The Buccaneers re-signed Jenkins (pectoral) on Thursday, Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports.

A first-round draft pick of the Cowboys back in 2008, Jenkins was limited to just one game in 2014, after suffering a pectoral injury in Week 1. He'll likely compete for the nickelback job in 2015, as the Bucs figure to stick with Alterraun Verner and Johnathan Banks as the starting corners.

Jenkins has been placed on injured reserve due to a pectoral injury, ruling him out for the remainder of this season, FOX Sports reports.

Jenkins left late in Sunday's season opener with what has initially termed as a shoulder injury, but judging by the latest report, it appears the veteran cornerback tore his pectoral muscle. Nonetheless, Jenkins' 2014 season is now over, opening a starting cornerback position for the Buccaneers. With the most likely candidate to replace Jenkins, Johnthan Banks, suffering a head injury Sunday, Tampa Bay's secondary enters this week's game against the Rams with questions in their secondary.

Jenkins suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's regular season opener and will not return, Sports Talk Florida reports.

Jenkins entered Week 1 with a hamstring injury, but now carries a shoulder issue as well. Furthermore, with Johnthan Banks nursing a head injury, the Buccaneers are increasingly thin at cornerback for the remainder of Sunday's contest.

Jenkins (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against Carolina, the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Jenkins is out there if you need him Sunday, but a wait-and-see approach is in order for IDP owners, with Alterraun Verner and Johnthan Banks also in the team's cornerback mix.

Jenkins (hamstring) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina.

Jenkins will suit up Sunday, but he'll likely be no more than the team's third corner behind Alterraun Verner and Johnthan Banks. He's not likely to be an IDP factor.

Jenkins (hamstring) will be eased into the lineup Sunday against the Panthers, ESPN.com reports.

Jenkins, who missed nearly a month with an injured hamstring, is still listed as a starting cornerback on the team's depth chart. He should play in Sunday's season opener versus Carolina after he returned to practice this week, but will likely split time with Johnthan Banks opposite Alterraun Verner.

Jenkins (leg) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills, Roy Cummings of the Tampa Bay Tribune reports.

Jenkins has been sidelined with a lower-leg injury since before the first preseason game. With Jenkins missing both preseason games and fellow corner Alterraun Verner dealing with his own injury, the Buccaneers is perilously thin in the secondary with only two weeks remaining until the regular season begins.
