Cornerback Mike Jenkins’ inexperience in the slot showed at times against the Eagles, but overall he did a good job, coach Jason Garrett said.
“There are a couple situations where he hadn’t run the particular coverage against what they were doing and his reactions weren’t quite as quick as what you’d like them to be,” Garrett said. “But he’s a god football player. He’s playing hard. He’s trying to learn that spot as well as he can as quickly as he can.
Jenkins made one tackle, playing 42 plays in the start in place of Orlando Scandrick. Garrett was asked if Jenkins perhaps erred in passing receivers off in coverage.
“I don’t want to get into the specifics of it because there were so many different conditions on that stuff, but in general, he did a really good job in the game, but there were a couple times where he wasn’t quite familiar with what you needed to do in that particular case,” Garrett said.
