Falcons Receiver Michael Jenkins Will Miss Preseason Due To Shoulder Injury

According to the Falcons’ Jay Adams:

Falcons wide receiver Michael Jenkins will be out 4-6 weeks after injuring his shoulder during Friday’s scrimmage at North Gwinnett High School.

"You’re always concerned anytime one of your players goes down with an injury," head coach Mike Smith said Sunday night. "One thing I am certain of is Michael will work very hard with our athletic performance staff and training staff to get on the field as soon as possible."

Hopefully Jenkins will be healthy in time for the season-opening road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Falcons fans who were hoping to get a good look at newcomers Kerry Meier, Brandyn Harvey, and Ryan Wolfe and a fair reassessment of the returning Harry Douglas during the preseason — you’re going to get it. With six years of experience, Jenkins should be able to step into regular season mode without suffering greatly for lack of preseason snaps.
