Giants May Shut Down CB Janoris Jenkins For Season With Ankle Injury

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Giants could shut down CB Janoris Jenkins and have him undergo ankle surgery.

According to Schefter, Jenkins’ ankle injury has hindered him for the past eight weeks or so and has clearly impacted his play this season.

As of now, the expectation is that Jenkins will undergo surgery at some point this offseason, which could be as soon as this week.

Jenkins, 29 is a former second-round pick of the Rams back in 2012. He spent four years with the Rams before signing a five-year, $62.5 million contract that included $28.8 million guaranteed with the Giants.

Jenkins stands to make base salaries of $12.9 million and $10.9 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Jenkins appeared in nine games and recorded 31 tackles, three interceptions with two of them being returned for touchdowns, a forced fumble and nine pass defenses.
