Giants placed CB Janoris Jenkins on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.
Word earlier in the week was Jenkins may be headed for ankle surgery. He was injured on a pick-six in the Thanksgiving night loss to the Redskins. At 2-9, the Giants have nothing to play for anymore, so getting Jenkins fixed up made the most sense. He still has three more years left on his contract. This is a boost to Derek Carr's matchup this week, but he'll be without his top two WRs. Wed, Nov 29, 2017 11:09:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Janoris Jenkins (ankle) could undergo season-ending ankle surgery.

Per Schefter, the injury has bothered Jenkins for the past two months, which might explain his recent struggles. Jenkins will likely need surgery at some point and with the Giants well out of the playoff race, it's possible he could be shut down as early as next week. Jenkins is expected to meet with doctors on Monday to determine the next course of action. In his absence, Ross Cockrell would likely start opposite Eli Apple with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie remaining at slot corner.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo says CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) "could miss some games."

Jenkins sprained his ankle returning a second-half Kirk Cousins interception for a touchdown on Thursday night. He was in a walking boot after game and is likely to miss time. With Donte Deayon out for the year, the Giants are down to Ross Cockrell behind Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.

Giants CB Janoris Jenkins (ankle) is in a walking boot.

Jenkins returned a second-half Kirk Cousins interception for a touchdown but was injured as he crossed the goal line. He was tangled up with Redskins RT Morgan Moses, who was also hurt on the play. Jenkins has 10 days to get ready for the Week 13 date with the Raiders. Consider him day to day.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Sep 22, 2017 10:50:00 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.
Thu, Sep 21, 2017 11:59:00 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.

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.

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.
