Cardinals CB questions amplified by loss of Mike Jenkins

BY foxsports • August 29, 2016

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Cardinals lost another preseason game, but more significantly, lost one of the three players who were vying to start at cornerback opposite All-Pro Patrick Peterson.

That position is the only one on either the Arizona offense or defense to be unsettled, and on Monday it was down to rookie Brandon Williams against rusty Justin Bethel.

The other player in the mix, Mike Jenkins, is out for the season after tearing an ACL in the Cardinals' 31-24 loss at Houston on Sunday. Signed as a free agent, Jenkins got off to a slow start in training camp after breaking a bone in his right hand and was playing with his cast when a non-contact injury to his right knee ended his season before it really began.
