of a hand injury, but it seems that was Jalen being sassy, or playing with a chip on his shoulder, or expressing frustration with the media, or... you know what? Who cares?
Jalen was never going to miss this game and it doesn’t matter why he told the media he wouldn’t be able to play -- what matters is that he’s still got an edge this far into the season on the road against an inferior opponent he probably won’t play against for a decade.
So far this season, Ramsey has two interceptions and 14 passes defended.
