Jenkins was carted off the field with a knee injury during Sunday's preseason matchup with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Jenkins reportedly went down with a non-contact injury to his knee, which is extremely concerning for the Cardinals. While the severity of the injury remains unclear, we should hear more once the team's medical staff is able to undergo additional testing.
Jenkins (hand) returned to practice on Sunday, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 reports.
Jenkins had surgery for a broken hand at the start of August. He was expected to miss anywhere from 2-to-3 weeks, so his return Sunday appears to be on the early side of that original projection. Jenkins will have to battle for a role as a depth option at cornerback for the upcoming season.
Jenkins broke his hand during Friday's practice session, which came just shortly after he signed with the team in mid-July. Now that he'll be sidelined for a couple weeks, Asa Jackson and Shaun Prater could see more snaps at cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson, especially since Justin Bethel (foot) remains on the PUP list.
Jenkins is out indefinitely after he suffered a broken bone in his hand during Friday's practice.
Jenkins was signed by the Cardinals after spending the previous two seasons with Tampa Bay. He figured to have a chance at starting opposite Patrick Peterson with Justin Bethel's health in question entering the season. There is currently no timetable for his return.
