Cowboys owner Jerry Jones likes the new additions at cornerback in Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne. But he seems just excited to see an old face back in the rotation in former starter Mike Jenkins, who missed training camp and the season opener because of offseason shoulder surgery.
Jenkins appears ready to play against the Seahawks Sunday and Jones is anxious to see how the Cowboys use him along with Carr, Claiborne and nickel back Orlando Scandrick.
“I’d obviously like to see him out there on all of our money packages, nickel, dime, all of that,” Jones said his weekly radio show Tuesday on KRLD-FM 105.3 . “I hope that we can be as innovative as Rob (Ryan) indicated to me he wanted to be, and Jerome Henderson, our secondary coach. So, hopefully we’ll get to see a lot of Jenkins.”
Jones said Jenkins, a former Pro Bowler, looked as good as ever in practice on Monday.
“He’s impressive,” Jones said. “He’s looked really good at the practices he’s been out there. He moved around good (Monday). Boy, you just don’t lose it, you can see it when one of those top ones get out there.”
