Cornerback Jalen Ramsey carted off field during practice
Dolphins star to undergo meniscus surgery, could be out until December
The Miami Dolphins received some positive news on the Jalen Ramsey injury front after their new star cornerback went down with a serious leg injury during a training camp session on Thursday. The veteran injured his knee, but it's not season-ending, according to ESPN, as his ACL remains intact. Ramsey will reportedly undergo surgery for what is a meniscus injury, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Josina Anderson, and is expected to miss the start of the regular season, and possibly be sidelined until December, per NFL Media.
"I'll be back on that field stronger than ever… in due time! This SO minor for God's child! I trust fully & know He got me! Im forever grateful to worship His name! I know my brothers gone hold it down until I'm back tho! Appreciate the love & support! Time to get right!"
According to a report from NFL Media, no firm determination will be made until surgery, the likely outcome is a full meniscus repair, bringing Ramsey back in December if all goes well. The best and healthiest option.
And judging by Ramsey's latest Tweet, that would seem to be the case.
Ramsey was reportedly guarding Tyreek Hill in coverage when the injury occurred. After being evaluated by trainers, Ramsey reportedly hobbled to the cart and was taken back to the facility. Dolphins safety Jevon Holland said he talked to Ramsey for a bit after the play, and that they are naturally worried about him, per Cameron Wolfe.
Ramsey was traded from the Los Angeles Rams to the Dolphins earlier this offseason for a third-round pick and tight end Hunter Long, sending the Florida State product back to the Sunshine State. The former No. 5 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft is a six-time Pro Bowler, three-time All-Pro and Super Bowl LVI champion.
