Cowboys’ cornerback Mike Jenkins was forced to leave Sunday night’s match-up with Philadelphia in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury. He suffered the injury earlier in the game, in the third quarter. Now, it appears that the Cowboys could be without Jenkins for a month.
Jenkins underwent an MRI on the hamstring yesterday, and according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, the results revealed that Jenkins may miss up to four weeks.
Asked about how the hamstring felt between Sunday night and Monday, Jenkins replied: "About the same. Your guess is as good as mine.''
Without Jenkins, the Cowboys will start Orlando Scandrick opposite Terence Newman. Scandrick will still man the slot in some packages, and in these cases, Alan Ball will step into the outside corner role.
