The Dallas Cowboys announced a few moves today by placing five players on the Active/Physically Unable to Play list including cornerback Mike Jenkins. The cornerback is coming off of shoulder surgery and has not yet been cleared to practice. It's a good sign that he is showing up training camp since he skipped the offseason workouts due to being unhappy with his contract and standing with the team.
Overall the Cowboys announced today a total of five players heading to Active/PUP.

Jenkins is expected to have a new role with the team after the Cowboys drafted Morris Claiborne and brought in Brandon Carr in the offseason from the Kansas City Chiefs in free agency. Both are assumed to be the starters at cornerback in the Cowboys base defense.
