DENVER, Colo. – Jalen Ramsey won't play Sunday.
Ramsey, the Jaguars' two-time Pro Bowl cornerback, on Sunday afternoon was ruled inactive an hour and a half before kickoff of the team's Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos at Empower Field at Mile High.
Ramsey had started the first 51 regular-season games of his career.
Ramsey, who missed practice this week because of illness, a back injury and the birth of his second child, flew to Denver with the team on Saturday. He was ruled inactive because of the back issue.
Ramsey had requested a trade following a Week 2 loss to the Houston Texans, then started and played the following Thursday's victory over the Tennessee Titans. He sustained the back issue during that game, then missed practice the following Monday because of illness.
The back injury kept him out of Wednesday's practice and he flew to Nashville that night for the birth of his child before returning to Jacksonville to fly to Denver with the team.
Also inactive for the Jaguars Sunday: wide receiver C.J. Board, running back Devine Ozigbo, linebacker D.J. Alexander, offensive line Brandon Thomas, tight end Josh Oliver and defensive tackle Dontavius Russell.
