The Jaguars have suspended cornerback Jalen Ramsey and defensive end Dante Fowler, the team announced Sunday. While Fowler cannot play in the game against the New York Giants, he can participate in the preseason and workout with the team.

Fowler was involved in a fight at Jaguars practice on Sunday that was documented by a local reporter. Ramsey evidently took exception with the media for filming the incident, as he yelled "stop recording that s-, man!" at reporters, per ESPN's Michael DiRocco. Ramsey made his threat via Twitter.

The whole thing seemingly started during practice and carried off the field. Angry words were exchanged between Fowler and Ngakoue as they left the session, leading to a skirmish in which no punches were thrown.

The pair then resumed hostilities outside the practice field gates and needed separating by team-mates, coaches and security.

Wallabies captain Michael Hooper said: "I never really thought about going elsewhere or entertaining anything like that". Beale said the team were focused on starting well, something they did not manage in the corresponding Test past year .

The altercation came on the last of 11 consecutive practices in full pads and in sweltering heat and humidity.

For his part, Fowler has been involved in training camp altercations in the past, and he was previously suspended by the National Football League for Week 1 of this season, for a July 2017 incident in which he punched a man who made a comment about his driving in a parking lot. Both players were suspended for one week.

Fowler also was arrested in Miami Beach in March 2016 and charged with misdemeanor counts of assault against a police officer and resisting arrest without violence. Ramsey and Fowler being suspended is going to hurt the team's preparation more than it will the two players probably. Fowler was just activated from the physically unable to perform list on Saturday.

Fowler was the team's top draft pick in 2015 out of Florida but never saw the field his rookie season. the third pick in the NFL Draft that season torn his ACL in rookie minicamp and had surgery to fix his knee. He has 14 sacks the last two seasons, including two in the AFC championship game.
