The Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans are set for a Thursday Night Football match-up that features two of the best defenses in the NFL.

Jacksonville enters the game with an 0-2 record after the team faltered against the Houston Texans last weekend. The Jaguars suffered more than just defeat.

Head coach Doug Marrone and star corner Jalen Ramsey engaged in a confrontation on the sideline. Following the game, Ramsey reportedly asked to be traded by the team.

Marrone addressed Ramsey's status for Thursday night.

It doesn't look like he'll be moved - at least not before Thursday night's game.

"Jalen and I have always had a good open relationship... we sat down yesterday and talked about what went on with him and I... that’s behind us right now," Marrone told reporters.

Earlier this week Ramsey said he plans to play for the Jaguars on Thursday - unless he's traded beforehand. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported a trade isn't likely until Friday at the earliest, meaning Ramsey will play for the Jags this week.

Ramsey is arguably the best player at his position and there is a trade market for him. The Kansas City Chiefs have reportedly inquired about a potential trade.

Jacksonville and Tennessee kick off on Thursday night at 8:20 p.m. ET.
