Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey was ejected Sunday against the Bengals for his role in an altercation with A.J. Green, but he had at least one fan within his organization.

Jaguars executive vice president Tom Coughlin praised Ramsey for physical play and a calm head even after Green brought him to the ground and started punching him.

"I want to voice my support for Jalen Ramsey following the incident in our game on Sunday," Coughlin said in a statement. "Our players are instructed to not retaliate or get involved or do anything that would result in eviction because that would hurt the team. Team comes first, and Jalen was trying to not hurt his team. While he did push his opponent — something that happened with other players during the game — he did not retaliate, he threw no punches, and he did not fight back.
