Janoris Jenkins was held out of practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury, but instead of doing something else productive with his time, the veteran decided to jump on Twitter and throw a horrible remark towards a fan who questioned him.
The New York Giants cornerback called a r*tard in an effort to defend his play on the field.
“I can only do my job.. r—–,” Jenkins tweeted in response to a fan criticizing his performance against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Jenkins had six combined tackles on Monday night, but he missed another after being juked by running back Boston Scott.
Head coach Pat Shurmur was asked about the tweet following Wednesday’s practice.
“I was just made aware of it as I was going through the injury report, and he shouldn’t be tweeting during practice,” Shurmur said to the reporters gathered.
Jenkins has one year remaining on his five-year, $62.5 million contract and will be a free agent following the 2020 season.
