Mike Jenkins facing 4-6 months of rehab
Jenkins is looking at a 4-6 month recovery time, according to a source. If he needs the full rehab time, then he could miss all of the offseason work and be ready for training camp, which will begin in late July.
Jenkins suffered the injury on Dec. 11 against the New York Giants and was limited for the final four games. He wore a protective harness that made it difficult for him to lift his arm over his head. He aggravated the injury in the Jan. 1 season finale against the Giants, seeing action only in multiple wide receiver formations.
Safety Barry Church had a similar surgery before the season ended.
Backup nose tackle Josh Brent had knee surgery since the season ended. He missed four games with a sprained medial collateral ligament and kneecap injury.
