Bengals coach Zac Taylor introduced Thursday defensive finish Trey Hendrickson will play in opposition to the Titans within the divisional spherical after clearing the concussion protocol.
Hendrickson exited Cincinnati‘s win over the Raiders within the wild-card spherical with a head harm earlier than coming into the protocol. He practiced in full on Wednesday, per ESPN‘s Ben Baby.
“He is one among our premier gamers,” Taylor mentioned Thursday. “It is good to have him.”
Hendrickson, 27, is in his fifth NFL season and his first with Cincinnati. He tallied 14 sacks in 2021, including three compelled fumbles.
The Bengals received their first playoff recreation in three a long time with their wild-card spherical win over the Raiders. The franchise has not reached the Tremendous Bowl since 1988.
