The New Orleans Saints are getting healthy at the right time. Trey Hendrickson, who missed last week's game against the Chicago Bears, appears on track to play on Sunday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This is a huge development for the Saints' pass-rushing unit.

Though he's not a household name like Cameron Jordan, Hendrickson was arguably the team's most productive pass-rusher this season. His 13.5 sacks led the team, with no one else even reaching 8.0 on the year. Notably, Hendrickson reached that mark in just 15 appearances.

More importantly, Hendrickson was at his best against Tampa Bay. In two appearances against the team, he racked up 3.0 sacks and 4 QB hits.

Having Hendrickson back should give New Orleans' pass-rush a huge boost against Tom Brady and the Bucs.
