Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Jenkins will return to the lineup Sunday against the Panthers after missing the team's last two games. The veteran cornerback was strong in coverage over the first three weeks, allowing a 58.0 passer rating and no touchdowns when targeted. He'll immediately return to a starting role.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Can't go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Chargers.

Jenkins will miss a second straight game after sitting out practice all week, but he'll aim to utilize the Week 6 bye to come back healthy against the Panthers in Week 7. Marshon Lattimore (hamstring) is also questionable, so the Saints' secondary is in rough shape heading into Monday. Expect Patrick Robinson to handle a full workload regardless of Lattimore's game-time status.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Not able to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Detroit, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

With both Jenkins and Marshon Lattimore (hamstring) sidelined, New Orleans will turn to Justin Hardee and Patrick Robinson at the cornerback position. Jenkins will hope to heal up in time for the team's Week 5 game against the Chargers.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Dealing with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) was limited in Thursday's practice, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Jenkins didn't practice due to an illness Wednesday, but it now appears as though he's managing a shoulder injury. If the starting cornerback is able to upgrade to full practice activity Friday, he'll dissolve any worries about his Week 4 availability.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Listed as DNP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Scores in Week 1 victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins totaled nine tackles (eight solo), one pass defended and a 36-yard interception returned for a touchdown in Sunday's 34-23 win over the Saints.

With another solid showing, Jenkins is showing why the Saints picked him up last season and subsequently extended his contract through 2022. The veteran corner displayed his nose for the end zone once again, recording his eighth career pick-six, moving him into a tie for eighth all time in NFL history for interceptions returned for touchdowns. He'll face Las Vegas' young receiving corps in Week 2.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: On books through 2022
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins' restructured contact includes a two-year, $16.75 million extension that will keep him in New Orleans through 2022, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jenkins initially carried a $11.25 million cap hit for 2020, but the Saints were able to reduce that number with the extension and open up more cap space in the process. As a result, the remainder of his contract is now functionally a three-year, $27 million deal that includes $10.2 million guaranteed. Since all the guaranteed money is due in 2020, the Saints can cut Jenkins with no financial repercussions in 2021 or 2022 if his performance dips.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Re-negotiates contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins and the Saints agreed on a re-structured contract Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The specifics surrounding the new deal remain unclear, but with Jenkins set to count $11.25 million against the cap, the team found a way to create cap space. After the 31-year-old cornerback joined the Saints in Week 16, he started two of three games (including playoffs) and appears in line for a similar role again in 2020.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Solid play in two appearances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins recorded seven tackles (five solo) and an interception in just two appearances for New Orleans in 2019.

Jenkins was snagged off waivers by the Saints after the Giants cut him for using a slur on Twitter, and he appeared in two regular-season contests for New Orleans. He was solid in those contests, and he played an important role in the Saints' first-round playoff loss, recording eight tackles (three solo) and a forced fumble. He's under contract through 2021, though his $10.15M salary for 2020 is non-guaranteed, and the Saints could cleanly cut ties with him in the offseason. He has 23 career interceptions in eight NFL seasons (including five in 2019), and his proven track record may entice the organization to keep him around for the final year of his deal.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Records first pick with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins produced five tackles (all solo) and an interception in the Saints' 42-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Jenkins snagged his first interception as a member of the Saints, picking off Kyle Allen in the end zone just inside the two-minute mark of the contest. He should provide some solid depth and veteran leadership in New Orleans, especially as the team heads into the postseason.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Clear of injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

The 31-year-old wasn't practicing due to the ankle injury before being waived by the Giants last week, but he's now apparently recovered from the injury. Jenkins provides quality depth at cornerback for New Orleans behind starters Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple.

Saints' Janoris Jenkins: Claimed by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) was claimed off waivers by the Saints, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Jenkins will not be eligible to play in the Saints' Monday night matchup with the Colts, but he will join the team for the rest of the season after being waived by the Giants last week. Jenkins figures to slot in somewhere behind starting cornerbacks Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple and see action in nickel and dime packages.

Janoris Jenkins: Done in New York
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Bothered by ankle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins won't practice Wednesday as he receives treatment on his ankle, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports.

Jenkins cleared concussion protocol to suit up in this past Monday's loss to the Eagles, playing 99 percent of defensive snaps and recording six tackles. There's no indication that the 31-year-old is in danger of missing Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins, and his practice status for the rest of the week should shed more light on the severity.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins cleared the league's five-step concussion protocol Friday.

Jenkins is set to draw his usual start at cornerback across from Deandre Baker against the Bears on Sunday. With Sterling Shepard and Nate Solder also having managed to clear the league's protocol for head injuries, the Giants will benefit from the return of multiple starters Week 12.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Jenkins remains in the league's concussion protocol, per Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post, but he's expected to receive full clearance from an independent neurologist prior to Sunday's tilt against the Bears. If Jenkins is indeed able to retake the field Week 12, he'll draw his usual start at cornerback.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Spotted at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (concussion) participated in Monday's practice, Jordan Raanan of 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: May have suffered concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Pat Shurmur believes Jenkins suffered a concussion during Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Jets, Art Stapleton of reports.

Shurmur wasn't definitive in his diagnosis, but it sounds like Jenkins will be placed in concussion protocol. The Giants have a bye in Week 11, so he has two weeks two recover before a matchup against the Bears. Jenkins recorded four solo tackles and a pass breakup in this contest.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Interception in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins recorded three tackles (all solo), an interception and a pass defensed across 63 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Jenkins snagged his fourth interception of the season, which matches a season high dating back to his rookie season in 2012. There have been trade rumors floating around that include Jenkins' name, but for now, the veteran will shift his focus to Monday's showdown with the Cowboys.
