Cowboys’ cornerback Mike Jenkins was limited in practice on Thursday after suffering a minor knee injury in practice the day before, the latest hurdle in a preseason that saw the former Pro Bowler miss most of training camp and each of the team’s four exhibition games.
But Jenkins, after getting an MRI on the knee, believes he’s ready for the season opener against the Jets, Sunday night in New York.
"I'm good. It's football. It's an injury," Jenkins said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I got it checked out. I'm ready to move on. I'm good to go."
Meanwhile, it seems like Terence Newman will miss the opener, though nothing has been made official yet.
Jerry Jones said Wednesday that Newman was unlikely to play, and, earlier in the week, a source close to the situation told FoxSportsSouthwest.com that Newman would be held out. But head coach Jason Garrett said yesterday that he had yet to make a decision about the veteran’s status for Sunday.
