Although he has been on the practice field this week, the Jaguars have announced that cornerback Jalen Ramsey is listed as questionable for Sunday.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially announced that Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at home against the New Orleans Saints. The news comes a day after a story quoting team owner Shad Khan stating he believed Ramsey, who has been sidelined the previous two weeks due to a back ailment, would play at home.
It was also announced that linebacker Lerentee McCray has also been listed as questionable as well. The Jaguars are set to face the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at 1:00 at TIAA Bank Field. Should Ramsey not play, it will mark the third straight week he has missed time on the field.
The Jaguars face a loaded offense for New Orleans that includes running back Alvin Kamara and wide receiver Michael Thomas.
"“He’s been able to progress a little bit,” head coach Doug Marrone said Friday when he talked to the media. “He’s out there working hard trying to get more and more done each day. Today we got a little bit more done than yesterday. So we’re just taking it step by step."

"“He’ll get treatment again today. He’s up to date with the plan, so then he’ll come in and we’ll try to do some work again [Saturday] and just keep working it. Just keep doing the best job we can. He’s doing a good job, working hard with the plan, doing whatever we’re asking him to do. We’re trying to get it where he can get out there and play.”"
Jacksonville will also be without rookie tight end Josh Oliver, who is still dealing with a hamstring injury he suffered in training camp. The third-round pick out of San Jose State has yet to suit up in an NFL game. His absence is even more pronounced given the team lost James O’Shaughnessy this past weekend in the game against Carolina due to a torn ACL.
