Jenkins suffered the injury on the opening drive of the Saints' Week 17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was injured while bringing down Bucs running back LaGarrette Blount on the sideline at the end of a 16-yard run. Jenkins immediately grabbed his knee after the play, then was replaced by Darren Sharper.
Jenkins had 64 total tackles and two interceptions during the regular season.
New Orleans has a long list of players listed as probable, including defensive end Alex Brown (shoulder), wide receiver Marques Colston (knee), linebacker Anthony Waters (ankle) and tight ends Jeremy Shockey (groin) and David Thomas (knee), all full participants in Friday's practice.
