“I can’t see a situation where Andrew would play in the game,” Kelly said Thursday night. “It would have to be Army (Nov. 20) or USC (Nov. 27). He needs another (week).”
Hendrix, promoted from the scout team during the bye last week, will have an active role on the sideline, Kelly said, in terms of being asked to recognize and identify different situations that Rees is going through in the game.
“You can see the athleticism of an Andrew Hendrix,” Kelly said, “but it's hard to put it all together right now, because he has a very, very shallow base of what we want to accomplish.”
Rees’ own knowledge base has been enhanced by his football family. Father Bill, for example, has been a coach and administrator on the college and pro levels for decades.
