Jenkins, a first-round pick last year, was back on the field Sunday for the Cowboys' second practice of the day.
Neither Jenkins nor Terence Newman, among the team's top three cornerbacks, played in the preseason opener Thursday night. Newman sustained a slight groin strain Aug. 8, the same day Jenkins was hurt.
Linebacker Steve Octavien (groin) also returned to practice Sunday.
