A report from last weekend mentioned that Jenkins could be shut down for the remainder of the year, given that he’s been battling through an ankle injury, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Adam Schefter reports that Jenkins is undergoing ankle surgery on Wednesday.
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.
