WR Michael Jenkins Hurts Shoulder During Scrimmage

Receiver Michael Jenkins appeared to injure a shoulder during a team scrimmage on Friday night. “I don’t know the extent of it, but I think we’ll know first thing in the morning,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “We’re encouraged by what we saw on the sideline there.” Jenkins, one of 11 offensive starters returning this season, fell hard to the ground on a long incompletion that Matt Ryan appeared to underthrow.

“I just kind of missed him,” Ryan said. Jenkins, a Falcons starter since 2005, stopped short of the 30-yard line and stepped upfield a couple of yards to try to catch the pass on Ryan’s play-action fake to running back Jason Snelling. Neither Smith nor Ryan indicated whether Jenkins might have run the route too deep. Jenkins arose slowly and walked gingerly to the sideline to see the trainers. “He’s the only guy we’re listing on our injury report,” Smith said.
