The New York Giants season of 2017 continues to take hit after hit. Cornerback Janoris Jenkins may be shut down via ankle surgery.
He’s one hell of an NFL cornerback, one who, at his best, is pro bowl-caliber material. He’s also one controversial player in and around the locker room and through the eyes of the fans.
If there were two sentences to perfectly describe Janoris Jenkins, there it is.
This disastrous 2017 New York Giants season is playing out exactly the way we thought it would over the last few weeks. More losses, more drama, and even more season-ending injuries.
Jenkins, the man who unintelligently take on the New York fans, is the latest to snag that injury bug, via Adam Schefter of ESPN.
It is expected that Jackrabbit will be shut down via necessary ankle surgery on the very same ankle he’s been playing through for the last several weeks, league sources told ESPN.
The report has the injury hindering Jenkins’s ankle for the last eight weeks and on Monday, team doctors will determine his fate.
Hey, at least we won’t see him included in the “giving up parade” for the rest of this miserable season.

- Paul Schwartz of the New York Post has a source that claims Eli Apple nearly walked out of a film room session while being ripped to shreds for his on-tape play.
- Schwartz also has hall of famer Harry Carson singing the praises of linebacker B.J. Goodson.
“I’ve been talking to B.J. and I like him,’’ Carson recently told The Post. “I think he’s built a certain way, very humble, from the South. But he’s been hurt. I think he’s one of those guys that could be a really good leader, if that’s a role he chooses to do. You have to walk the walk and he has to keep things in perspective with his own life before he starts saying things to other guys.’’
