Former Alabama State standout Greg Jenkins scores first career TD for Oakland Raiders

DALLAS, Texas  -- Former Alabama State quarterback Greg Jenkins scored his first career NFL touchdown on the game's first play for the Oakland Raiders against the Dallas Cowboys.

On the opening kickoff, Dallas' Terrance Williams fumbled. Jenkins, who was added to the active roster less than a week ago and was playing in his second career NFL game, scooped up the fumble and scored from 23 yards out.

The game was nationally televised in front of an afternoon Thanksgiving audience on CBS.

Jenkins, a Dade City, Fla., native who redshirted at Troy for one semester before transferring to Jacksonville State, is listed as a receiver for the Raiders, but is making his mark on special teams coverage and as a punt returner.
