Janoris Jenkins is back with the New York Giants and ready to play against the Dallas Cowboys.A day after hastily walking off the field to deal with an undisclosed family emergency Amari Cooper Jersey White
, Jenkins was back at practice Friday as the Giants (0-1) held their last major workout for the Sunday night game at Dallas (0-1).While Jenkins is ready to play, coach Pat Shurmur said weakside linebacker Olivier Vernon is going to miss his second straight game with an ankle injury. The Giants' top pass rusher was on the field working with trainers this week and is making progress, the coach added.Shurmur asked the media to give Jenkins space with "a family issue."Having Jenkins back is important. He is the team's best pass defender and had an interception in the 20-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend.Jenkins said everything was good with his family. He was not asked what the family problem was, nor did he discuss it when given a chance, adding he focused on football at practice."Yeah, short-term memory," Jenkins "In life things happen, just have to move forward and come back to work and pick up where I left off."Jenkins has had to deal with a lot this offseason. His brother, William H. Jenkins, was charged with aggravated manslaughter days after the body of Roosevelt Rene was found in the football player's Fair Lawn, New Jersey home on June 26.The 29-year-old Jenkins did not think missing a day of practice would hurt his performance against the Cowboys."Situation like that, some things happen, but no Womens Michael Gallup Jersey
, not really," Jenkins said. "Just come back and focus back on football and continue to go."Safety Landon Collins said the players knew what was happening when Jenkins left the field Thursday."Like we always say, we have family to take care of first, our brothers first and our family," Collins said. "That is always going to come first."In past years, Jenkins tended to cover star receiver Dez Bryant when the Giants played the Cowboys. Bryant was let go after last season, so the Cowboys now feature Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns, Terrance Williams and Deonte Thompson as the top wideouts."Yeah, it looks weird," Jenkins said. "We got to prepare the way we always prepare. Expect the unexpected and just play football. We understand that they got a good running game and they're trying to pick it up in the passing game ..."With Dallas using a lot of three-wideout formations, the Giants probably will be using extra defensive backs. B.W. Webb and Michael Thomas got most of the work at nickel back in the opener. If the defense wants more man-to-man coverage, Donte Deayon is probably the third-best coverage guy behind Jenkins and fellow cornerback Eli Apple.NOTES: LB Tae Davis is questionable for the game with a hamstring injury. He missed the season opener and was limited at practice Friday. ... Shurmur plans to watch a little football Sunday before heading to the stadium. "I'm a football fan Demarcus Lawrence Jersey
, so when there's a game on I try to watch it, if I can stay awake." ... The Giants signed T Brian Mihalik to their practice squad and released LB Calvin Munson. Two vets, on one football team, who will have the bigger impact?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsDallas Cowboys GeneralBigger impact for the Cowboys in 2019, Jason Witten or Randall Cobb?New,101commentsTwo vets, on one football team, who will have the bigger impact?CDTShareTweetShareShareBigger impact for the Cowboys in 2019, Jason Witten or Randall Cobb?Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsDuring free agency, the Cowboys reeled in two receiving veterans. One is a legendary Cowboys tight end who is returning after a year in the broadcast booth. The other is from a rival team who played with one of the greatest quarterbacks of this generation. Jason Witten and Randall Cobb will now line up for the Cowboys and will do most of their work over the middle of the field. Witten is famous for the Y-option and has a long history in this Cowboys offense and a couple of years experience playing with Dak Prescott. Randall Cobb has done amazing work turning short catches into long plays and should step into the starting slot role. At the end of the year, which player will have had the greater impact?There are pros and cons for both. Let’s first look at it from a statistical basis.In the last two years that Jason Witten played, he averaged 66 receptions, 617 yards and four touchdowns per season.In the last two years* that Randall Cobb played Womens Dak Prescott Jersey
, he averaged 63 receptions, 632 yards and four touchdowns per season. *We used the 2016, 2017 seasons for Cobb since 2018 was washed out by injury.As you can see, their statistical output is pretty even, and both players have been on a decline in output for a while. Cobb actually does better on a per game basis because while Witten’s stats are for a full 16 game season in each of those two years, Cobb only played in 15 and 13 games those two years. Durability is a part of the argument as we head into the pros and cons of each.Pros and Cons for WittenPros - Jason Witten is durable. He’s famously only missed one game in his entire career. He also has past experience with Dak Prescott to rely on, and he is fully versed in the Cowboys offense. There will be no learning curve for him going into the 2019 season. Even though he’s slowed down considerably, he is still very capable of finding the soft spots in the coverage and providing a security blanket for Prescott. He will also add some punch as a blocker in the run game.Cons - The Cowboys have said they are going to try and limit his snaps. He will be competing with younger tight ends who the Cowboys will want to get into the mix so they can further evaluate them. Witten is coming off a year of not playing football and at his age the rust could really show. He is not going to provide any real YAC past the initial catch of the ball.Pros and Cons for CobbPros - He is more explosive than Witten and can turn a short catch into a big gain. As the new slot receiver he should get plenty of targets (Beasley got 87 last year). Cobb’s game is more varied, the Cowboys could use him in a variety of ways, including on screens or handing him the ball on occasion.Cons - Cobb hasn't played a full season since 2015 and last year only managed to play half the games. His numbers could be inflated by playing with Aaron Rodgers and more of a passing offense than he will see in Dallas. He will be learning a new offense and a new quarterback which could slow his early production. The Cowboys have some other top quality receivers on offense to take some of his opportunities.Over to you BTB. Which player will have a bigger impact on the 2019 season?
