Jaguars (0-2) host Titans while fighting inner hostility

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey showed up for training camp in a Brinks truck.Based on his actions Monday, when he asked for a trade, it sounds like he’d prefer a moving van these days.”Right now,” Ramsey said Tuesday afternoon, “I’m still a part of the Jacksonville Jaguars.”And that may not even be the biggest issue facing coach Doug Marrone as he tries to get Jacksonville into the win column Thursday night against the visiting Tennessee Titans.Marrone’s daring call to go for two points and the win Sunday at Houston backfired when running back Leonard Fournette was stopped inches short of the goal line after Gardner Minshew’s 4-yard touchdown pass to DJ Chark with 30 seconds left.”I loved the play,” Marrone said. “I looked at it all week. At the end of the day, we just didn’t get enough push up front. Really, when you look at it on film, I wish we were able to get more push. I’m sure the players did.”The 13-12 defeat dropped the Jaguars to 0-2, making this game a must-win situation if they are to entertain hopes of contending for the AFC South title. And Marrone’s sideline confrontation with Ramsey was arguably a bigger story Monday than the failed gambit at the end of the loss in Houston.Upset that a DeAndre Hopkins catch in the first quarter wasn’t challenged, Ramsey had words with Marrone as he approached the Jacksonville sideline after the Texans’ possession ended. Ramsey walked to the bench and Marrone followed him to continue the conversation.It got heated enough between the duo that safety Ronnie Harrison had to walk Marrone back toward the sideline. A day later, Marrone opted to shrug it off as a situation where emotions boiled over.”These things happen,” he said. “They happen all the time; they really do. I think now they’re a little bit more publicized, but ever since I played there’s always stuff that goes on during the course of a game. These things occur.”
