IRVING Mike Jenkins was on the field for eight defensive snaps Sunday in Seattle. It was the 2012 debut for the Cowboys cornerback who missed the season opener, recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.
Jenkins also played on special teams, a role he's expected to continue having Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With starting safeties Barry Church and Gerald Sensabaugh nursing injuries, the Cowboys could be short at that position.
Could Jenkins fill in at safety?
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett didn't mention Jenkins' name when he gave the safety options before Wednesday's practice. But the 27-year-old sounded open to anything that will land him more playing time.
"I'm just a DB (defensive back) right now," Jenkins said. "I'm just a DB. Whatever it is, in all honesty. I played it all before."
Jenkins said he felt good against the Seahawks and that there are "no worries" regarding his shoulder.
"It felt good to get out there, get a little contact and test the shoulder out," he said. "It's good."
BEST OF MAXIM
The year was 2008. The Cowboys had finished the previous season at 13-3 but lost the Giants in the playoffs. Nevertheless, many had the Cowboys pegged as a Super Bowl contender.
The team needed a receiver, though, given that Terry Glenn had played his final game. The other receivers were a 29-year-old Patrick Crayton and a 35-year-old Terrell Owens. Miles Austin wouldn’t break...
IRVING Jason Garrett said Wednesday that Felix Jones will continue to return kickoffs for the Cowboys.
Despite Jones fumbling the opening kickoff last Sunday in Seattle and showcasing little ability to make defenders miss, the Cowboys coach defended his primary kick returner on Wednesday.

The Dallas Cowboys floundered in Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks leaving many fantasy owners disgruntled and even a bit confused. Dez Bryant and Jason Witten had shaky hands, the ground game was ineffective and Tony Romo wasn’t in sync all night long.

With Felix Jones struggling to hold on to the football during the Cowboys’ loss on Sunday, head coach Jason Garrett made it clear that taking care of the football is very important.
“Line 1 in returning the football in the NFL for me is ball security,” Garrett said.
Garrett admits they’re always looking for other guys to step up and return kicks.
“Well, we’re always looking...
This guy is really upset, I mean REALLY upset, at the Cowboys. After their 27-7 loss to the Seattle Seahawks last week, this guy felt the need to express his anger at the Cowboys via YouTube.
I knew I was going to like this video by the 0:12 mark. A few updates from the Cowboys you guys need to be made aware of:

IRVING People in both the Seattle and Dallas organizations have been informed that the vicious and illegal crackback block administered to Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee by Seahawks receiver Golden Tate will result in a 21,000 fine to Tate, sources say.
In reviewing the play from Sunday's 27-7 Seahawks win, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said to the media, "I'm sure they will...
I’m available for parties too Juan…
I’m ready for Dez Bryant to live up to the hype. Yes, the guy is a freak of nature that should be unstoppable in the Cowboys passing game. The problem is his lack of consistency and his Houdini act he pulls in games. Will this be the year he breaks out? The jury is still out.

The heroics didn't need embellishing.
When starting center Phil Costa suffered a back injury in the second quarter of the regular-season opener against the New York Giants, the Dallas Cowboys were forced into using a replacement whose arrival was so fresh he hadn't even snapped a dozen times to quarterback Tony Romo in practice.
Despite those difficult circumstances, Ryan...
