OGGOA Exclusive: CB Moses Jenkins approved for medical redshirt by NCAA

One month ago, OGGOA broke exclusive news about Florida Gators junior cornerback Moses Jenkins undergoing a procedure to alleviate symptoms following complications from a concussion he suffered during the Kentucky Wildcats game earlier in the season. We also reported that Jenkins was out indefinitely as the coaching staff sought a medical redshirt for him from the NCAA.

OGGOA learned Monday afternoon that Jenkins’ medical redshirt request has finally been approved by the NCAA, allowing him to retain two years of college football eligibility. After weeks of waiting, Jenkins and his family are relieved that the redshirt request was put through. A source close to the player told OGGOA that he did not feel like his normal self until six weeks after initially suffering the injury. Fortunately, Jenkins feels much better now and is in the process of making a full recovery; he should be able to return to action in the offseason and will play a key role on special teams in 2010.

Also receiving approval for a medical redshirt this week was senior transfer wide receiver Carl Moore, who had been experiencing back pain/issues all year. Moore will have one year of eligibility left and plans to play next year for his redshirt senior season.

    I’m glad he got the red shirt and I’m glad he’s feeling better. Concussions/head injuries are scary. Thanks for the info!
