Bears DE Jarvis Jenkins has career day in Week 3 loss
Defensive end Jarvis Jenkins had a huge game for the Bears in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Seahawks, finishing with a career-high 10 tackles and two sacks. Jenkins played 56 of 57 total snaps and submitted arguably the best performance of his career. As a 3-4 defensive end, Jenkins hadn't shown much pass-rushing ability in the past, as he only collected two sacks during his previous 44 games with the Redskins. However, he showed plenty of explosiveness from the interior line Sunday, nearly reeling in a third sack on the afternoon before Russell Wilson evaded the rush. Given his career track record, Jenkins probably can't be counted on to build on this performance, but it at least solidified him into a starting role with Jeremiah Ratliff's pending return from a suspension Week 4.

Jarvis Jenkins expected to make first appearance
Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins missed the first for games of the season while serving a suspension, but told ESPN.com he expects to make his season debut Sunday against the Cowboys in Week 6. "I think I'll go play, I don't know how much," Jenkins said. "Coach told me he wanted to ease me into it. He didn't want to just throw me in there. I had four weeks off so he'll ease into it and see how it goes the first couple quarters and that will determine my play the rest of the game." Jenkins is not going to start the game, but is expected to come off the bench behind Kedric Golston.

Mike Shanahan delivers message to suspended players
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he's already spoken with defensive end Jarvis Jenkins and linebacker Rob Jackson, who will both serve four-game suspensions at the outset of the season for violations of the NFL's policy on banned performance-enhancing substances. "I've already talked to them about the message," Shanahan said Tuesday, per The Washington Post. "I think the message is very obvious. After Saturday evening, we cannot talk to them until they come back. We want them to stay in great shape and when they do come back, hopefully they help our football team win. And the only way they are going to do that is if they do the little things over the next four weeks."
