We’re days away from the Divisional Round of this year’s NFL playoffs, prompting the New Orleans Saints to share their first injury report of the week before kickoff with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s too soon to say anything for certain, but it’s encouraging to note that defensive end Trey Hendrickson — who finished the regular season tied for second in the entire NFL in sacks — returned to work on a limited basis while managing his neck injury. Hopefully he earns medical clearance to suit up on Sunday.

Additionally, the Saints reported three non-participants in Wednesday’s initial practice session: cornerback Patrick Robinson (hamstring), quarterback Taysom Hill (knee), and running back Latavius Murray (quad), who has been described as day-to-day while working to return. Robinson recently returned from injured reserve with a hamstring issue, so it’s worth monitoring whether that continues to sideline him. Hill has been banged up between this knee injury and a concussion; keep an eye out for updates on his status throughout the week.
