Jenkins slotted in as a reserve defensive end for the Chiefs in 2017, playing mainly when the regulars needed a breather. He should serve Kansas City in a similar role during 2018 with Allen Bailey, Chris Jones (knee) and Rakeem Nunez-Roches (ankle) all returning.
Jenkins (knee) is questionable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Titans.
Despite logging a full practice on Thursday, Jenkins remains questionable for the contest. Rakeem Nunez-Roches (ankle) is also doubtful for the contest, which could leave the Chiefs defensive line in short supply. Look for more updates on Jenkins status to come Saturday once inactives are announced.
Jenkins (elbow) was listed as a full participant at Wednesday's practice.
Jenkins exited the Week 15 win over the Chargers due to the elbow issue and never returned. His full participation Wednesday suggests that the injury is no longer a concern in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Dolphins.
Jenkins sustained an elbow injury in Saturday's 30-13 win over the Chargers and didn't return.
A rotational defensive end, Jenkins has recorded just seven tackles and a sack in nine appearances this season. The Chiefs should know more regarding the extent of Jenkins' injury within a few days, but if he's forced to miss games with the elbow issue, it wouldn't register as a major blow to the Kansas City defense.
