The Oakland Raiders have signed cornerback Mike Jenkins to a free-agent contract. General manager Reggie McKenzie announced the deal Tuesday.
Pittsburgh Steelers guard David DeCastro will make his regular season debut Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.
Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins has been fined $7,875 for pushing Pierre Garcon to the ground well after the Washington receiver crossed the goal line on a touchdown last week.
The safety valve for the Dallas Cowboys defense could be Brandon Carr, their $50 million cornerback, and still having Mike Jenkins on the roster.
Jenkins was examined by Dr. Andrews earlier this month and did not get clearance. But at this point, it seems the consideration of the PUP list (which would mean a six-week sitting-out stint) is lessened.
Coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday that Jenkins will continue his rehab and then see Dr. James Andrews for another checkup in “a couple more weeks.”
So far so good for kicker Dan Bailey. Without any legit competition in camp, he’s only missed one field goal (out of about 20) through 8 days of camp.

Jenkins skipped voluntary workouts in Texas this summer, instead doing his rehab work at home in Florida after his surgery.
“He needs to get well and get through rehab, but he’s aligned right with everything I’m aligned with…that the Cowboys are aligned with ” said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
After skipping voluntary workouts this offseason, Jenkins rejoined the team Tuesday for the start of a mandatory veteran minicamp.
Jerry Jones says he has no interest in going to federal court to seek relief after an arbitrator upheld the NFL’s salary cap reductions against the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins.
