Bills RT Seantrel Henderson Facing Another Suspension

Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News reports that Bills RT Seantrel Henderson is facing another suspension.

A league source tells Skurski that Henderson missed a practice for a doctor’s appointment that was related to his battle with Crohn’s disease.

Henderson previously served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s drug policy, which he later explained was due to the use of  medicinal marijuana to treat his disease.

“I’ve got doctors telling me this is the No. 1 medicine that would help your disease,” Henderson said last month. “You try to tell that to the league and it seems like they didn’t care too much.”

Henderson underwent a few surgeries that removed 80 centimeters of his infected intestines, so it wasn’t easy for him to work his way back onto playing field.

According to Skurski, a decision regarding Henderson’s suspension is expected to come soon but won’t happen this week.

Henderson, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bills back in 2014. He’s in the third year of his four-year, $2,270,880 rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $600,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2016, Henderson has been active for one game.

We’ll have more regarding Henderson’s suspension as the news is available.
