Green, Ramsey fight during Jaguars’ victory over Bengals
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Cincinnati receiver A.J. Green and Jacksonville cornerback Jalen Ramsey got into a fight Sunday during the Jaguars’ 23-7 win over the Bengals.
After Ramsey pushed Green to the ground at the end of a running play, Green grabbed Ramsey around the neck and slammed him to the ground. Green then delivered numerous punches to Ramsey’s helmet and put another choke hold on Ramsey.
Green and Ramsey were ejected, and league discipline seems possible.
“I should have walked off in that situation,” Green said. “It’s never going to happen again. I regret my actions. Whatever my punishments are I accept them because I put myself in that situation. … I’ve got to control my emotions better. I’ve got to handle my stuff better. I can’t put myself in a situation like that, hurt my team and not be able to play.”
Ramsey was not in the locker room after the game.
Blake Bortles threw for 259 yards and a touchdown for the Jaguars (5-3), who controlled the ball for more than 40 minutes. Jaydon Mickens returned a punt 63 yards for a score in the fourth quarter.
The Bengals (3-5) were limited to 148 yards of offense, a season low.
“When we’re playing like this, what can you really do with us?” said Jacksonville cornerback Aaron Colvin, whose team has allowed an average of 10.8 points over the last four games, winning three of them.
