Edwards, McRoy sitting
Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville on Tuesday said keeping pace in school is the priority right now for receivers Derreck Edwards and Javares McRoy, both of whom have been out of the lineup.
McRoy, an inside receiver, has played in only one game, and Edwards, a wide receiver, didn’t travel for last week’s game at Iowa State.
“He’s having a tough time class-wise, but he’s catching up,” Tuberville said of Edwards. “He’s still with us.”
Asked about McRoy, Tuberville said, “Same thing.”
Edwards has five catches for 45 yards, eighth on the team. McRoy has one catch for 3 yards.
Starts has tests
Defensive tackle Michael Starts didn’t practice Tuesday and was having tests run related to the blood pressure issue that caused him to miss last week’s game, Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said.
