TWITTER RANT GONE WRONG.. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS!
The Jaguars have suspended cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. for a week because of Fowler’s involvement in a post-practice altercation Sunday and Ramsey’s profane rant directed toward the media filming the incident.
The team released a statement saying the two were suspended “for violating team rules and conduct unbecoming of a Jaguars football player.”
Fowler got into an altercation with Yannick Ngakoue shortly after practice ended and the two players twice had to be separated by fellow defensive ends Calais Campbell and Carroll Phillips and defensive tackle Abry Jones. No punches were thrown.
Fowler and Ngakoue left the field surrounded by teammates, but the argument flared again moments later on the outside walkway leading to the entrance to the locker room inside TIAA Bank Field. The players again had to be separated by teammates.
Ramsey was not happy that members of the media filmed the first incident between Fowler and Ngakoue and yelled at the local media to “stop recording that s—, man!” Ramsey continued to yell at the media and use profane language as he left the practice field.
Ramsey also sent out several tweets Sunday afternoon, including one in which he explained that he was sticking up for Fowler.
Ian Rapoport reported Ramsey’s suspension was a direct result of the cornerback going after a local reporter on Twitter on Sunday.
Fowler, who also is suspended for Week 1 for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, was involved in a fight that broke out at Jaguars practice on Sunday. The scuffle was documented by the beat writer, and Ramsey responded to the reporter with the following tweet. “@phillip_heilman you know you done messed up right? Lol if y’all want war, we got sum for y’all. & Iknow the rest of y’all (you know who you are) gone read this too so just know #LameAssReporters”.
