6'4'' / 254 lbs
Three TDs in first NFL season
Hendershot (hamstring) caught 11 of 16 targets for 103 yards and two touchdowns over 17 regular-season games in 2022. He also added a two-yard rushing TD on his only carry.
An undrafted rookie out of Indiana, Hendershot impressed in training camp and won the No. 3 spot on the tight end depth chart to begin the season, a role that wound up leading to some fantasy value thanks to his nose for the end zone, even if he didn't see more than one target in any game after the Cowboys' Week 9 bye. Dalton Schultz is a free agent this offseason, and if he heads elsewhere, Hendershot could see a much more significant role in the Dallas offense in 2023, though he'd likely still be behind 2022 fourth-round pick Jake Ferguson.

Hendershot (hamstring) is inactive Sunday against the 49ers, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Hendershot wasn't added to the team's injury report until Saturday. He suffered an injury in Monday's win over the Buccaneers, which at the time was described as a hip or groin issue and will force him out for the divisional round. In his absence, Sean McKeon will likely see a small uptick in opportunities against San Francisco.
Questionable for Sunday
Hendershot (hamstring) was added to the injury report and is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the 49ers, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The third-string tight end was hampered by a groin injury in the playoff win over the Buccaneers, but he still played his customary limited offensive snaps. Expect more of the same in a pivotal match against the 49ers.
Back on the field Monday
Hendershot (groin) returned to Monday's wild-card game against the Buccaneers, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports
Hendershot was forced out with a hip injury sustained at some point during the first quarter. However, the rookie tight end was able to quickly return for Dallas' first offensive series of the second quarter. Hendershot should continue to play a majority of special-teams snaps while providing depth behind top tight ends Dalton Schultz and Jake Ferguson.
Exits versus Tampa Bay
Hendershot is questionable to return to Monday's playoff game against the Buccaneers with a thigh injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Hendershot was deemed questionable to return midway through the first quarter, so it's likely this injury occurred early during Monday's contest. The 23-year-old tight end has logged four targets over the Cowboys' past nine games, and his absence should leave Sean McKeon to take on a bigger role behind Dalton Schultz and Jake Ferguson for the time being.
