Jenkins, who was placed on injured reserve after undergoing ankle surgery earlier Wednesday in Charlotte, will face a three-month recovery timetable, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

That puts Jenkins on track to enter the Giants' offseason program at full strength heading into the third year of his five-year, $62.5 million pact with New York. Though his solid coverage skills in 2016 keyed the Giants' defensive turnaround, Jenkins regressed in his second season with the team while playing through the ankle injury the past two months and missing one game due to a team-imposed suspension. He'll wrap up the campaign with 31 tackles, nine pass breakups, three interceptions, a forced fumble and two touchdowns across nine contests.

Jenkins (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve Wednesday, ending his season, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Jenkins will undergo surgery on his ankle, which has been bothering him for about two months.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins becomes the 18th Giants player to land on IR and second cornerback in three days after Donte Deayon (forearm) was shut down for the season Monday. After turning in an impressive inaugural campaign with the Giants in 2016, Jenkins' coverage suffered while he battled the injury for most of the season, though he still managed three interceptions and nine pass breakups in nine games. His absence the rest of the way should translate to more snaps for the likes of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Ross Cockrell and Eli Apple.

Jenkins (ankle) will meet with doctors Monday and could require season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins was spotted in a walking boot following the Giants' loss to the Redskins on Thursday after aggravating the ankle injury that has been bothering him for the better part of two months. Though he's only missed two games this season -- one of which was due to a team-imposed suspension -- Jenkins' play has been impacted by the injury, which compromises his ability to cut and change direction. Even if Jenkins opts to forgo surgery and play the Giants' final five games of the season, he'll likely require surgery for the ankle at some point during the offseason.

Jenkins (ankle) could miss a few games, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins injured his ankle on his league leading second pick-six in Thursday's Thanksgiving loss to the Redskins. He was subsequently seen in a walking boot following the game, and described the injury was described as "painful" Friday. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie would likely start at cornerback in his place if he does indeed miss some time.

Jenkins was seen in a walking boot following the Giants' 20-10 Thanksgiving loss to the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins injured his foot on an interception he returned for a touchdown during the third quarter. He is the first player in the league to log two pick-sixes this season. The 29-year-old has now recorded interceptions in two consecutive games, and his season total is up to three. However, his status for next week's game against he Raiders remains uncertain until the team provides more clarity on his injury.

Jenkins recorded five tackles (four solo), one pass defensed and an interception in Sunday's win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins had a crucial interception late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest that set up the Giants for a go ahead score. The Jackrabbit now has 31 tackles (27 solo), seven pass defensed and two interceptions on the year. He'll have a quick turnaround this week as he faces off against Kirk Cousins and the Redskins' passing attack Thanksgiving night.

The Giants reinstated Jenkins from his indefinite suspension Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

As was the case with fellow cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie earlier this season, Jenkins' suspension lasted all of one game, with the Giants' top cover man sitting out the blowout loss to the Rams on Sunday. It's expected that Jenkins will step back into a starting role Week 10 against the 49ers, likely resulting in reduced responsibilities for Ross Cockrell, who logged a season-high 64 defensive snaps in the game against Los Angeles.

Jenkins (suspension) is expected to be back for Week 10's game against the 49ers, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It seems that Jenkins' suspension will be just one game, as he still is a critical part of the Giants' secondary. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will still get the start Sunday against the Rams, but he'll likely be slotted back to the No. 3 corner role once Jenkins returns.

Jenkins was suspended indefinitely Tuesday for a violation of team rules, Michael Eisen of the Giants' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The suspension will take effect immediately, so the cornerback will not play in this Sunday's game against the Rams. According to the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, a team-sanctioned indefinite suspension cannot be more than four games, so the latest Jenkins could return would be Week 13's matchup with the Raiders. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who served a one-game suspension earlier this season, is in line to start at cornerback in Jenkins' absence.
