Dolphins' John Jenkins: Signs with Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins signed Jenkins to a one-year deal Thursday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

In Jenkins' 11 contests during the 2020 campaign, he posted 21 tackles (14 solo) and one pass breakup with the Bears. Previous to his time in Chicago, the veteran nose tackle played 16 games with Miami in 2019. Jenkins will likely boost depth on the team's defensive line this coming coming season.

Bears' John Jenkins: Posts 21 stops in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins recorded 21 tackles over 11 games for the Bears.

In his age-30 season, Jenkins played 254 snaps in a rotational role and averaged 1.9 tackles over 11 games. He's an unrestricted free agent, and he'll likely continue to be a rotational player at defensive tackle with minimal fantasy value.

Bears' John Jenkins: No restrictions Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) was a full participant during the Bears' practice session Thursday.

Jenkins was unavailable for Chicago's most recent game, a Monday night showdown against the Vikings, handing him a second consecutive inactive designation heading into the Bears' Week 11 bye. Benefitted by a 13-day span between games, Jenkins has a strong chance of playing Sunday against the Packers after practicing without restrictions on Thanksgiving.

Bears' John Jenkins: Can't go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game versus the Vikings.

Jenkins will miss a second straight game, and he'll look to heal up over the Week 11 bye. Anthony Rush, whom the Bears signed earlier in the week, should see immediate work behind starting nose tackle Bilal Nichols.

Bears' John Jenkins: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against the Titans, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Jenkins was unable to practice all week, so this decision isn't too surprising. He will now set his sights on a potential return Week 10 against the Vikings.

Bears' John Jenkins: Injured late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins exited Sunday's game against the Saints in the fourth quarter due to an apparent foot or ankle injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. His return was later ruled out, per Biggs.

Jenkins had four solo tackles before being forced out Sunday. If he's unable to retake the field versus New Orleans, it will be a blow to Chicago's depth along the interior defensive line.

Bears' John Jenkins: Activated for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (thumb) is active heading into Sunday's matchup against the Panthers, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

The 31-year-old garnered 49 combined defensive snaps Weeks 1 and 2, but he served an IR stint between Weeks 3 and 5 because of a thumb injury. He started five times last year for Miami but has so far served as a depth option during his second tour with the Bears. Jenkins will be available for snaps behind starting nose tackle Bilal Nichols, as Chicago looks to contain Carolina's 14th-ranked rush attack.

Bears' John Jenkins: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (thumb) has been activated from IR and is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Panthers, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Jenkins returned to practice Wednesday and stayed on the field all week, so he's on track to play if needed. The veteran defensive tackle handled a decent workload behind Bilal Nichols through the first two weeks and recorded two tackles.

Bears' John Jenkins: Eligible to begin practicing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (thumb) has been designated to return from injured reserve, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

After starting five times for the Dolphins during 2019, Jenkins was filling a considerable role in the early stages of his return to Chicago. Jenkins had been a member of the Bears during 2017, but he only exceeded 20 defensive snaps three times over eight appearances that season. Prior to suffering a ligament tear in his thumb during the Bears' Week 2 win over the Giants, Jenkins had fielded an average of 24.5 snaps per game on the defensive side.

Bears' John Jenkins: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears placed Jenkins (thumb) on injured reserve Thursday, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Jenkins will need to spend at least three game on IR after having suffered a ligament tear in his thumb during Sunday's win over the Giants. His next chance to suit up will come Week 6 at Carolina.

Bears' John Jenkins: Longer absence ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (thumb) will miss several games and is a candidate to be placed on IR, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jenkins apparently suffered a ligament tear in his thumb Week 2 against the Giants but continued to play through it. Not addressing the issue may prove costly here if an IR stint is in play. In the meantime, the Bears will add defensive line depth by signing defensive tackle Daniel McCullers off the Pittsburgh practice squad.

Bears' John Jenkins: Cleared for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (illness) was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

Jenkins has been a journeyman during his NFL tenure, as he's been rostered on five teams in as many years. His quick return off the COVID list certainly big for him, as he's currently expected to start at nose tackle due to Eddie Goldman's decision to opt out for the year.

Bears' John Jenkins: Heading to COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears placed Jenkins (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Over the past five years, Jenkins has been rostered by five organizations, totaling 55 tackles and one sack in 40 games. Prior to his diagnosis or recent contact with a COVID-positive person, he was slated to start at nose tackle for Eddie Goldman, who had opted out of the season. Fortunately for Jenkins, he has plenty of time to get healthy for the regular season.

Bears' John Jenkins: Returns to Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Tuesday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Jenkins put together a solid 2019 campaign, playing all 16 games, including five starts, with the Dolphins. The veteran defensive tackle previously played with the Bears in 2017 but largely went unnoticed, posting eight tackles in eight games with the franchise.

Dolphins' John Jenkins: Racks up 34 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins notched 34 tackles (20 solo), one sack and one defended pass across 16 regular-season games in 2019.

Jenkins managed to play a full 16-game slate for the first time since 2013. The 30-year-old defensive end is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, and his 2019 campaign may serve to help buoy his value.

Dolphins' John Jenkins: Posts season-high seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins racked up seven tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 41-24 loss to the Browns.

Jenkins' previous season high was just four tackles, while he also logged a season-high 55 defensive snaps in Week 12 against the Browns.

Dolphins' John Jenkins: First sack since 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins made a sack in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

Miami is Jenkins' fifth team in his seven-year career. He's making a positive impact in limited time, as he played just 46 percent of the team's defensive snaps in Week 2. The Dolphins are expected to be on defense a lot this season, however, so Jenkins may still finish with a decent stat line.

Giants' John Jenkins: Back with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins re-signed an undisclosed contract with the Giants on Tuesday.

Jenkins joined the Giants early in the 2018 season after he was waived by the Bears and was able to play seven games, logging just one quarterback hit. He will likely resume his role of working as a depth defensive lineman in 2019.

Giants' John Jenkins: Heading to Big Apple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

Jenkins was released by the Bears this past weekend as they cut their roster down to 53. The defensive tackle has bounced around the league a bit, playing in 59 games with 23 starts for the Saints (2013-16), Seattle Seahawks (2016) and Bears (2017), recording 121 tackles (67 solo), six tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, two pass breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

Bears' John Jenkins: Agrees to contract with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Bears, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Jenkins split last season between New Orleans and Seattle, recording 13 tackles in nine games. He only has 62 tackles and 1.5 sacks in his four-year career, but at 350-plus pounds, he could be of use to Chicago's run defense in a depth role.
