JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars' first draft selection again has sustained a knee injury.
Cornerback Jalen Ramsey, the No. 5 overall selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, has sustained a small tear to the meniscus in his right knee during Phase 2 of on-field workouts. The team announced the injury in a release Thursday afternoon.
Ramsey is obtaining a second opinion next week, according to the team. The team's statement also said that more information will be available when Head Team Physician Kevin Kaplan and the Jaguars' athletic training staff determine the appropriate medical care.
Dante Fowler Jr., the No. 3 overall selection by the Jaguars in the 2015 NFL Draft, missed the 2015 season after sustaining a torn anterior cruciate ligament on the first day of rookie minicamp.
Whereas a torn ACL typically is a season-ending injury, recovery time for a meniscus injury varies widely based on the nature of the tear.
