Jarvis Jenkins (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Jenkins ends his season with 32 tackles and four sacks over 15 games. He'll be replaced in the starting lineup by Will Sutton.
Jarvis Jenkins recorded two tackles, including a half-sack, in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the 49ers.
Half of Jenkins' sack output and a third of his tackles on the season came in his monstrous two-sack, 10-stop performance in Week 3 against the Seahawks. While he's not posting big numbers week in and week out, the Chicago Bears seem satisfied enough with how he's performed as a 3-4 defensive end, a role that doesn't lend itself to much sack production compared to Jenkins' 4-3 counterparts.
Defensive end Jarvis Jenkins had a huge game for the Chicago Bears in Sunday's 26-0 loss to the Seattle 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 Washington 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.
