Jacksonville Jaguars first-round draft pick Jalen Ramsey has suffered a knee injury, the team announced.

The team has characterized the injury as a small meniscus tear but will get a second opinion.

The team issued the following statement:

“Jalen Ramsey sustained a small tear to the meniscus in his right knee during phase two on-field workouts. Ramsey is obtaining a second opinion next week. More information will be available when head team physician Dr. Kevin Kaplan and the Jaguars athletic training staff determine the appropriate medical care.”

Ramsey could miss 4-6 weeks or 4-6 months depending on the treatment option that the team chooses, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

Last year's Dante Fowler, the 2015 Jaguars' first-round pick, tore his ACL in a 11-on-11 drill in training camp and missed his rookie season.

The Jaguars selected Ramsey with the No. 5 overall pick in the NFL draft.
