Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey underwent surgery to repair a core muscle injury, the team announced on Friday.

The Jaguars did not disclose how long Ramsey would be sidelined, however a typical recovery from this type of surgery is approximately six weeks. That timetable would put the 22-year-old Ramsey back for the first week of training camp.

“I want to and will be the best version of myself that I can be for the upcoming 2017 season,” Ramsey said in a statement. “I will attack this rehab, refine my body and work as hard as I ever have to come the best defensive back in the league and to make everyone, including my family, teammates and city, proud of who I am.”

Ramsey, who was the fifth overall pick of the 2016 draft, collected 65 tackles, two interceptions and one forced fumble while starting every game during his rookie season.
