Jerry Jones: We have Jenkins’ medical records
ARLINGTON, Texas — Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones denied a report Thursday that cornerback Mike Jenkins has not shared enough of his medical records with the team.
Athletic trainer Jim Maurer “has everything he
needs. We have all the medical records we need and are
continuing to get medical information,” Jones said when asked about the NFL.com report that the team is lacking Jenkins’ records.
The 27-year-old underwent surgery on his right shoulder in January and has been rehabilitating at home in Florida before the team’s mandatory minicamp this week.
With minicamp having concluded and training camp not taking place until late July, the Cowboys would like Jenkins to continue his rehabilitation at the team’s Valley Ranch practice facility instead of rin Florida.
The Dallas Morning News reported Thursday that Jenkins is headed back to his home state but will be attend the Cowboys’ training camp in Oxnard, Calif.
“What I’ve gotten from Jenkins and his representatives is that Mike will be at all things that he’s supposed to be at,” Jones said.
