Coach of the Dolphins’ CBs gives a major injury update for their star DB.

STAR cornerback Jalen Ramsey’s injury is improving, according to Miami Dolphins cornerbacks coach Sam Madison’s Thursday update to the fans.

After being traded by the Los Angeles Rams to the Dolphins in March, the 28-year-old sustained a torn meniscus during training camp.
Less than two weeks before the regular season started, at the end of August, Ramsey was placed on injured reserve.

When the six-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro selection isn’t in the starting lineup this autumn, the Miami defense is ranked in the lower half of the league in terms of points surrendered (26th), yards allowed per game (23rd), passing yards allowed per game (20th), and rushing yards allowed per contest (18th). They could definitely use the assistance in the secondary, especially with Week 9 in Germany in early November and a game against the Kansas City Chiefs not too far off.

Head coach Mike McDaniel’s team has more than made up for their deficiencies in defense with a strong offensive line that includes MVP contenders wide receiver Tyreek Hill and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in addition to a plethora of other players.

In 17 games in 2022, Ramsey equaled his career-best numbers for interceptions (four) and forced fumbles (two), and he set career highs in combined tackles (88), solo tackles (64), passes defended (18), and sacks (2 points).
With 18 passes defended, the fifth overall pick in 2016 finished second in the NFL, only surpassed by Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, the defensive rookie of the year, who finished with 20.

The previous season, Ramsey demonstrated his unwavering durability by participating in a record-breaking 1,077 defensive snaps (99 percent) and seeing 126 special teams snaps.
