Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins is making progress in his rehab from shoulder surgery but he still has a ways to go before he will be cleared to play.
Jenkins will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list. He is at the Cowboys rookie minicamp working with the team's training staff.
That Jenkins could not throw the football overhand while playing coach with a strength coach is not alarming, according to a Cowboys trainer who said limited range of motion was normal with rotator cuff surgery.
Jenkins actually played with one arm and a lack of range motion in his right shoulder last year. The Cowboys don't want a repeat of that which is why he had the surgery and is going through the lengthy rehab process.
The trainer compared it to baseball pitcher undergoing rotator cuff surgery, usually sideling them for a year because they need a full range of motion to throw. Jenkins doesn't need a full range of motion but it is something that takes time to return.
