The Jaguars would not address whether Ramsey would be healthy in time for the beginning of training camp. Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell underwent surgery for a similar injury in March with an expected recovery time of about six weeks.
“I want to and will be the best version of myself that I can be for the upcoming 2017 season,” Ramsey said in a statement. “I will attack this rehab, refine my body and work as hard as I ever have to come the best defensive back in the league and to make everyone, including my family, teammates & city, proud of who I am.”
Jaguars veterans are scheduled to report on July 26.
Ramsey was drafted with the fifth overall pick in the 2016 draft. He started every game as a rookie and finished with 65 tackles, 14 pass breakups, one forced fumble and two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown.
He missed all of organized team activities and minicamp in 2016 after he underwent surgery on his right knee to repair a small tear in his meniscus, which he suffered during Phase 2 of offseason conditioning.
