Jenkins had only one assist against the Packers Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins wraps up a strong 2016 season after proving to be one of the top cover corners in the league. The Giants payed a heavy price for him in free agency, but so far he's been well worth it.

Coach Ben McAdoo indicated Jenkins (back) would be limited in practice throughout the week, ESPN reports. It seems likely he'll be able to play in his first career playoff game against the Packers, however.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins was voted into the Pro Bowl, so he's obviously a key piece for the Giants secondary against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. We'll know more about his status for Sunday as the week goes on.

Jenkins is experiencing soreness in his back, ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Jenkins was held out of the second half of Sunday's victory over the Redskins, it isn't clear if he'd aggravated the back injury that prevented him from playing in last week's game against the Eagles. Until further light is shed on his situation, Jenkins can't be considered certain to be ready in time for the playoffs.

Jenkins (back) is active for Sunday's game in Washington.

EDGE Analysis

After practicing in a limited capacity all week, Jenkins should handle his normal duties as the Giants' No. 1 cornerback. On the other side of the coin, the team is locked into the fifth seed on the NFC side of the playoff bracket, meaning Jenkins could be pulled early if the Redskins jump out to an early lead. If the preceding comes to pass, rookie Eli Apple could receive a decent amount of run in the secondary for the second week in a row.

Jenkins (back) is listed as inactive Thursday at Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins endured a knee to the back this past Sunday versus the Lions, precipitating a battery of tests that cleared up of internal damage. However, with just three days to prepare for another game, the Giants opted for caution rather than press the issue with their No. 1 cornerback. Jenkins will hand over his typical starting gig to rookie Eli Apple, according to Art Stapleton of The Record.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins bruised his back against the Lions in Week 15 and was a limited participant in practice both Tuesday and Wednesday. If he ultimately can't play, the Giants will likely role with a starting cornerback tandem of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Eli Apple.

Jenkins (back) was limited in Tuesday's practice, SportsNet New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins took a blow to the back on Sunday and was forced to leave the game. Tests showed he didn't suffer any severe damage and his limited participation on Tuesday indicates he may be able to return as soon as Thursday's matchup with the Eagles. Trevin Wade, Cody Sensabaugh, and Eli Apple are all in line to receive a few extra snaps if Jenkins is limited or held out in Week 16.
