Giants reinstated CB Janoris Jenkins.
Like Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie last month, Jenkins' "indefinite" suspension lasted one game. His return will be a big boost for a defense which needs one. The Giants also signed LB Deontae Skinner, waived DE Jordan Williams and DB Tim Scott, and placed LB Nigel Harris on injured reserve Tuesday. Nov 7 - 11:49 AM

Giants suspended CB Janoris Jenkins for a violation of team rules.

It was announced as an indefinite ban, but will almost certainly be just for Week 9. Jenkins apparently didn't report to the team in a timely fashion following the Week 8 bye. Jenkins is in the midst of another strong season as the Giants' highly-paid No. 1 cornerback. His absence will be a big boost for Jared Goff, more firmly planting him on the Week 9 streamer radar. Daily Slant: The Giants are 21st in pass DVOA (per FO) and have given up the 7th-most fantasy points to QBs with Jenkins in all but one game. Although he’s only delivered two multi-score outings, the Giants have allowed the 4th-most passing TDs (14). There are concerns with Goff’s accuracy as he's posted five games with completion rates between 46.8-59.5% - and ranks 29th in adjusted completion percentage - but he connected on at least 72.4% in the other two. He has enough upside to be a solid GPP target in this favorable spot.

Janoris Jenkins (ankle) is active for Week 3 against the Eagles.

We would expect him to spend a lot of time chasing Alshon Jeffery while Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie runs around with Nelson Agholor. The rest of the Giants' Week 3 inactives are MLB B.J. Goodson, LB J.T. Thomas, RB Wayne Gallman, TE Matt LaCosse, QB Davis Webb, and DE Avery Moss.

According to ESPN's Brian Franey, Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (questionable, ankle) is on track to play Sunday against the Eagles.

Franey was told by a team official that Jenkins "looked good" during Saturday's walkthrough and that barring a setback during warmups, he should be ready to roll against the Eagles. Jenkins will be tasked with quieting Eagles stud Alshon Jeffery, who is coming off a seven-catch, 92-yard performance in Week 2.

Dan Duggan of NJ Advance Media expects Giants. CB Janoris Jenkins (questionable, ankle) to be inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Jenkins sat out Monday night's game with an ankle injury and was absent from practice this week. He'll likely test out his ankle in warmups just as he did in Week 2, though Duggan believes there's "little reason for optimism." His absence would be an upgrade to Alshon Jeffery's matchup.
Sep 24 - 9:40 AM

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (questionable, ankle) is a game-time decision for Week 3 against the Eagles.

Jenkins didn't practice all week, but is expected to participate in Saturday's walkthrough. He's on the doubtful side after missing Week 2. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will take on a larger role in base sets if Jenkins is held out.
Sep 23 - 2:44 PM

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) is questionable for Week 3 against the Eagles.

He's not looking particularly likely to suit up on Sunday after missing Week 2. Jenkins' absence would be a big boost to the outlook of Alshon Jeffery.
Sep 22 - 10:50 AM

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

After sitting out Monday night against the Lions, Jenkins has now missed the first two practices of the week. It is possible he gets back on the field Friday and is able to suit up against the Eagles, but he is looking doubtful for Week 3. Jenkins sitting would be a big upgrade for Alshon Jeffery.
Sep 21 - 11:59 AM

ESPN's Jordan Raanan expects Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) to play in Week 3.

Both Jenkins and MLB B.J. Goodson (leg) were forced to miss Monday's game, but Raanan reports they are only "dealing with one-week injuries." Jenkins returning would be good news for a defense which has to go up against the Eagles' suddenly strong passing attack on Sunday.
Sep 19 - 9:43 AM

Giants declared CB Janoris Jenkins, MLB B.J. Goodson, QB Davis Webb, RB Wayne Gallman, LB Keenan Robinson, TE Matt LaCosse, and DE Avery Moss inactive for Week 2 against the Lions.

Jenkins (ankle) and Goodson (shin) were both listed questionable. Calvin Munson will start for Goodson, while Ross Cockrell is the No. 3 corner.
Sep 18 - 7:13 PM

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle, hand) has been downgraded to questionable for Monday Night Football against the Lions.

Jenkins is a legitimate difference maker on the boundary, so his loss would be felt against Golden Tate, Kenny Golladay, and Marvin Jones. It sounds like Jenkins will be a game-time decision ahead of Monday night's Giants home opener.
Sep 17 - 11:59 AM

Giants RCB Janoris Jenkins (back) is active for the Wild Card Round.

Inactive for the Giants are OT Will Beatty, S Nat Berhe, RB George Winn, DE Owa Odighizuwa, TE Jerell Adams, LB Ishaq Williams and DE Jason Pierre-Paul.
Jan 8 - 3:28 PM

Janoris Jenkins (back) is active for Week 17 against the Redskins.

Jenkins is back after missing Week 16, but will likely be on a snap count as the Giants keep one eye on the playoffs. Inactive for the Giants are DE Jason Pierre-Paul, S Nat Berhe, CB Coty Sensabaugh, OT Bobby Hart, TE Jerell Adams, RB George Winn and LB Ishaq Williams.
Jan 1 - 3:01 PM

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (back) was limited at Thursday's practice.

It is his second day in a row on the practice field. It looks like Jenkins will be healthy enough to play Week 17, but the Giants could hold him out in a meaningless game. He will at the very least be ready for the Wild Card round.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 01:11:00 PM

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (back) will be inactive for Thursday's game against the Eagles.

It's the right call for a team all but assured of a playoff spot facing an Eagles receiver corps without a downfield threat to speak of. Jenkins will heal up for 10 days and return for the Week 17 finale as he looks to get right for the Wild Card round. Jenkins' absence means more playing time for rookie Eli Apple. Also inactive for the Giants are WR Tavarres King, OT Will Beatty, S Nat Berhe, DE Jason Pierre-Paul, RB George Winn and DE Ishaq Williams.
