The cornerback out of Southeast was solid against Washington Monday night making three sure-stop solo tackles that prevented a big gain and covered Redskins’ receivers like a blanket.
His only disappointment was not holding onto a potential interception. He continues to play hard despite a sprained shoulder that forced him to temporarily leave the game and has eight solo tackles and two pass deflections in three games.
In his Pro Bowl year in 2009 Jenkins had 19 pass deflections and five interceptions. Last year he slumped to only nine pass deflections and one interception in a season that was considered lost.
Jenkins is determined to get back to his Pro Bowl style of play the the talent he showed at USF. So far this year he has been a sure tackler with eight solo tackles and has been among the best cover corners in the country.
