JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey is now the father of two girls.
Ramsey's second daughter has arrived, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone confirmed on Friday.
"First of all, congratulations to Jalen and his family on the birth of his second daughter. Both mom and baby are healthy and obviously, that's important. We've been in communication and we'll see. If anything comes up, I'll make sure you guys are aware of it," Marrone said.
Ramsey's Twitter account bio has been updated to read, "Dada to Queens Breelyn & Brooklyn." This is Ramsey and Breanna Tate's second child. Daughter Breelyn was born in July 2018.
Marrone said Ramsey was questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos.
"He's listed as questionable. Personal with the baby being born and with his low back [injury], so questionable probably puts it right where it is," Marrone said.
Earlier this month, Ramsey requested to be traded from the Jaguars. On Monday, Ramsey called out sick from practice. On Wednesday, he was out of practice with a back injury. Then, Wednesday night, Marrone announced that Ramsey would be leaving the team to go to Nashville to be with his family for the birth of his second child.
"He will return to the team when he's ready, and we will provide an update at that time," Marrone said in a statement Wednesday night.
In an appearance on the Uninterrupted "17 Weeks" podcast with Nate Burleson, Ramsey said the trade request stemmed from "some disrespectful things said on their end" in a meeting after the Jaguars' loss at Houston.
"Requesting the trade ... it's kind of been building over time," Ramsey said on the podcast, which was taped Monday. "It has nothing to do with my teammates here. It has nothing to do with the city. ... But it's more so with the front office and the organization."
