  • Raiders' Jordan Jenkins: Placed on IR

    Jenkins was placed on injured reserve with a torn ACL on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports. Jenkins signed with the Raiders on Wednesday, but he'll be unavailable for the entire 2022 campaign after sustaining a torn ACL in the second quarter of Saturday's preseason win over the Dolphins. He also dealt with a calf injury earlier in the offseason and will now face a lengthy recovery process ahead of the 2023 season.

  • Raiders' Jordan Jenkins: Joins Las Vegas

    Jenkins signed a contract with the Raiders on Wednesday, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports. The 28-year-old was activated from the PUP list and released by the Texans earlier this week, and it didn't take long for him to latch on with a new team. Jenkins played in 11 games for Houston last season and totaled 20 tackles (nine solo) and 2.5 sacks.

  • Jordan Jenkins: Let go with injury designation

    Jenkins (calf) was waived with an injury designation by the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports. Jenkins, who'd been on the PUP list, will get a chance to latch onto a new team before his season is potentially over after reverting to Houston's IR. The 2016 third-round pick has appeared in double-digit games and registered at least 20 tackles across his first six years in the NFL and has 24.5 career sacks -- including 15 during a two-year run (2018-19) with the Jets.

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Shifted to active/PUP list

    Jenkins (ankle) was added to the active/physically unable to perform list by the Texans on Wednesday, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports. Jenkins will not be eligible to practice or play in the preseason until he is activated from this list by Houston -- a move the team can make at any point before the final roster cutdown date. If not, the veteran defensive end, who played 11 games for the Texans in 2021, will be forced to miss the first four contests of the regular season.

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Exits COVID protocol

    Jenkins was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday but was limited in practice due to a knee injury. With fellow defensive end Jonathan Greenard (foot) also exiting the COVID protocol Wednesday, Jenkins will likely work in a reserve role Sunday against the 49ers, assuming both players are able to suit up for Houston.

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Gets positive COVID-19 result

    Jenkins tested positive for the coronavirus Thursday and will be placed on the Texans' reserve/COVID-19 list, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports. Jenkins, cornerback Lonnie Johnson, safety Eric Murray and defensive tackle Roy Lopez are among the Texans who tested positive Thursday, bringing the organization's total number of players on the reserve/COVID-19 list or practice squad/COVID-19 list up to 22. After tearing the PCL of his left knee Nov. 21 against the Titans, Jenkins was activated from injured reserve last week and played 31 snaps on defense in Houston's win over Jacksonville. Even if he's vaccinated, Jenkins will face an uphill battle to gain clearance ahead of Sunday's game against the Chargers.

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Designated to return from IR

    The Texans designated Jenkins (knee) to return from injured reserve Wednesday. Jenkins tore his PCL in Week 11 and has spent the last three weeks on injured reserve.

However, if he isn't activated, then he will revert back to injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Placed on IR

    The Texans placed Jenkins (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Jenkins was expected to miss at least three weeks after tearing his PCL, so this transaction doesn't come as a surprise. Derek Rivers is the only backup defensive end behind Jonathan Greenard (foot) and Jacob Martin on the Texans' roster, so Rivers will likely be thrust into an expanded role during Jenkins' absence.

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Out at least three weeks

    Jenkins (knee) tore his posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and is expected to miss at least three weeks, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports. Jenkins isn't expected to need surgery, but a trip to injured reserve is expected. Derek Rivers is the only backup defensive end behind Jonathan Greenard and Jacob Martin on the Texans roster, so Rivers will likely be thrust into an expanded role during Jenkins' absence.

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Ruled out for remainder of game

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Registers first sack of season

    Jenkins registered four tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks during Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Dolphins. Through seven games this season, Jenkins has totaled 16 tackles and 1.5 sacks, but a large portion of that production came Sunday. The 27-year-old defensive end likely won't be a viable IDP option when the Texans return from their Week 10 bye to face the Titans.

  • Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Heads to Texans

    Jenkins (shoulder) signed a two-year deal with the Texans on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Jenkins spent the first five seasons of his professional career with the Jets, racking up a total of 24.5 sacks. He was limited to 12 games in 2020 due to a shoulder injury, though he is expected to be healthy in time for the 2021 season after undergoing surgery. He joins a number of offseason additions on the defensive side of the ball for Houston and should play a significant role among its linebacker corps.

  • Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Will need surgery

    Coach Adam Gase said Thursday that Jenkins (shoulder) will require surgery to address his injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports. Jenkins is already on IR for the final three weeks of the season, but the news that he'll need surgery could impact his stock in free agency. The 2016 third-round pick had his sack totals decrease from eight to two from 2019 to 2020, but he notched 32 solo tackles both seasons. Through 12 games in 2019, he also had one defended pass and a forced fumble.

  • Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Out for Week 14

    Jenkins (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Seattle, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Jenkins' shoulder injury will force him to miss his first game of the season, making Bryce Hager and Frankie Luvu candidates to handle increased roles. Coach Adam Gase hinted earlier this week that Jenkins had a chance to play, so it's possible that he could require only a one-game absence.

  • Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Deemed questionable against Chiefs

    Jenkins (ribs/shoulder) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports. Jenkins upgraded to limited participation for the final two practices of the week, putting him on track to play Sunday barring a setback. The 2016 third-round pick has just nine tackles and a sack through seven games, so his IDP fantasy value is negligible.

  • Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Dealing with rib injury

    Jenkins suffered a rib injury during Sunday's loss to the Bills and likely will miss practices this week, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. There doesn't appear to be major concern about Jenkins' status for the upcoming game against the Chiefs, but it'll depend on how he responds to practice this week. The 26-year-old has generated just nine tackles and a sack through seven games this season. Bryce Hager is in line for first-team reps until Jenkins can return.

  • Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Listed as questionable

    The Jets have given Jenkins (shoulder) a questionable designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Jenkins has been nursing a shoulder injury. He ended up playing through the issue in last Thursday's game against the Broncos but it is still hindering him. Thus, he is looking like a game-time decision Sunday. Frankie Luvu and Jordan Willis will be next in line to get snaps at outside linebacker in his absence if Jenkins is not given the green light.

  • Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Set to face Broncos

    Jenkins (shoulder) is active for the Jets' Thursday night game against the Broncos. The 26-year-old linebacker was held to limited participation in practice on a short week, but the Jets' training staff has evidently seen enough from Jenkins pre-game to determine him active for this matchup between 0-3 teams. Jenkins has one sack in three appearances this year after posting seven-plus sacks each of the past two seasons. Jeff Driskel absorbed five sacks last week for the Broncos against Tampa Bay, though Brett Rypien (sacked once on 10 dropbacks himself against the Buccaneers) will earn his first career start Thursday night.
