Saints | John Jenkins receives praise

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 09:51:34 -0700

New Orleans Saints DT John Jenkins received praise from defensive line coach Bill Johnson for turning his game around in Week 5. "John, you know, missed a lot of training camp ... and he was limited even in the first week of the season. So we played him in the second week, but I thought he played probably one of his worst games he had played against Cleveland. So we let him sit down another week or so," Johnson said. "But I thought (this past Sunday) he looked more like his old self. I thought he looked quicker. I thought he played strong at the point of attack. And it looks to me like he's finally got the number of reps it takes for a big man like that to play. "I just thought he got behind during the preseason ... and I thought the last two weeks he really got better."
