  • Dolphins' John Jenkins: Enters COVID protocols

    Jenkins (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday after testing positive for the Virus, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Jenkins' potential absence Sunday against the Titans would be a blow to the Dolphins' defensive line depth. However, if he is vaccinated, he could clear protocols by producing two negative tests more than 24 hours apart.

  • Dolphins' John Jenkins: Slated for increased role

    Jenkins is expected to have an increased role in the coming weeks after Raekwon Davis (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.

    Jenkins filled in for Davis for most of Sunday's season opener, and he was on the field for 60 percent of the team's defensive snaps. He racked up four solo tackles in the win over the Patriots and will attempt to build on his production since Davis will miss at least three weeks.

  • Dolphins' John Jenkins: Signs with Miami

    The Dolphins signed Jenkins to a one-year deal Thursday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    In Jenkins' 11 contests during the 2020 campaign, he posted 21 tackles (14 solo) and one pass breakup with the Bears. Previous to his time in Chicago, the veteran nose tackle played 16 games with Miami in 2019. Jenkins will likely boost depth on the team's defensive line this coming coming season.

  • Bears' John Jenkins: Posts 21 stops in 2020

    Jenkins recorded 21 tackles over 11 games for the Bears.

    In his age-30 season, Jenkins played 254 snaps in a rotational role and averaged 1.9 tackles over 11 games. He's an unrestricted free agent, and he'll likely continue to be a rotational player at defensive tackle with minimal fantasy value.

  • Bears' John Jenkins: No restrictions Thursday

    Jenkins (ankle) was a full participant during the Bears' practice session Thursday.

    Jenkins was unavailable for Chicago's most recent game, a Monday night showdown against the Vikings, handing him a second consecutive inactive designation heading into the Bears' Week 11 bye. Benefitted by a 13-day span between games, Jenkins has a strong chance of playing Sunday against the Packers after practicing without restrictions on Thanksgiving.

  • Bears' John Jenkins: Can't go Monday

    Jenkins (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Vikings.

    Jenkins will miss a second straight game, and he'll look to heal up over the Week 11 bye. Anthony Rush, whom the Bears signed earlier in the week, should see immediate work behind starting nose tackle Bilal Nichols.

  • Bears' John Jenkins: Ruled out

    Jenkins (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against the Titans, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Jenkins was unable to practice all week, so this decision isn't too surprising. He will now set his sights on a potential return Week 10 against the Vikings.

  • Bears' John Jenkins: Injured late

    Jenkins exited Sunday's game against the Saints in the fourth quarter due to an apparent foot or ankle injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. His return was later ruled out, per Biggs.

    Jenkins had four solo tackles before being forced out Sunday. If he's unable to retake the field versus New Orleans, it will be a blow to Chicago's depth along the interior defensive line.

  • Bears' John Jenkins: Activated for Week 6

    Jenkins (thumb) is active heading into Sunday's matchup against the Panthers, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    The 31-year-old garnered 49 combined defensive snaps Weeks 1 and 2, but he served an IR stint between Weeks 3 and 5 because of a thumb injury. He started five times last year for Miami but has so far served as a depth option during his second tour with the Bears. Jenkins will be available for snaps behind starting nose tackle Bilal Nichols, as Chicago looks to contain Carolina's 14th-ranked rush attack.

  • Bears' John Jenkins: Activated from IR

    Jenkins (thumb) has been activated from IR and is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Panthers, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

    Jenkins returned to practice Wednesday and stayed on the field all week, so he's on track to play if needed. The veteran defensive tackle handled a decent workload behind Bilal Nichols through the first two weeks and recorded two tackles.

  • Bears' John Jenkins: Eligible to begin practicing again

    Jenkins (thumb) has been designated to return from injured reserve, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    After starting five times for the Dolphins during 2019, Jenkins was filling a considerable role in the early stages of his return to Chicago. Jenkins had been a member of the Bears during 2017, but he only exceeded 20 defensive snaps three times over eight appearances that season. Prior to suffering a ligament tear in his thumb during the Bears' Week 2 win over the Giants, Jenkins had fielded an average of 24.5 snaps per game on the defensive side.
