  • Is Eli Manning in danger of being benched?

New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins has been reinstated from his indefinite suspension after serving a one-week ban for a violation of team rules, the club announced Tuesday.

Jenkins didn't report to the team's practice October 30 and was suspended indefinitely the next day.

The Giants logged their seventh loss of the campaign Sunday afternoon, a 51-17 shellacking at the hands of the Los Angeles Rams in the Meadowlands. Jenkins failed to notify the Giants of his whereabouts and thus was suspended by Ben McAdoo.

Manning has started 207 consecutive regular-season games for the Giants and is one start shy of tying his brother Peyton for second on the all-time list.

The Giants also re-acquired linebacker Deontae Skinner, who was waived earlier this season but was lost recently on the Oakland Raiders practice squad. They waived defensive end Jordan Williams and defensive back Tim Scott - both signed last week off the practice squad - and put linebacker Nigel Harris on injured reserve with an injury to his ribs.

In six games this season, Jenkins has 24 tackles (2 solo) with 6 pass deflections, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble, and 1 defensive touchdown.
