After missing about a month of action with an injury to his right hamstring, Cowboys’ cornerback Mike Jenkins returned to practice on Monday. Jenkins reportedly participated in team and individual drills, while Miles Austin, who is dealing with a hamstring injury of his own, worked with trainers on the sideline.
It’s been a rough year for Jenkins, from a health standpoint. He suffered a stinger early on in training camp that kept him out of the preseason entirely, and he didn’t return until week one against the Jets. He suffered the hamstring injury around a month ago, and between the stinger and the hamstring, struggled with a shoulder injury.
Alan Ball replaced Jenkins in the lineup over the past four weeks, and frankly, hasn’t been all that impressive; it appears now though, that Jenkins will be back for the team’s matchup with Arizona this Sunday.
On the year, Jenkins has logged 18 tackles and one interception.
