FOX Sports NFL Insider Mike Garafolo reports Ramsey is expected to need about six weeks of recovery time. That means the Jaguars and their fans can breathe a sigh of relief, unlike last season when 2015 first-round pick Dante Fowler Jr. suffered a season-ending torn ACL in rookie workouts in May.

Ramsey, drafted fifth overall by the Jaguars, suffered the injury during on-field workouts last week
