JACKSONVILLE, FLA – The strange odyssey of Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey continues.
Jacksonville listed Ramsey as inactive with a back issue for Sunday afternoon's game at Denver, the first game of his career that he will miss.
It has been an odd two weeks for Ramsey and the Jaguars.
He requested a trade following a loss to Houston two weeks ago and played in a game against the Titans on Sept. 19 amidst rampant speculation that he would be dealt.
Ramsey has since missed practice with a sickness, flew to Los Angeles to film a commercial, missed another practice with back problems and left to be with his family in Nashville while awaiting the birth of his second daughter. Coach Doug Marrone said that the family and Ramsey's newborn daughter were all doing well.
Ramsey returned to the Jaguars before the team left for Denver, prompting excitement that the Pro Bowl corner would play against the Broncos. Ramsey had not missed a game at either Florida State or with the Jaguars.
Ramsey has gone on the "Uninterrupted" 17 Weeks podcast twice and voiced his desire to be traded due to "disrespect," presumably at Jaguars executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin.
