NFL: Ramsey, Fowler Suspened After Sunday Practice Incident

The Jacksonville Jaguars have suspended cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Dante Fowler Jr.

The team released a statement saying the two were suspended “for violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars football player.”

According to ESPN the week suspension is a result of Fowler’s involvement in a post-practice altercation today and Ramsey’s profane rant directed toward the media filming the incident.

The Jaguars have signed fifth-year CB Kenneth Acker and undrafted rookie CB Bryce Canady, the club announced today. To make room on the roster, the Jaguars released fifth-year CB Dexter McDougle and waived first-year CB Charlie Miller.

Acker has played in 40 games (15 starts) in his NFL career, most recently playing all 16 games in 2017 with Kansas City. In his two seasons with the Chiefs (2016-17), Acker appeared in 25 games and recorded 35 tackles (34 solo), four passes defensed, one INT and one fumble recovery. In 2015, Acker played in 15 games (13 starts) with the San Francisco 49ers and posted 63 tackles (53 solo), eight passes defensed and three INTs (returned for 45 yards). As a rookie, Acker spent the season on the reserve/injured list.

Canady, a Jacksonville native, played at Florida International from 2016-17. As a senior, he played in all 13 games with the Panthers and produced 65 tackles (50 solo), one INT, seven passes defensed and three fumble recoveries. Canady played locally at Paxton H.S.
