The Jacksonville Jaguars are set to host the Tennessee Titans for a divisional contest on Thursday night.
Despite recent trade rumors, star corner Jalen Ramsey revealed he plans to play in the game. Ramsey and head coach Doug Marrone engaged in a confrontation on the sideline last weekend that resulted in Ramsey demanding a trade.
The former first-round pick said he doesn’t expect to be on the team within the next 10 days.
Jaguars owner Shad Khan finally weighed in on the star player’s trade demands before tonight’s game. “This is a team sport. I think I am very sensitive to individual needs, but we have to do the right thing for the team,” he said.

Marrone addressed their relationship after the altercation that took place during the team’s loss to the Houston Texans.
“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.
Several NFL teams have inquired about trading for the star corner. However, the Jaguars’ asking price is reportedly too-high for any team to pull the trigger.
Jacksonville and Tennessee kick off on Thursday night at 8:20 p.m. ET.
