Jenkins appeared to have injured his hamstring during a team drill, and was then evaluated by the Eagles' trainers, The Philadelphia Inquirer said.

The defensive tackle later returned to training camp practice during individual drills but later had to be carted off the field, according to the newspaper.

While the severity of Jenkins' injury isn't immediately known, it could be the latest setback to the Eagles' defense.

Starting defensive ends Jason Babin and Trent Cole are both sidelined with injuries. Babin is out up to three weeks with a calf strain, and Cole has a swollen shoulder that could keep him out up to a week.

Jenkins, who's entering his ninth season, registered 40 tackles and 5.5 sacks last season with the Eagles, his first in Philadelphia. Jenkins played from 2004 to 2010 with the Green Bay Packers.
