Bengals' Hendrickson clears concussion protocol
Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Trey Hendrickson has cleared concussion protocol and will play Saturday against the Tennessee Titans, head coach Zac Taylor announced Thursday, according to Ben Baby of ESPN.
Hendrickson suffered the concussion during last week's win over the Las Vegas Raiders, the Bengals' first playoff victory in 31 years. He finished the contest with one tackle and one sack.
The 27-year-old was Cincy's best pass-rusher during the regular season, leading the team with 14 sacks through 16 appearances. The Pro Bowl defender had at least 0.5 sacks in all but three games he played this campaign, including the playoffs.
Hendrickson joined the Bengals in the offseason on a four-year, $60-million contract after breaking out with 13.5 sacks for the New Orleans Saints in 2020.
