New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins had to shut off his phone during his team's 41-36 playoff defeat at Seattle last month.

It was bad enough that Jenkins had to watch from home because of a dislocated kneecap he suffered in the regular-season finale against Tampa Bay. But he felt worse as he saw his teammates in the defensive backfield struggle through their shakiest performance of the past two seasons.
