With all the injuries and ailments this season, the Warriors have done a good job resisting the urge to activate players who are set to redshirt.
The depth-challenged offensive line probably could use Micah Vanterpool and Emil Graves. But to protect their futures, they remain on redshirt status. The same is true for defensive tackle Anthony Mermea, rover Justice Augafa and tight end Karson Greeley. Paul Scott, who had been injured most of the season, also has maintained his redshirt eligibility.
Last year, Kalen Hicks was activated at mid-season and played in four games before suffering a knee injury. Because of when he was activated, he was not eligible for a medical redshirt. Hicks, a key member of the defense, still has three years to play two more seasons.
