Anpther hamstring injury to a Dallas CB?

How will they deal with the injury to Mike Jenkins?

Jenkins’ performance this season has gone largely unnoticed.  It seems a bit unfair that everyone was talking about how bad he was last year, but very few are acknowledging that Jenkins has played very well, possibly even excellent, so far this year.  It will not be easy to replace a player of his caliber. The good news is that Scandrick is also playing extremely well, and he has stepped in and played as a starter already this season.  Perhaps the most telling indication of Scandrick’s impressive play this season is that none of the hyper-critical fans have suggested he was overpaid by his new contract.

With Scandrick starting in place of Jenkins, expect to see a lot more of Frank Walker and Alan Ball.  Walker has played fairly well in coverage this year; Ball, well, he hasn’t been burned that often.

I will be watching to see if Scandrick, the slot corner, continues to man the slot, or whether he stays outside when the Hawks go to 3 WR formations.  It would not surprise me to see Walker or Ball out wide and Scandrick in the slot on Doug Baldwin.
