Saints Claim Former Giants Cornerback Janoris Jenkins Off Waivers

Ex-Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins was claimed on waivers Monday by the Saints, ESPN reports.
Jenkins was expected to join a playoff-bound team and will do so with the Saints, who enter Monday night’s game against the Colts at 10-3 and in first place in the NFC South.

Since New Orleans has yet to play its Week 15 game, the Jenkins claim won’t be made official until Tuesday.

The Giants waived Jenkins Friday, two days after he made an inappropriate remark to a fan on Twitter. Jenkins called a critical fan a “retard” when taking exception to questioning about why the stats Jenkins was using to showcase his effectiveness weren’t contributing to victories.

Jenkins, 31, said Thursday that the usage of the word was “slang” that is “just part of my culture.”

Giants coach Pat Shurmur met with Jenkins on Wednesday and said in a statement Friday that Jenkins’ refusal to admit that what he did was wrong led to his release.

The Saints defense couldn’t stop the 49ers in the final seconds, as San Francisco pulled out a big NFC win, 48-46 in New Orleans.

Here’s the highlights:

Two Starting Linebackers Ruled Out for the Saints Against the 49ers

The Saints have ruled out two of their starting linebackers before Sunday’s critical NFC showdown vs. the San Francisco 49ers, Mike Tripplet of ESPN reports.

Strongside linebacker A.J Klein (knee) and middle linebacker Kiko Alonso (thigh) were both injured during last Thursday’s win at Atlanta. The timing is especially unfortunate because the 49ers have the NFL’s No. 2-ranked rushing offense at 148.0 yards per game.

And because both teams are 10-2, Sunday’s game could wind up determining the NFC’s top seed and home-field advantage.

On a positive injury note, the Saints’ standout left tackle Terron Armstead is listed as questionable after he returned to practice on a limited basis all week with his ankle injury. Even if he is not ready to return yet Sunday, it’s a good sign that he will be back soon.
