Introducing Jalen Ramsey, the highly anticipated addition to the Miami Dolphins this season. Unfortunately, during training camp, he faced an unexpected knee injury that resulted in him being carted off the field.
In the hopes of bolstering Mike McDaniel’s team, the Miami Dolphins made a significant trade for cornerback Jalen Ramsey this offseason. It was expected to be a pivotal move, taking them closer to success. However, fate seemed unkind as the training camp injury woes struck in South Beach.
Excitement filled the air at the Dolphins training camp as they kicked off recently. However, during Thursday’s practice, things took an unfortunate turn for Jalen Ramsey. As he was covering Tyreek Hill in a drill, he suddenly went down, clutching his left knee, as reported by ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe.
The training staff rushed to his side, carefully evaluating the situation for several minutes. Eventually, they brought out the cart to transport the star defensive back to the locker room for further treatment and evaluation.

As of now, there are no further updates regarding the extent of Ramsey’s injury or his current status. However, fellow Dolphins cornerback Kader Kohou offered some reassurance, telling Pro Football Network’s Adam H. Beasley, “He’s gonna be good.” This comforting remark came after practice when Kohou had a chance to speak with Ramsey in the locker room.
While there’s no official word from the team yet, it’s worth noting that the Dolphins had already made some changes to their cornerback lineup in the offseason. With veteran Byron Jones gone, Ramsey, Xavien Howard, and Kohou were identified as the top players in that position, forming a formidable secondary. This strong defense complements the high expectations for their offense, led by Tua Tagovailoa, which many believe will be one of the league’s most potent if Tagovailoa remains healthy and the team continues to make upgrades.
Fortunately, the Dolphins have solid depth in their roster, including second-round rookie Cam Smith, former first-rounder Noah Igbinoghene, Nik Needham (currently on the PUP list), and Keion Crossen. However, it’s undeniable that Ramsey’s absence would be deeply felt, as he has consistently been one of the best cornerbacks in the league for several years now.
