  • Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Interception in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jenkins recorded five tackles (four solo), one pass defensed and an interception in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. Jenkins had a crucial interception late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest that set up the Giants for a go-ahead score. He now has 31 tackles (27 solo), seven passes defensed and two interceptions on the year. He'll have a quick turnaround this week as he faces off against Kirk Cousins and the Redskins' passing attack Thanksgiving night.

  • The Giants reinstated Jenkins from his indefinite suspension Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports. As was the case with fellow cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie earlier this season, Jenkins' suspension lasted all of one game, with the Giants' top cover man sitting out the blowout loss to the Rams on Sunday. It's expected that Jenkins will step back into a starting role Week 10 against the 49ers, likely resulting in reduced responsibilities for Ross Cockrell, who logged a season-high 64 defensive snaps in the game against Los Angeles.

  • Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Suspended indefinitely
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jenkins was suspended indefinitely Tuesday for a violation of team rules, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports. The suspension will take effect immediately, so the cornerback will not play in this Sunday's game against the Rams. According to the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team-sanctioned indefinite suspension cannot be more than four games, so the latest Jenkins could return would be Week 13's matchup with the Raiders. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who served a one-game suspension earlier this season, is in line to start at cornerback in Jenkins' absence.

  • Jenkins recorded his first interception of the season in Sunday night's win over the Broncos. Jenkins took the pick 43-yards to the house. The play came just before halftime to give the Giants a two touchdown advantage. The 28-year-old cornerback was on the field for 78 defensive snaps (96.0 percent).

  • Jenkins (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Jenkins appearance on this week's injury report is likely just precautionary, as he looks to have put the ankle injury completely behind him. Expect the star corner to be a full go for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, where he'll likely lineup across Keenan Allen for majority of the contest.
