  • Bears' Teven Jenkins: Moves back to active roster

    Jenkins (back) was activated from IR on Saturday.

    Jenkins underwent back surgery in August. He was selected in the second round of the 2021 Draft with expectations that he would earn a starting a job on the offensive line.

    Jenkins underwent back surgery a couple weeks ago and is unavailable for the start of the season, so it's not surprising to see him move to injured reserve. The rookie second-round pick will be eligible to be activated for Week 4, though he'll likely face a longer absence while recovering from the procedure.

  • Bears' Teven Jenkins: Needs back surgery

    Jenkins is scheduled to undergo back surgery Wednesday, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    The 39th overall pick in this year's draft initially was projected to start at left tackle, with the Bears even releasing incumbent starter Charles Leno a few days after they added Jenkins. Those plans will now change drastically, as head coach Matt Nagy admitted Wednesday that he hopes to get Jenkins back at some point this season, while Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Bears are eyeing a November return. The team signed a potential replacement earlier this week, bringing in 39-year-old Jason Peters to compete with converted right tackle Elijah Wilkinson.
