The Bengals lost a number of defensive linemen to injury in Saturday's historic playoff win. On Sunday, head coach Zac Taylor revealed that Hendrickson entered concussion protocol. But now it appears the Pro Bowl D-end is already back on the practice field.

On Tuesday Bengals reporter Ben Baby tweeted, "Bengals DE Trey Hendrickson is here at practice." Along with a photo of the Cincy defender.

Hendrickson was a force while in the lineup on Saturday. Early in the game, he and fellow injured defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi teamed up force a Derek Carr fumble. However, after Hendrickson left the game with a concussion, the the Bengals really struggled to get home.

Adding Hendrickson back to the trenches would go a long way in helping the Bengals potentially move on to the AFC Championship. They'll be in for a tough one when they travel to Music City to face the one-seeded Titans.

In 16 games with Cincinnati, Trey Hendrickson had racked up 34 tackles, 14 sacks, 27 QB hits and three forced fumbles.
