Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Week 14.

The Rams will get back LCB Trumaine Johnson (thigh), but will be without their best corner and their strong safety (T.J. McDonald, shoulder - I.R.). Wheels up on Calvin Johnson, and to a slightly lesser extent Matthew Stafford.

Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Jenkins was shaken up twice in this one, both times by his own teammates. In the midst of an impressive season, the contract-year corner is week to week.

Rams contract-year RCB Janoris Jenkins hinted he'll test the free-agent market.

The Rams have been talking extension with Jenkins for awhile and just offered him another contract during the bye week, but Jenkins didn't sound impressed by it. "When they gave me those numbers," Jenkins said. "It was something I didn’t want to hear. I ended it just like that. I’ll play it out. I’m gonna bet on myself." Supremely talented, Jenkins had a knack for giving up a ton of big plays while also creating some his first three seasons. In year four, Jenkins is currently PFF's No. 16 corner, playing strong in coverage and against the run.

Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins exited Week 2 against the Redskins with a knee injury.

He's being called questionable to return after leaving midway through the fourth quarter. Marcus Roberson is in the game opposite Trumaine Johnson.

The Rams have opened extension talks with contract-year CB Janoris Jenkins.

Jenkins, who turns 27 in October, is owed just over $1 million in salary and bonuses this season, the final year on his rookie deal. Jenkins looked like a future shutdown corner at Florida early in his college career, but has been an up-and-down disappointment with the Rams. Jenkins graded out 50th among 110 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' cornerback ratings.

ESPN Rams reports Nick Wagoner believes the team would prefer to do a long-term deal with RCB Janoris Jenkins over LCB Trumaine Johnson.

Both Jenkins and Johnson are entering their contract seasons, and the Rams are likely to only sign one of the two to a long-term deal. Jenkins has been more durable during his first three seasons and probably has the most upside. Johnson has played better than Jenkins at times, but has battled injuries and inconsistency. Neither will break the bank unless they make a 2015 leap. Jenkins appears locked into a starting job, while Johnson is competing with E.J. Gaines.

Rams CB Janoris Jenkins (knee) is active for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

For the first time this season, the Rams have their top-two corners, Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson, healthy for the same game. Inactive for the Rams are RB Trey Watts, S Maurice Alexander, CB Marcus Roberson, LB Daren Bates, OT Brandon Washington, TE Alex Bayer, and DL Ethan Westbrooks.

Rams declared CB Janoris Jenkins, S Maurice Alexander, S Cody Davis, LB Korey Toomer, OL Brandon Washington, TE Alex Bayer and DL Ethan Westbrooks inactive for Week 9 against the 49ers.

Jenkins injured his knee Week 7 against the Seahawks. He is week to week. Luckily for the Rams, Trumaine Johnson is finally healthy and active. He will fill in at corner.

Rams declared CB Janoris Jenkins, CB Trumaine Johnson, C Tim Barnes, QB Case Keenum, TE Alex Bayer, DE Ethan Westbrooks, and S Maurice Alexander inactive for Week 8 against the Chiefs.

The Rams are minus their two two corners, leaving rookies E.J. Gaines and Marcus Roberson as the starters. Luckily, the Chiefs have one of the worst receiver depth charts in the league.

Rams RCB Janoris Jenkins was forced from Week 7 against the Seahawks with a right knee injury.

Jenkins made a tackle on TE Cooper Helfet before the pile of other players landed on him, bending both of his knees awkwardly. His right knee looked like it took the worst of it. Jenkins had to be helped off the field with tears rolling down his face. The Rams are already down LCB Trumaine Johnson (knee).
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 02:20:00 PM

The Rams are "counting on" CB Janoris Jenkins to emerge as their No. 1 corner.

Jenkins was easily the Rams' top corner in 2013, but with Cortland Finnegan now out of town, they're relying even more heavily on the gifted third-year player. Jenkins was an immediate difference maker as a rookie, but fell off some last season. He allowed seven touchdowns and a passer rating of 115.3. The Rams need Jenkins and fellow CB Trumaine Johnson to elevate their play in 2014.

Rams LCB Janoris Jenkins (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

He didn't practice on Friday, further upgrading an already-cake matchup for Drew Brees. Jenkins has been St. Louis' top cornerback throughout the year.
