John Jenkins (thumb) will miss several weeks

Chicago Bears veteran DT John Jenkins suffered a ligament tear in his thumb Sunday against the Giants and will miss several weeks.

Fantasy Impact

Jenkins is part of a defense that has been top 12 in fantasy so far, but this is a big blow to a Chicago team that has been stingy against the run. Jenkins is a likely candidate for short-term IR. Fantasy managers should still be starting the Bears D/ST in all formats.

John Jenkins signs with Giants

The Giants signed veteran defensive lineman John Jenkins on Tuesday. Outside linebacker Romeo Okwara was released in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Impact

Jenkins adds much needed defensive line depth after both A.J. Francis and Robert Thomas were released during the team’s initial wave of cuts over the weekend. Jenkins has appeared in 59 career games (23 starts) with the Saints, Seahawks, and most recently, the Bears.
