Eagles DT Jenkins injures hamstring, will undergo MRI


Cullen Jenkins left this afternoon's practice early with a hamstring injury, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The defensive tackle is scheduled to undergo a magnetic resonance image this evening. Jenkins pulled up lame early in practice during a team drill. He then headed to the trainer's tent to get looked at. He came back out and joined the defensive line during individual drills, but eventually rode a cart into the locker room.

The Eagles have suffered several blows on the defensive line early in camp. Starting defensive ends Jason Babin and Trent Cole are already out with injuries. Babin has a calf strain and is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. Cole has swelling in his shoulder. There is no timetable for his return, although Eagles coach Andy Reid said it could be a day or perhaps a week.
