The Georgia senior outside linebacker is hoping to play more Saturday against Kentucky.
“It’s up to me to prove to the coaches this week that I’m healthy and I can play more soundly than I tried doing last week,” he said.
Jenkins started strong this season, with a career-high 11 tackles, including five and a half for loss with two sacks against Vanderbilt but the injury has clouded his senior season.
“It’s definitely very frustrating, but at the same time I always treat it as a learning experience,” Jenkins said. “You never know how long you have to play the game of football. I’m lucky that my injury wasn’t as serious as other people.”
Jenkins still leads the team with eight and a half tackles for loss and is second with three sacks.
He has 32 tackles, including three against Florida.
