Falcons: Jenkins doesn't need surgery

August, 9, 2010 11:37AM By Pat Yasinskas

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith talked after Monday mornings joint practice with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the main topic was the shoulder injury to wide receiver Michael Jenkins.

Smith said the injury happened when Jenkins landed awkwardly on his shoulder in Friday nights team scrimmage. Smith wouldnt elaborate on the exact nature of the injury, but was adamant a report that surgery would be required was inaccurate. Smith said rest and rehabilitation should heal Jenkins shoulder.

Smith stayed with the time frame of four to six weeks that the team first announced Sunday night. Smith said that should mean more first-team opportunities for Harry Douglas and Eric Weems when the Falcons open their preseason schedule at home Friday night with Kansas City. Smith also said rookie Kerry Meier probably will move higher in the rotation.

The time frame the Falcons are providing puts Jenkins estimated return somewhere close to the regular-season opener with Pittsburgh. The Falcons arent going to get more specific than that because they need to see how Jenkins responds to surgery.

But fellow starting receiver Roddy White said he expects Jenkins to be back for the start of the season.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith talked after Monday morning’s joint practice with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the main topic was the shoulder injury to wide receiver Michael Jenkins.

Smith said the injury happened when Jenkins landed awkwardly on his shoulder in Friday night’s team scrimmage. Smith wouldn’t elaborate on the exact nature of the injury, but was adamant a report that surgery would be required was inaccurate. Smith said rest and rehabilitation should heal Jenkins’ shoulder.

It sure was. I noticed the same thing after I posted the original article and made an add reply post to that affect. However, I saw that you beat me to it, so I deleted my add reply post.

Now we really don't need to look at the topic of the article...the real thing we need to look at is that he said HD, Weems, and Meier will move up the roster.

He didn't say Finneran or some other guy.

Could this mean that Weems and Meier are above Finneran?

I really think Weems is the 4th Wr right now

Today's Rapid Reports states that Smitty did mention Finneran by name to get more reps as follows:

..."11:08 am With WR Michael Jenkins missing the next 4-to-6 weeks, coach Mike Smith said WRs Harry Douglas, Eric Weems and Brian Finneran should receive more reps. He also said Finneran and Weems will see a lot of plays against Kansas City this Friday."
