Cincinnati Bengals pass rusher Trey Hendrickson is awaiting MRI results on his hyperextended knee, NFL Network reported Monday.

The veteran defensive end left Sunday's 30-27 loss to Houston after Texans wide receiver Noah Brown appeared to lose his balance and fell into his left leg late in the fourth quarter.

Hendrickson, 28, leads the Bengals with 8.5 sacks to go along with 27 tackles and two forced fumbles in nine starts.

A two-time Pro Bowl selection since joining Cincinnati in 2021, Hendrickson has 50.5 sacks and 107 quarterback hits in 85 career games (56 starts) with the New Orleans Saints (2017-20) and Bengals.

Hendrickson is likely to miss at least one game with Cincinnati (5-4) facing a short week ahead of Thursday night's clash with the host Baltimore Ravens (7-3).
