I was listening to the WCAC podcast on the site earlier and they mentioned Jelani Jenkins was out of the league right now. He was with Miami, Oakland a brief stint with Buffalo. Anyone know what's going on with him injury wise?

I'm guessing he's just not healthy right now. 

It's funny. Out of all the high school football players to come through the past 10-15 years, I would have guessed that Kenny Tate and Jelani Jenkins would be the two guys you could pencil in as having great NFL careers. It's funny that players like Johnson Bademosi, Rodney McLeod and even Brandon Coleman will end up having better careers in the NFL. I'm sure I'm missing a few others too.

I Agree

The NFL is a very difficult entity to predict success.  Injuries play a huge part, but team needs and timing are just as crucial.  Jenkins had a good run, any way you slice it though.  He made the WCAC proud just for making it.
