Jags Rookie Ramsey Cleared To Play

   JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jacksonville Jaguars rookie cornerback Jalen Ramsey has been cleared to practice and will be on the field when the team opens training camp Thursday.
 
   General manager Dave Caldwell said Monday that Ramsey, the fifth overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, will be full go less than three months after tearing a meniscus in his right knee.
 
   Offensive lineman Kelvin Beachum (knee) also is expected to practice for the first time since tearing ligaments in his left knee last season. Beachum signed a five-year, $45 million contract with Jacksonville after spending the first four years of his career in Pittsburgh.
 
   Defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks, who missed the final seven games last season with a torn right triceps, also will participate in camp.
 
   All eyes will be on Ramsey, though.
 
   The former Florida State standout injured his knee during drills in May. He finished practice without any problems, and neither he nor the Jaguars have been able to figure out what exactly caused the small meniscus tear. Ramsey said it could have been a "progressive" injury.
 
   Ramsey opted for surgery after getting a second opinion. He started running a little more than two weeks later and insisted he would be ready for camp.
 
   Offensive lineman Luke Bowanko (hip) and defensive end Jonathan Woodard (Achilles' tendon) are expected to start camp on the physically unable to perform list.
