Jenkins said the stinger he suffered in training camp is geting better and his hyperextended knee is also recovering. And that bruised shoulder is trying to find it's way to better health.
"I don't think I'm going to get any better no time soon," Jenkins said. "So all I can do is keep pushing."
Asked if he was 30 percent, Jenkins joked that he was. The extra day off this week -- the Cowboys host the Redskins on Monday night -- could help a player like Jenkins, who said he can't even get a massage because he's in so much pain.
"My whole body hurts," Jenkins said. "Feels like I'm still in [training] camp. I'm pushing and I'm getting better day-by-day."
"It's going to be a challenge," Jenkins said. "I'm pretty sure we'll work through it. A lot of guys on this team that push us, they're backups on the starters' tail. That's what keeps us going. There are no slackers on this team. If anybody can't go, we have someone next to us."
