Tech coaches are committed to redshirting safety Payton Hendrix. The freshman from Dallas Bishop Dunne couldn’t have helped Saturday even if the Red Raiders needed him to with their shallow pool of safeties.
Hendrix’s position coach, Trey Haverty, said he’s sidelined with a groin injury.
“Not that we’d pull a redshirt this late,” Haverty said. “You’ve got to look at what’s best for the program and decide. Right now, we couldn’t even play him if we wanted to, but he’ll be back in the next couple of weeks.”
