Barring change in schedule, Mike Jenkins unlikely to be ready for season opener

Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins is not scheduled to returned to the see Dr. James Andrews for an update on his surgically repaired shoulder until days before the Sept. 5 season opener against the Giants.

Considering he has not practiced at all since the end of last season, that time table makes it unlikely he will  be ready to go for the first game even if he is cleared by Andrews.

Jenkins says his shoulder feels good and he is in good shape but doesn't plan on playing until he gets the go ahead from Andrews.

Even he admits that the opener might be "pushing it" based on when he is scheduled to return to see Dr. Andrews.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Jenkins said. “When I saw the doctor, he said four weeks. So I’ve got to go back to the doctor and see what he says. But I’ll be 100 percent when I get back.”

The four-week time table is based on when Jenkins last visited Andrews on Aug. 5.
