Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Makes 70 tackles in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins recorded 70 tackles, fifteen passes defended, two interceptions and one forced fumble across 16 games with the Giants in 2018.

Jenkins played a full 16 game season for the first time since 2013. The 30-year-old managed to bounce back well from a disappointing 2017 campaign, falling just three tackles short of matching his career-best mark. Jenkins is signed with the G-Men through 2020.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins was a full participant in Friday's practice.

Jenkins left practice due to a family matter earlier this week, but his return to practice Friday seems to indicate that the cornerback's Week 2 status is not in jeopardy. Expect Jenkins to suit up against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Leaves practice due to family matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins exited Thursday's practice due to what the Giants labeled as a family situation, Matt Lombardo of reports.

The Giants haven't provided any additional details on the matter, so it's uncertain if the cornerback will rejoin the team for practice Friday or travel to Texas ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. After a disappointing 2017 campaign that ended in late November when he required ankle surgery, Jenkins opened the current season on a promising note. He finished the Giants' Week 1 loss to the Jaguars with seven tackles, an interception and an additional pass breakup.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Solid outing in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins recorded seven tackles (five solo), two passes defensed and an interception across 62 defensive snaps in Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Jaguars.

Jenkins was a bit of a letdown in 2017, in large part due to an ankle injury which cost him six games. However, Jenkins looked like the 2016 version of himself Sunday, saving a touchdown and nearly snagging two interceptions on the day.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Participating in spring workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) has shown consistent ability to mirror his receivers during spring workouts, John Schmeelk of the Giants' official site reports.

Jenkins is already regarded as one of the better cornerbacks in the league, so his ability to dominate in offseason practices isn't surprising. However, it's significant in the fact that Jenkins is bouncing back from ankle surgery, as his mere participation in drills suggests the 2016 All-Pro has since received clearance from the Giants' medical staff. As long as he remains healthy through the end of the summer, Jenkins is poised to enter the 2018 campaign as the team's undisputed top cover man. In the nine games he played during the 2017 season, Jenkins racked up 31 tackles, nine pass breakups, three interceptions and one forced fumble.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Says he's healthy again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) recently tweeted that he is healthy.

Jenkins had an estimated three-month recovery timetable when he underwent ankle surgery in late November. Now more than four months removed from the procedure, he should be available in some capacity for the Giants' offseason program. Jenkins had some rough moments while playing through nagging ankle and hand injuries last season, but he did pick off three passes -- returning two for touchdowns -- in nine games. The 29-year-old is locked in as the Giants' top cornerback, with 2016 first-round pick Eli Apple a tentative favorite for the other starting gig. The team released Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on March 11.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Faces three-month recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins, who was placed on injured reserve after undergoing ankle surgery earlier Wednesday in Charlotte, will face a three-month recovery timetable, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

That puts Jenkins on track to enter the Giants' offseason program at full strength heading into the third year of his five-year, $62.5 million pact with New York. Though his solid coverage skills in 2016 keyed the Giants' defensive turnaround, Jenkins regressed in his second season with the team while playing through the ankle injury the past two months and missing one game due to a team-imposed suspension. He'll wrap up the campaign with 31 tackles, nine pass breakups, three interceptions, a forced fumble and two touchdowns across nine contests.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Headed to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, ending his season, Jordan Raanan of reports. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Jenkins will also undergo surgery Wednesday on the ankle, which has been bothering him for about two months.

Jenkins becomes the 18th Giants player to land on IR and the second cornerback in three days after Donte Deayon (forearm) was shut down for the season Monday. After turning in an impressive inaugural campaign with the Giants in 2016, Jenkins' coverage suffered while he battled the injury for most of the current season, though he still managed three interceptions and nine pass breakups in nine games. His absence the rest of the way should translate to more snaps for the likes of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Ross Cockrell and Eli Apple.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Could need season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) will meet with doctors Monday and could require season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of reports.

Jenkins was spotted in a walking boot following the Giants' loss to the Redskins on Thursday after aggravating the ankle injury that has been bothering him for the better part of two months. Though he's only missed two games this season -- one of which was due to a team-imposed suspension -- Jenkins' play has been impacted by the injury, which compromises his ability to cut and change direction. Even if Jenkins opts to forgo surgery and play the Giants' final five games of the season, he'll likely require surgery for the ankle at some point during the offseason.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Could miss some time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) could miss a few games, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Jenkins injured his ankle on his league leading second pick-six in Thursday's Thanksgiving loss to the Redskins. He was subsequently seen in a walking boot following the game, and described the injury as "painful" Friday. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would likely start at cornerback in his place if he does indeed miss some time.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: In walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins was seen in a walking boot following the Giants' 20-10 Thanksgiving loss to the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Jenkins injured his foot on an interception he returned for a touchdown during the third quarter. He is the first player in the league to log two pick-sixes this season. The 29-year-old has now recorded interceptions in two consecutive games, pushing his season total to three. However, his status for the Week 13 game against the Raiders remains uncertain until the team provides more clarity on his injury.

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

Jenkins recorded five tackles (four solo), one pass defensed and an interception in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

Jenkins had a crucial interception late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest that set up the Giants for a go-ahead score. He now has 31 tackles (27 solo), seven passes defensed and two interceptions on the year. He'll have a quick turnaround this week as he faces off against Kirk Cousins and the Redskins' passing attack Thanksgiving night.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Reinstated from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants reinstated Jenkins from his indefinite suspension Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

As was the case with fellow cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie earlier this season, Jenkins' suspension lasted all of one game, with the Giants' top cover man sitting out the blowout loss to the Rams on Sunday. It's expected that Jenkins will step back into a starting role Week 10 against the 49ers, likely resulting in reduced responsibilities for Ross Cockrell, who logged a season-high 64 defensive snaps in the game against Los Angeles.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Expected back in Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (suspension) is expected to be back for Week 10's game against the 49ers, Jordan Raanan of reports.

It seems that Jenkins' suspension will be just one game, as he still is a critical part of the Giants' secondary. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will still get the start Sunday against the Rams, but he'll likely be slotted back to the No. 3 corner role once Jenkins returns.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Suspended indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins was suspended indefinitely Tuesday for a violation of team rules, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

The suspension will take effect immediately, so the cornerback will not play in this Sunday's game against the Rams. According to the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team-sanctioned indefinite suspension cannot be more than four games, so the latest Jenkins could return would be Week 13's matchup with the Raiders. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who served a one-game suspension earlier this season, is in line to start at cornerback in Jenkins' absence.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Hauls in first pick of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins recorded his first interception of the season in Sunday night's win over the Broncos.

Jenkins took the pick 43-yards to the house. The play came just before halftime to give the Giants a two touchdown advantage. The 28-year-old cornerback was on the field for 78 defensive snaps (96.0 percent).

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Full practice participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Jenkins appearance on this week's injury report is likely just precautionary, as he looks to have put the ankle injury completely behind him. Expect the star corner to be a full go for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, where he'll likely lineup across Keenan Allen for majority of the contest.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Will play Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Jenkins was sidelined at practice during the week, save for some limited participation on Friday. He's likely less than 100 percent but is healthy enough to play. Ross Cockrell may see some extra reps if Jenkins is at all limited during the game.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Game-time call Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) will be a game-time decision Sunday for the Giants' Week 3 tilt with the Eagles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Giants listed Jenkins as questionable Friday after he turned in a limited practice, which followed two straight days on the sideline to begin the week. It seems apparent that he's not 100 percent healthy heading into the weekend, but if his mobility and ability to change direction isn't too compromised when he tests things out on the field Sunday, Jenkins likely will receive clearance to play.

Giants' Janoris Jenkins: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle/hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

It's not clear if Jenkins was able to get in any work Friday after sitting out practice the previous two days, but regardless, he will still have a chance to get back on the field this week after sitting out Monday's loss to the Lions due to his injuries.
