Jaguars suspend Jalen Ramsey, Dante Fowler for Week

Jacksonville banned corner-ball Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Dante Fowler for a week for "injurious team rules and inappropriate behavior of a Jaguar footballer," the team announced Sunday.


Under the suspension, no player will be available to practice this week or play at the next game of Pikes against the Vikings on Saturday.
