Trey Hendrickson hyperextended knee, per report; status for Ravens game unknown
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Cincinnati Bengals top pass rusher Trey Hendrickson hyperextended his knee during Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Hendrickson, who has 8.5 sacks on the year, suffered the injury when Texans’ wide receiver Noah Brown fell into him.
The Cincinnati pass rusher immediately went down on the field, and it was apparent he was in a lot of pain.
Rapoport said Monday Hendrickson underwent an MRI, which confirmed the injury was a hyperextension.
The Bengals have a short week as they head to Baltimore to face the Ravens on Thursday Night Football.
During his Monday press conference, head coach Zac Taylor was asked about Hendrickson’s and wide receiver Tee Higgins’ availability for this week’s game.
He said: “We’ll see. Short week.”
Higgins missed Sunday’s game against Houston due to a hamstring injury and it seems he will be sidelined once again.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday that it is “unlikely” Higgins will play Thursday against the Ravens.
