' agent Joe Flanagan told the Washington Post that Jenkins will have surgery next week on his torn ACL which will end his season.

“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. Of all of the 12 rookies drafted in April, Jenkins was having the finest training camp and preseason, and coaches regularly spoke highly of his play.

“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.”
