Cardinals' Mike Jenkins: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (knee) will be placed on IR, ending his season.

Jenkins was brought in at the beginning of training camp as the Cardinals looked to strengthen the depth of their defensive backfield. However, the veteran suffered an ACL injury in Sunday's preseason game and had to be carted off the field. At 31, it's tough to guess where Jenkins will go from here and if he'll be revitalize his career after a year on the sidelines.

Cardinals' Mike Jenkins: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (hand) returned to practice on Sunday, Mike Jurecki of Fox Sports 910 reports.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins is scheduled to have surgery on his broken hand Monday and is expected to miss two-to-three weeks, FOX Sports 910 Phoenix reports.

Jenkins broke his hand during Friday's practice session, which came just shortly after he signed with the team in mid-July. Now that he'll be sidelined for a couple weeks, Asa Jackson and Shaun Prater could see more snaps at cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson, especially since Justin Bethel (foot) remains on the PUP list.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins signed a contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Jenkins, an eight-year veteran cornerback, heads to Arizona after spending the past two seasons in Tampa Bay.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bucs CB Mike Jenkins (hamstring) was limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buccaneers cornerback Mike Jenkins (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Joe Kania of the team's official website reports.

Jenkins was inactive in the opener with the injury, and has still only stepped on the field for one game in just over a season with the team. Despite the fact that a pectoral injury caused him to miss 15 games in his first season with the Bucs, the team sufficiently valued his experience and depth to re-sign him to a 1-year deal in the offseason.

The eighth-year pro played in all four of the Bucs' preseason contests, totaling six tackles, one pass defensed and one forced fumble. Jenkins is currently slotted as the third-string right cornerback behind Tim Jennings and starter Johnthan Banks.
