The Redskins have made no secrets about their excitement for rookie defensive end Jarvis Jenkins since they made him their second-round draft pick in April. Before his injury, he was on track for major P.T. (playing time) in this year’s defense.
Now he’s on track for a different kind of P.T.: physical therapy. And he’s approached it with the same intensity.
Despite having a clean tear of his ACL in August, he said that he’s already gotten back on the elliptical and treadmill, working his way up to a decent jog. Not only is he staying in shape, but he’s also working hard to keep his weight down to aid in the rehab process.
“My knee feels good, man, I just wanna play,” he said with his same old smile. ”I gotta play, but I appreciate [the team] not rushing it.”
As a lineman, Jenkins has seen some impact injuries before. This is the first injury that has put him on the shelf for any amount of time.

Redskins safety LaRon Landry (Achilles) and three offensive linemen are questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys, Coach Mike Shanahan said.

This was a rivalry game that was too big for 60 minutes. Instead, it needed 69:21 exhibition of some of the best football that the Redskins played all year. And long after the clock struck zero, this team kept fighting.
It just wasn’t quite enough.
In the post-game locker room,...
Have The Cowboys Taken The Redskins Seriously?It seems like the second game against Washington means something big every year. Last season, Jason Garrett was trying to prove he was the man for the Head Coaching job. In 2009, it was Dallas’ ticket to the playoffs. In 2008, it was Tony Romo’s return to the field after a four-week hiatus in which a win was necessary for the Cowboys...
Washington safety LaRon Landry is out with an Achilles injury for Sunday's tilt against the Dallas Cowboys, but offensive tackle Jammal Brown should be able to play barring a late setback.
