49ers add CB Janoris Jenkins to practice squad

The 49ers on Monday announced the addition of veteran cornerback Janoris Jenkins to their practice squad.

Jenkins, a 2012 second-round pick of the Rams, has played in 142 games with 138 starts in his career. He has 27 interceptions and 124 pass breakups.

Last season Jenkins started 13 of the 14 games he played for the Titans. Tennessee let him go in March of this year. They were the fourth team to employ Jenkins, who also spent time with the Rams, Giants and Saints.

The 49ers are likely hopeful they won’t have to turn to Jenkins, but they could use some in-house veteran depth in the secondary, and Jenkins was a starter for the No. 1 seed in the AFC just last season.
