Jenkins signed a contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins, an eight-year veteran cornerback, heads to Arizona after spending the past two seasons in Tampa Bay. Last year with the Buccaneers, Jenkins totaled 14 tackles and five passes defended as he started in five games. The Cardinals have made it clear they are open to competition for the starting cornerback position alongside Patrick Peterson. While many expect Justin Bethel to be the starter in Week 1, Jenkins, along with rookies Brandon Williams and Harlan Miller, could make a run for the spot.

Jenkins logged 51 snaps in place of the injured Johnthan Banks in Week 5, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins only produced a tackle and pass defensed over those 51 plays, but figures to continue to start after the bye week if Banks is not ready for a return. The veteran corner is receiving his first meaningful playing time since his stint with the Raiders in 2013.

Jenkins is inactive Sunday against the Saints, Greg Auman of the Tampa Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins is the backup at right cornerback to Jonathan Banks. He typcially provides depth at the position, and the Bucs could've used that depth against the potent Saints' passing game.

Jenkins (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins missed the Bucs' ugly Week 1 loss to the Titans, but his presence likely wouldn't have made any difference, as he only appears to be the fourth or fifth cornerback.

Jenkins (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Joe Kania of the team's official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins was inactive in the opener with the injury, and has still only stepped on the field for one game in just over a season with the team. Despite the fact that a pectoral injury caused him to miss 15 games in his first season with the Bucs, the team sufficiently valued his experience and depth to re-sign him to a 1-year deal in the offseason. The eighth-year pro played in all four of the Bucs' preseason contests, totaling six tackles, one pass defensed and one forced fumble. Jenkins is currently slotted as the third-string right cornerback behind Tim Jennings and starter Johnthan Banks.

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.
