Rams CB Jalen Ramsey Underwent Shoulder Surgery

Jalen Ramsey went under the knife today. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter), the Rams cornerback has surgery on his shoulder. Ramsey is expected to be ready to go for the start of the regular season.

According to Rapoport, Ramsey played all of last season with “tears in both shoulders.” Specifically, the cornerback “played through dual sprained AC joints” for about half the year, per Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic (on Twitter). Since Ramsey was recently able to participate in workouts and on-field work, Rodrigue speculates that today’s surgery was merely a clean-up procedure.

Ramsey had another incredible season in 2021, culminating in him earning a Super Bowl ring. He finished the regular season with 77 tackles, 16 passes defended, and four interceptions in 16 games, with Pro Football Focus grading him as the top CB in the NFL. The performance also earned him his fifth Pro Bowl nod and third first-team All-Pro recognition. Ramsey started each of the Rams four playoff contests, collecting another 13 tackles.

The Rams brought in Troy Hill this offseason to pair with Ramsey. Since Ramsey will presumably be limited during the preseason, Robert Rochell, David Long Jr., and Decobie Durant should have more opportunities to compete for the third spot on the depth chart.
