Positive injury update on Trey Hendrickson

Will the Bengals have Hendrickson in Week 16?

The Cincinnati Bengals just keep winning, but they also keep losing key players to injury.

The latest is veteran defensive end Sam Hubbard, who injured his calf in Sunday’s win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It reportedly could sideline him for multiple weeks, if not the rest of the regular season.

Thankfully, it sounds like fellow defensive end Trey Hendrickson could make his return this week after breaking his wrist in Week 14. Paul Dehner of The Athletic broke the news Tuesday.

With Hendrickson out and then Hubbard getting hurt, the Bengals were down to Joseph Ossai and Cam Sample on the edge for most of the second half vs. Tampa Bay. That will continue this week vs. the New England Patriots unless Hendrickson makes an unexpected return. He was initially expected to miss multiple games after breaking his wrist in the win over the Cleveland Browns.

Even if Hendrickson does play this week, look for the Bengals to have another defensive end on the gameday roster, likely in the form of a practice squad call-up.
