Dallas Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins will report with rookies and injured players to start training camp Wednesday, according to a source.

Jenkins missed voluntary workouts because he was irked by a lack of progress regarding a new contract, but he did report for mandatory workouts. He hasn’t yet been medically cleared to practice as he’s still recovering from offseason shoulder surgery.

The veteran cornerback played through neck and leg injuries last season and, despite having just one interception, finished tied for the team lead with 10 pass breakups.

During the 2012 draft, the Cowboys placed Jenkins on the trade market but didn’t receive an offer to their liking. Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Jenkins is in the team’s long-term plans.

Orlando Scandrick and Carr worked with the first-team defense during offseason practices while Jenkins and Claiborne (wrist) were out with injuries. Claiborne has yet to sign his rookie contract.
