Jenkins Looking Increasingly Doubtful For Sept. 5 Opener

CB Mike Jenkins has spent all offseason rhabbing a surgically repaired shoulder



    From where we’re standing, it’s looking increasingly doubtful that injured cornerback Mike Jenkins will play in the regular season opener against the New York Giants on September 5.

    Jenkins said a few weeks ago that the Sept. 5 matchup with the reigning Super Bowl Champs was the most likely date for his return--dismissing the idea that he could return in time to see some preseason action--but just 13 days away from that game, Jenkins still has a way to go in rehabbing his surgically repaired shoulder.

    According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Jenkins won’t get an update on his status until he meets with Dr. James Andrews--and this meeting won’t take place until a few days before the opener, meaning that, to use Jenkins’ words, it might be “pushing it” to expect him to be back in time for the opener.

    I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Jenkins said, per the Star-Telegram. “When I saw the doctor, he said four weeks. So I’ve got to go back to the doctor and see what he says. But I’ll be 100 percent when I get back.”
