Dallas Cowboys Injury Update: Mike Jenkins Will Travel With Team To New York

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins will travel with the team to New York for Wednesday's season opener against the Giants, according to Josh Ellis of DallasCowboys.com. This could be a sign that the team will consider playing Jenkins, according to Ellis:

Players who have officially been ruled out typically do not travel to away games, so the Cowboys are leaving open the possibility that Jenkins could be on the field against the Giants. He could be listed as doubtful or questionable on the final injury report, to be released Tuesday.

Jenkins implied that his status will likely be a game-time decision, after he had limited participation in Monday's practice and has yet to take part in full contact drills since the end of the 2011 season. Jenkins had shoulder surgery in the offseason and while he says he's fully healthy, the big question is whether Jenkins is in good enough game shape to face the Giants.

There's also the question of where he'll play if he is indeed active. With Brandon Carr and Mo Claiborne set to start on the outside, Jenkins will be splitting time with Orlando Scandrick in slot duty.
