Jenkins (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday's game versus the Broncos.
Jenkins operated in a limited capacity throughout the practice week, and the final verdict on his status should be available 90 minutes before Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. With Jordan Willis (ankle) doubtful, if Jenkins sits out, Frankie Luvu could bump into a starting outside linebacker role.
Jenkins was listed as a limited participant on Monday's estimated injury report due to a shoulder injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
The 26-year-old apparently toughed out the injury during Sunday's loss to the Colts, playing 35 of 60 defensive snaps. According to Cimini, coach Adam Gase said it will be "hard to hold [Jenkins] out," so it appears he's on track to play Thursday versus the Broncos.
Jenkins has signed a one-year, $5 million deal to remain with the Jets, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Per Mehta, the Patriots and Ravens were also in the mix, but the outside linebacker preferred to return to the Jets in order to play under the coaching of Gregg Williams once again. The 2016 third-rounder logged 32 tackles to go along with a career- and team-high eight sacks in 14 games last season.
Jenkins recorded eight sacks and 32 tackles in 2019.
Jenkins set a new career high in the sack department, besting his 2018 total by one. The outside linebacker has grown from a dependable edge-setter to a legitimate pass-rushing threat, so the Jets likely will need to pay a hefty price to retain Jenkins' services moving forward. The 2016 third-rounder will be a free agent for the first time in his career this offseason.
Jenkins recorded two sacks and a pass defensed across 43 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Giants.
Heading into the contest, Jenkins was questionable with a calf injury, but the ailment didn't appear to slow down the linebacker at all. He managed to play in 60 percent of the defensive snaps and notched his first two-sack game of the season, bringing his season total to five.
Jenkins (calf) is active for Sunday's contest against the Giants, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Jenkins' availability is a notable boost to the Jets' linebacker corps, with C.J. Mosley (groin) and Neville Hewitt (neck) both inactive. The fourth-year pro will draw his usual start opposite Brandon Copeland.
Jenkins (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Giants.
Jenkins is nursing a calf injury sustained during Week 9's loss to the Dolphins. With C.J. Mosley (groin) ruled out and Neville Hewitt (neck/knee) listed as doubtful, Jenkins' absence would be another notable blow for the Jets' linebacker corps.
Jenkins (calf) recorded one solo tackle and one sack during Sunday's 26-18 loss to the Dolphins.
Jenkins brought down an opposing quarterback for the second time this season during Sunday's embarrassing loss, a poor consolation for the Jets. The starting linebacker was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a calf issue, so the extent of his participation will be worth monitoring ahead of Week 10's tilt against the Giants.
Jenkins finished with two tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.
In his return following a two-game absence due to a calf injury, Jenkins saw a season-high 55 snaps in Sunday's win and came away with a sack for his efforts. He and the Jets now must get set to take on New England next week.
Jenkins (calf) will play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
The 25-year-old has missed the last two games with the injury, but will finally make his return to the field. He's played a total of 52 snaps on defense to this point in the season, and it's unclear what sort of role the Jets will give Jenkins for his first game back in three weeks.
Jenkins (calf) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Dallas.
Jenkins has missed the last two games with the injury, but he's been able to practice this week, which is an encouraging sign. He totaled seven sacks last season and has one in two appearances in 2019.
Jenkins (calf) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.
Jenkins missed the last two games with the calf issue and Wednesday represents his first practice participation since suffering the injury Sept. 16 against the Browns. The 25-year-old's status for Week 6 will remain questionable at best until he's able to put in a full practice.
Jenkins (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Philadelphia, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.
Jenkins was unable to practice this week coming out of the Week 4 bye and will miss his second consecutive game. The 25-year-old sustained the calf injury Week 2 against the Browns and has no official timeline for his return.
Jenkins (calf) is not practicing Thursday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Jenkins continues to nurse the calf injury that kept him sidelined Week 3 against New England. With C.J. Mosley (groin) also managing an injury, the Jets could be forced to enter Sunday's matchup against Philadelphia with a depleted linebacker corps.
Jenkins (calf) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Patriots.
The Jets will likely be without C.J. Mosley (hamstring) as well. This matchup will be difficult for the Jets without Jenkins or Mosley, as the Patriots rank fifth in the league with 422 total yards per game while turning the ball over just once.
Jenkins (calf) did not participate in Wednesday's practice, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
It was reported Tuesday that Jenkins would be week-to-week with the calf injury he suffered in Monday's game against the Browns. With that, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if Jenkins was held out of Sunday's game against the Patriots, but more clarity on that should come based on his participation Thursday and Friday this week.
Jenkins (calf) is week-to-week after leaving Monday's game versus the Browns early, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
With a shortened recovery schedule ahead of Sunday's game versus the Patriots, Jenkins isn't expected to be ready in time. He's been off to a strong start this year with a sack and a forced fumble, so his practice status should still be monitored. However, it's more likely Tarell Basham is starting at outside linebacker in Week 3.
Jenkins suffered a calf injury during the first quarter of Monday's game against the Browns and is doubtful to return, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Jenkins appeared visually frustrated after exiting the game midway through the first quarter. The fourth-year linebacker is one of the Jets' most productive pass rushers, so depth players Tarell Basham and Frankie Luvu will aim to step up and put pressure on Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield if Jenkins remains out.
Jenkins made three tackles and a sack in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Bills.
Jenkins played a pass-rushing role in the season opener, working on 41 of 70 defensive snaps (59 percent). He made the most of his opportunities as he tries to build on last year's seven sacks. Look for Jenkins to carry this momentum into Week 2's matchup against the Browns and QB Baker Mayfield, who was sacked five times in Week 1.
Jenkins (shoulder) notched one tackle for a loss during Thursday's preseason game against the Giants.
Jenkins appears to have fully recovered from the shoulder injury that kept him limited through spring workouts. The fourth-year pro is expected to start for the Jets' revamped defensive front.
