Falcons unsure of extent of WR Jenkins’ injury
Question of the Day
SUWANEE, GA. (AP) - Atlanta Falcons receiver Michael Jenkins appeared to injure a shoulder during a team scrimmage on Friday night.
“I don’t know the extent of it, but I think we’ll know first thing in the morning,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “We’re encouraged by what we saw on the sideline there.”
“I just kind of missed him,” Ryan said.
Jenkins arose slowly and walked gingerly to the sideline to see the trainers.
“He’s the only guy we’re listing on our injury report,” Smith said.
The Falcons, whose preseason opener is next Friday against Kansas City, already planned no more live tackling drills over the next five days of training camp. Jacksonville is visiting Atlanta’s complex in Flowery Branch for two days of practice next week.
Third-string quarterback John Parker Wilson stepped up in the pocket to avoid pressure and hit running back Antoine Smith for a long TD down the right side.
Leading playmakers, running back Michael Turner, tight end Tony Gonzalez, receiver Roddy White, defensive end John Abraham and linebacker Mike Peterson, only played a couple of series.
Three defensive starters were held out to prevent further injury: Left cornerback Dunta Robinson (hamstring), right cornerback Brian Williams (knee) and defensive tackle Peria Jerry (knee).
Receiver Harry Douglas (knee) and running back Jerious Norwood (hip) were two leading reserves held out for precautionary reasons.
The Falcons announced that a crowd of approximately 12,200 attended the free event at North Gwinnett High School.
