NASHVILLE – Not all the Tennessee Titans got healthy during last week’s open date in the schedule.
Cornerback Jackrabbit Jenkins was among the five players who did not practice Wednesday when preparations began for Sunday’s contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Nissan Stadium.
Jenkins sustained an ankle injury early in the fourth quarter of the Week 12 loss at New England and did not return to that contest. A week without a game was not enough time to get him up and running again.
Two of the other four who were unable to practice – tight end Tommy Hudson and defensive lineman Teair Tart – also have ankle issues.
Jenkins, who turned 33 in October, played nearly every defensive snap through the first 10 games. He missed the Week 11 loss to Houston with a chest injury that arose during the week and caused him to sit out practices on Thursday and Friday.
He is one of three players on defense (safety Kevin Byard and outside linebacker Harold Landry are the others) to have logged more than 700 snaps so far this season. Jenkins is fifth on the team in tackles with 46 and has four passes defensed with one forced fumble.
In all, Tennessee listed 13 players on the week’s first injury report. Six were full participants, and five of those six did not play against New England.
