Texans' Jordan Jenkins: Heads to Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) signed a two-year deal with the Texans on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jenkins spent the first five seasons of his professional career with the Jets, racking up a total of 24.5 sacks. He was limited to 12 games in 2020 due to a shoulder injury, though he is expected to be healthy in time for the 2021 season after undergoing surgery. He joins a number of offseason additions on the defensive side of the ball for Houston and should play a significant role among its linebacker corps.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Will need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Thursday that Jenkins (shoulder) will require surgery to address his injury, Connor Hughes of The Athletic reports.

Jenkins is already on IR for the final three weeks of the season, but the news that he'll need surgery could impact his stock in free agency. The 2016 third-round pick had his sack totals decrease from eight to two from 2019 to 2020, but he notched 32 solo tackles both seasons. Through 12 games in 2019, he also had one defended pass and a forced fumble.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Jenkins (shoulder) on injured reserve Wednesday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Jenkins missed last week's loss to the Seahawks with the shoulder injury but he won't return this season, as he's forced to miss at least the next three games. The Georgia product had a decent season at linebacker in 2020, accumulating 32 tackles (15 solo), two sacks and a forced fumble through 12 games. With Jenkins sidelined, Frankie Luvu and Tarell Basham assume starting roles at outside linebacker.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Out for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Seattle, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Jenkins' shoulder injury will force him to miss his first game of the season, making Bryce Hager and Frankie Luvu candidates to handle increased roles. Coach Adam Gase hinted earlier this week that Jenkins had a chance to play, so it's possible that he could require only a one-game absence.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Coach Adam Gase said he "wouldn't be surprised" if Jenkins manages to suit up for Sunday's road game against the Seahawks, but he did note that the starting linebacker is in "a lot of pain." Given that he's missed two straight practices, Jenkins will likely need to practice in at least some capacity Friday for any chance of suiting up Week 14.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Dealing with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) was a non-participant during Wednesday's practice, Rich Cimini of reports.

Jenkins has dealt with the shoulder injury during the season already, so it appears the issue continues to bother him. The Georgia product has been strong in a starting role the past four games, racking up 23 tackles (nine solo) and a sack over that span. If he's forced to miss Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Frankie Luvu or Bryce Hager could be in line for a starting role.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Season-best game in Week 11 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins recorded nine tackles (two solo), half a sack, a tackle for loss and a pass defensed in Sunday's 34-28 loss to the Chargers.

Jenkins set a new season high for tackles, topping his previous high-water mark by four. He split a sack with Nathan Shepherd on Los Angeles' opening drive, but Jenkins is still having a quiet season rushing the passer. Jenkins has just 1.5 sacks after racking up seven in 2018 and eight last season.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ribs/shoulder) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs.

The 26-year-old finished the week with a limited practice to earn the questionable tag while dealing with the rib/shoulder issues, and he's ready to play Week 8. Jenkins has played 250 defensive snaps through seven games but has only nine total tackles and one sack.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Deemed questionable against Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (ribs/shoulder) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Rich Cimini of reports.

Jenkins upgraded to limited participation for the final two practices of the week, putting him on track to play Sunday barring a setback. The 2016 third-round pick has just nine tackles and a sack through seven games, so his IDP fantasy value is negligible.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Dealing with rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins suffered a rib injury during Sunday's loss to the Bills and likely will miss practices this week, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

There doesn't appear to be major concern about Jenkins' status for the upcoming game against the Chiefs, but it'll depend on how he responds to practice this week. The 26-year-old has generated just nine tackles and a sack through seven games this season. Bryce Hager is in line for first-team reps until Jenkins can return.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Suiting up vs. Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) is active Week 5 against Arizona.

Jenkins could only muster a pair of limited practices this week despite getting extra rest from a Thursday night game the week before, but he'll ultimately suit up and take on his regular outside linebacker role. He notably hasn't had a tackle in back-to-back weeks despite logging 49 defensive snaps, however, making it difficult to predict what type of role the 26-year-old might see Sunday.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets have given Jenkins (shoulder) a questionable designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Jenkins has been nursing a shoulder injury. He ended up playing through the issue in last Thursday's game against the Broncos but it is still hindering him. Thus, he is looking like a game-time decision Sunday. Frankie Luvu and Jordan Willis will be next in line to get snaps at outside linebacker in his absence if Jenkins is not given the green light.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Set to face Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) is active for the Jets' Thursday night game against the Broncos.

The 26-year-old linebacker was held to limited participation in practice on a short week, but the Jets' training staff has evidently seen enough from Jenkins pre-game to determine him active for this matchup between 0-3 teams. Jenkins has one sack in three appearances this year after posting seven-plus sacks each of the past two seasons. Jeff Driskel absorbed five sacks last week for the Broncos against Tampa Bay, though Brett Rypien (sacked once on 10 dropbacks himself against the Buccaneers) will earn his first career start Thursday night.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Expected to face Broncos
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (shoulder) is expected to suit up against Denver on Thursday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Jenkins is officially listed as questionable for Thursday Night Football, but it looks as though he's trending in the right direction. The Jets will declare a final word on Jenkins' availability when the inactives list is released approximately 90 minutes ahead of Thursday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Questionable for TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Estimated as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins was listed as a limited participant on Monday's estimated injury report due to a shoulder injury, Rich Cimini of 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.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Back with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Career-best eight sacks ahead of FA
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Two-sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Jordan Jenkins: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
