Cowboys CB Jenkins could miss a month
The Dallas Cowboys are expected to be without starting right cornerback Mike Jenkins for the next four games after he exited Sunday night’s loss at Philadelphia with an injured hamstring.
David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports Jenkins is expected to miss a minimum of three games and that could easily carry him past the Thanksgiving Day game against the Miami Dolphins. He’s the third top cornerback to be injured for Dallas this season.
“About the same,'' Jenkins said Monday when asked how the injury was. "You're guess is as good as mine.''
Orlado Scandrick, who missed three games with a high ankle sprain already, is expected to take over for Jenkins in the starting lineup. That will give Alan Ball a higher profile role in the nickel package, per the report.
