Janoris Jenkins Reinstated by Giants After Suspension for Rules Violation

08 November 2017

The Giants on Tuesday announced they have reinstated the cornerback from a brief suspension. While head coach Ben McAdoo said at the time that all three were excused for personal reasons, he later explained that he and his staff hadn't heard from Jenkins before the no-show. Two other players, cornerback Eli Apple and running back Paul Perkins, also missed that practice, but alerted the team about their travel difficulties and were hit with a fine. It was the second veteran cornerback suspended in three weeks.

Jenkins "indefinite" suspension lasted one game. Still, he's struggled since losing wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall to season-ending injuries and could be on the verge of being benched after the team's 51-17 home loss Sunday to the Rams.

In an attempt to salvage their disastrous season, the Giants also reacquired linebacker Deontae Skinner after he was re-signed and waived by NY earlier this year. He has 24 tackles and an interception he returned 43 yards for a touchdown in the Giants' win in Denver. Jenkins will be eligible to play when the Giants play the San Francisco 49ers later this week.
