"It saddens me to say that as of today, my football playing days have come to an end," Hendren said in a statement accompanying the post. "I've been medically disqualified from playing football as a result of the number of concussions I've had, and the risk associated with continuing playing after those head injuries."

Hendren appeared in 11 games as a redshirt freshman last season, making two starts at right tackle.
