Giants reinstate CB Janoris Jenkins after one-game suspension

Without Jenkins - the team's top cornerback - the defensive backfield was in shambles, as Jared Goff shredded the Giants for a career-high four touchdown passes, needing only 22 passes to amass 311 yards.

The New York Giants announced on Tuesday that cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been reinstated after being hit with an indefinite suspension a week ago for a violation of team rules.

McAdoo can't totally be faulted for his team's struggles, as the Giants have endured an inordinate amount of injuries to key players this season.

Coach Ben McAdoo originally said that Jenkins' absence was excused.




The Giants lost 51-17 to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday without Jenkins in the lineup.

To make room for Jenkins and Skinner on the 53-man roster, the Giants waived defensive end Jordan Williams and defensive back Tim Scott. Linebacker Nigel Harris (ribs) was placed on injured reserve. In their first post-bye practice, Jenkins was one of three players (along with Paul Perkins and Eli Apple) not present.

He has 24 tackles, six passes defended, an interception and forced fumble this season. He most recently had a stint on the Raiders' practice squad.
