Jalen Ramsey wants to be traded from the Jacksonville Jaguars. That's no secret. The franchise has yet to find a suitable trading partner. And in the interim, Gardner Minshew has materialized into a competent NFL quarterback and competing in the division has become more of a realistic dream.

If Ramsey is suddenly more excited about playing for the team, he has a funny way of showing it. The highly-skilled cornerback has called in sick to work today, and quite possibly won't practice all week, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Or maybe he's just sick. This is the time of the year when that can happen. Early autumn is especially tough in Northern Florida, what with the temperature dipping into the low 70s.

This may be one of those times where, though not necessary, it wouldn't hurt to get a doctor's note to quiet his co-workers' chatter in the breakroom.
