Mike Jenkins Injury Update: Dr. James Andrews Expected To Examine Shoulder

Mike Jenkins is still healing from his shoulder surgery over the offseason, and it's just as unclear when he will be back with the Cowboys as it is whether or not he will be with the team at all. Jenkins is at risk of going on the reserve list when the Cowboys chop their roster down to 53 players, which would for him to miss at least six games this season.

In order to be cleared to practice for the Cowboys, Jenkins will have to pass a physical, so Dr. Andrew's evaluation will be interesting in that regard. The Cowboys declined Jenkins' trade request earlier this offseason, despite signing Brandon Carr and drafting Morris Claiborne over the offseason.

Jenkins had extensive surgery in January to repair his shoulder.
