“Obviously disappointed, but doing pretty well,” Flanagan said of Jenkins’ spirits when reached Friday evening. “He’s obviously done for the season and will be placed on IR whenever is the appropriate time for the Redskins. He’ll probably have surgery next week. Right now the trainers are working to get the swelling down, and thankfully, the swelling isn’t too bad.”
Jenkins on Thursday made his second straight start at right left end and was expected to play a key role in Washington’s upgraded 3-4 defensive front.

“Obviously he was having a great preseason. I’m biased, but I think he was doing fantastic and was on the fast track to starting as a rookie,” Flanagan said. “Any of the coaches would tell you that they were pleased with him. I don’t think this changes the long-term potential that he has to offer the Washington Redskins.”
