Jenkins, a 2nd round pick out of Clemson, has recorded 25 total tackles in his young career. The 6′ 4” native of Clemson,
South Carolina and D.W. Daniel High School standout spent his entire rookie season on IR after tearing his ACL in a Redskins preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens.
What started out as a good week in Redskins Camp, with news of RGIII’s medical clearance, has took a turn for the worse with news of Adam Carriker having yet another surgery and Rob Jackson also being suspended for violating the same policy Jenkins, who was looking to take over the starting defensive end job that was vacated by Carriker’s injury. No word yet on whether or not Jarvis will appeal the ruling.
This gives the Crying Redskins fan something else to cry about.
