East Rutherford, N.J. The New York Giants have placed cornerback Janoris Jenkins on injured reserve. The Giants announced the move Wednesday, saying that Jenkins is having ankle surgery. Defensive tackle Khyri Thornton was signed and took his place on the roster for Sunday's game in Oakland. Jenkins started nine games. He missed the Sept. 18 game against Detroit with an ankle injury and the Nov. 5 game with the Los Angeles Rams because he was suspended for violating team rules. Jenkins has a team-high three interceptions, including a 43-yarder at Denver and 53-yarder last week in Washington for a touchdown. Jenkins also had 31 tackles, a team-high nine passes defensed, and forced a fumble.Read More
