  • Titans' Janoris Jenkins: DNP on Wednesday

    Jenkins (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. The cornerback was unavailable for the Titans' practice Wednesday as he deals with his nagging ankle injury. Jenkins did play the Titans' last three games of the season after missing a couple weeks with the ankle issue, which makes his absence Wednesday a little less concerning. His status at practice Thursday will provide a clearer indication of his availability for Saturday's divisional-round matchup with the Bengals.

  • Janoris Jenkins: Hits free agency

    The Saints are releasing Jenkins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. One could argue that Jenkins is more valuable than the $7 million in cap space this move frees up, but the Saints are in a tough position with the salary cap. They've figured out keeping their top players around, but the second and third-tier veterans like Jenkins and Emmanuel Sanders will need to find new homes. Known for his playmaking more so than his reliable coverage, the 32-year-old Jenkins nonetheless remains viable as a starting outside cornerback, coming off a 2020 campaign with 12 pass defenses and three interceptions in 13 games. He has eight pick-sixes in his career, tied for eighth most all-time.

Jenkins recorded his most tackles in three seasons and scored the eighth interception return touchdown of his career, moving him into eighth place in NFL history in that category. The veteran continues to be productive late into his career, and he'll look to keep up the solid play as he heads into his 10th season in 2021 with the Saints.

  • Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Picks up knee injury

    Jenkins was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Broncos with a knee injury, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. There's no indication about the severity of Jenkins' injury. Marshon Lattimore and Patrick Robinson are the only healthy cornerbacks left on the roster. C.J. Gardner-Johnson, typically a safety, may handle some reps at corner if Jenkins can't return.

  • Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Second interception of season

    Jenkins totaled five tackles (four solo) and an interception in the Saints' 24-9 win over the Falcons on Sunday. Jenkins brought in his second interception of the season and first since Week 1. He'll look to replicate the performance against a turnover-prone Denver squad in Week 12.

  • Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Not able to practice Thursday

    Jenkins (shoulder) was a non-participant during the Saints' practice session Thursday. The 31-year-old cornerback missed his first game action of the season in Week 4, as the Saints surrendered 206 passing yards and three touchdowns to Detroit's Matthew Stafford in a 35-29 win. Jenkins has been very sturdy in coverage this season when active, allowing a 57.9 percent completion rate with zero touchdowns surrendered. If he misses a second consecutive start Monday night against the Chargers, Patrick Robinson would be entrusted with a more vital role in the secondary.

  • Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Listed as DNP

    Jenkins (illness) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. This doesn't appear to be related to COVID-19, but Jenkins is away from the team nonetheless. As an every-snap player, Jenkins' availability is crucial for the team's game against the Lions on Sunday, but returning to practice in any capacity would signal he should be ready for Week 4.

  • Janoris Jenkins: Done in New York

    The Giants waived/injured Jenkins (ankle) on Friday, Michael Elsen of the team's official site reports. Jenkins is nursing an ankle injury sustained during Monday's loss to the Eagles, the severity of which prevented him from practicing in any capacity this week. The Giants' decision to part ways with Jenkins stems from his inappropriate Twitter exchange with a fan earlier this week, which included the use of a slur. Coach Pat Shurmur said, "Obviously, what happened this week, and the refusal to acknowledge the inappropriate and offensive language, was the determining factor." Jenkins started 13 contests in New York this season, notching 54 tackles (45 solo), 14 defended passes and four interceptions.

  • Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Spotted at practice

    Jenkins (concussion) participated in Monday's practice, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. The bye week allowed Jenkins to progress through concussion protocol, although it's unsettled whether he's limited or at full speed. We may not know his true status until the Giants release their first injury report Wednesday, but Jenkins appears to have a good shot at playing Sunday against the Bears.

  • Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Participating in spring workouts

    Jenkins (ankle) has shown consistent ability to mirror his receivers during spring workouts, John Schmeelk of the Giants' official site reports. Jenkins is already regarded as one of the better cornerbacks in the league, so his ability to dominate in offseason practices isn't surprising. However, it's significant in the fact that Jenkins is bouncing back from ankle surgery, as his mere participation in drills suggests the 2016 All-Pro has since received clearance from the Giants' medical staff. As long as he remains healthy through the end of the summer, Jenkins is poised to enter the 2018 campaign as the team's undisputed top cover man. In the nine games he played during the 2017 season, Jenkins racked up 31 tackles, nine pass breakups, three interceptions and one forced fumble.

  • Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Says he's healthy again

    Jenkins (ankle) recently tweeted that he is healthy. Jenkins had an estimated three-month recovery timetable when he underwent ankle surgery in late November. Now more than four months removed from the procedure, he should be available in some capacity for the Giants' offseason program. Jenkins had some rough moments while playing through nagging ankle and hand injuries last season, but he did pick off three passes -- returning two for touchdowns -- in nine games. The 29-year-old is locked in as the Giants' top cornerback, with 2016 first-round pick Eli Apple a tentative favorite for the other starting gig. The team released Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on March 11.

  • Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Could need season-ending surgery

    Jenkins (ankle) will meet with doctors Monday and could require season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports. Jenkins was spotted in a walking boot following the Giants' loss to the Redskins on Thursday after aggravating the ankle injury that has been bothering him for the better part of two months. Though he's only missed two games this season -- one of which was due to a team-imposed suspension -- Jenkins' play has been impacted by the injury, which compromises his ability to cut and change direction. Even if Jenkins opts to forgo surgery and play the Giants' final five games of the season, he'll likely require surgery for the ankle at some point during the offseason.

  • Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Could miss some time

    Jenkins (ankle) could miss a few games, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Jenkins injured his ankle on his league leading second pick-six in Thursday's Thanksgiving loss to the Redskins. He was subsequently seen in a walking boot following the game, and described the injury as "painful" Friday. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would likely start at cornerback in his place if he does indeed miss some time.

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.

  • Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Reinstated from suspension

    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.
