Redskins defensive end Jarvis Jenkins said he’ll return to practice Monday afternoon after missing Saturday’s session with an illness.
Jenkins said he felt fine upon returning Buffalo Thursday night, but felt ill after lifting weights Friday morning. By mid afternoon, he had lost his appetite, and by evening, his temperature had spiked to 103 degrees.
“I have no idea what it was,” said Jenkins, who is returning from a right knee injury that forced him to miss the entire 2011 season. “I’m fully recovered.”
Jenkins said he could have practiced Saturday but the team didn’t want to risk it, since he had not eaten or had much to drink the previous 24 hours.
