Cornerback Mike Jenkins returned to action on Sunday for the first time since suffering a hamstring injury in the October 30 loss to Philadelphia, and was welcomed by none other than Larry Fitzgerald, a perennial Pro Bowl pick, widely regarded as one of the best receivers in the league.
It was a big test for Jenkins off the bat, and Jenkins passed, limiting Fitzgerald to a relatively meager 55 yards on four catches and making one tackle. Despite faring well in his return, Jenkins said after the game that he could feel effects of the long layoff from live action.
"I think I did a pretty nice job as far as just playing," said Jenkins, per the Dallas Morning News. "I just have to get back in game shape."
