The good news for Chiefs receiver A.J. Jenkins is that the 2012 first-round pick had as many catches last night as Dwayne Bowe.
The bad news is that Bowe had one.
The best news is that Jenkins finally has registered a reception in an NFL regular-season game.
Jenkins, who was dealt to the Chiefs for 2011 first-round receiver Jon Baldwin, caught a six-yard pass in the second quarter.
The former 49er otherwise disappeared from view, and it’ll be hard for him to do much on a roster that includes Bowe, Dexter McCluster, and the surprisingly productive Donnie Avery, who made multiple key catches — including a 15-yard catch on third and 10 that ignited the momentum-killing drive that helped the Chiefs seal their third victory of the season.
But at least Jenkins has made a catch. Baldwin stands at zero after two games in San Francisco.
