Jenkins (hamstring) returned to practice Saturday, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Jenkins had been dealing with a hamstring injury, and the Eagles chose to play it safe and sit the safety for the team's first preseason game. His return to practice signifies that Jenkins injury has at least mostly faded. Expect Jenkins to be ready for Week 1 as one of the best IDP options on the Eagles' roster.
Jenkins (hamstring) will not play in Thursday's preseason matchup with the Buccaneers.
Jenkins has been out of practice for a week now, after suffering a hamstring injury last Thursday. He'll be held out of the team's preseason opener, but isn't expected to see a lengthy absence, so a return to practice in the near future isn't out of the question. Chris Maragos is expected to take his spot in the starting lineup for the time being.
Jenkins went down with the injury last Thursday during practice and has not taken the field since. With Monday the team's last full practice session before the Thursday's preseason opener, the 28-year-old safety may be in danger of missing the contest.
Jenkins' new deal will keep him in Philadelphia through the 2020 season. After joining the Eagles in 2014, Jenkins has gone on to lead the NFL in snaps played over the past two seasons, registering 109 tackles, 10 passes defensed and three forced fumbles this past year. Those lofty numbers earned Jenkins his first Pro Bowl selection, and now a long-term deal to solidify his future.
