Jenkins doesn’t want to share with the Cowboys…
More from Rappaport, read here.
Cowboys COO Stephen Jones said Wednesday that Jenkins (shoulder) more than likely will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list. That doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll miss the first six games of the regular season, as the deadline to make that call comes on cut day. But he won’t be participating when it all starts.
Jenkins has requested a trade, and he sat out OTAs. He did show up in minicamp.
As Jones pointed out, however, it’s tough to trade a guy who’s hurt.
“It’s hard, last I checked,” Jones said. “It’s difficult.”
How hurt is Jenkins? And what specifically is the issue with his shoulder? That’s where it gets interesting.
Coach Jason Garrett called Jenkins’ shoulder issue “a little complicated,” but how complicated is the question.
I’m told by a Cowboys source that Jenkins has not communicated with the team regarding his injury. In fact, Jenkins has hardly talked to them. They’d like the dialogue. Yes, he is here being examined by the team’s trainers. But Jenkins’ camp has not shared enough records to satisfy the Cowboys, a team source said. So, it’s not just reporters with whom Jenkins has been silent.
Jenkins has been seeing a specialist for his shoulder, I’m told, visiting with renowned expert Dr. James Andrews. But Jenkins has not passed those findings to the Cowboys, and he hasn’t shared the records. Perhaps he would do so for a team that wanted to trade for him, and maybe this is his way to push for that.
The Cowboys continue to remain in the dark about what’s up with Jenkins’ shoulder. They know he injured it last year, then re-injured it, and is behind in his rehab compared to other guys on the team.
And yet some of you fans are still licking Jenkin’s ass all day long. The dude is a turd. Get rid of him ASAP. The defense will be fine without him. They stunk with him last season so saying he’s a must have player is stupid.
