Jenkins signed a contract with the Raiders on Monday, Scott Bair of CSN California reports. Jenkins had just 29 tackles and one pass defensed with the Dolphins in 2016 while also missing seven games due to a knee injury. When healthy, he's a starting caliber linebacker, and he's expected to compete with Tyrell Adams for the Raiders starting weakside linebacker position in 2017.
Jenkins is expected to visit the Raiders this week, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports. A 2013 fourth-round selection, Jenkins started 34 of his 53 regular season games in four years with the Dolphins, highlighted by a 110-tackle, 3.5-sack campaign in 2014. Injuries limited him to nine appearances (seven starts) and 29 tackles last season, but he could still have the inside track to a starting job if he were to land with an Oakland team that has a clear need at both middle and weakside linebacker. Jenkins should be healthy this offseason, as he returned for Miami's lone playoff game after making just one appearance in December.
Jenkins (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers. Jenkins will return to game action in the Dolphins' wild-card matchup after missing back-to-back tilts due to a knee issue. He's slated to start at outside linebacker per usual.
Jenkins (knee) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Steelers. Jenkins missed the past two games with an injured knee but returned to practice this week. Look for his status to be confirmed prior to kickoff.
Jenkins (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Jenkins has missed three of the past four games due to the injury. The Dolphins have been beat up on defense and although Jenkins is far from a world beater he will help the Dolphins to control LeVeon Bell and the Steelers run game Sunday. Jenkins should once again start at weakside linebacker for Miami.
