Hendershot suspended from team activities

Peyton Hendershot has been suspended from all team activities,  Indiana football announced Monday.

The redshirt sophomore tight end was arrested late Saturday night on multiple charges stemming from an incident with his ex-girlfriend. The preliminary charges included felony residential entry, as well as misdemeanor domestic battery, criminal conversion, and criminal mischief.

Hendershot was placed in a mandatory hold at Monroe County Jail for 24 hours because of the domestic battery charge. He has since made bail, and the prosecutor’s office is expected to officially file charges later this week, according to Monroe County Deputy Prosecutor Jeff Kehr.

The football program’s statement Monday said IU coach Tom Allen has suspended Hendershot “immediately and indefinitely.”

“(Allen) will continue to evaluate the situation pending further developments,” the statement said.

The 6-foot-4, 255-pound pass-catcher is coming off of a breakout campaign where he set the program’s yardage and receptions records for a tight end, hauling in 52 passes for 622 yards and four touchdowns. He was a third-team All-Big Ten selection.
