Word broke earlier this week that Bills tackle Seantrel Henderson was facing a four-game suspension for a violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy along with the news that Henderson was appealing that suspension.
It appears Henderson’s efforts fell short, however. The NFL officially announced his suspension on Friday, leaving Henderson ineligible to play against the Ravens this weekend and for the next three games.
Henderson won’t be permitted to practice with the team or visit the facility until after the suspension runs its course.ve
The specific reason for Henderson’s suspension has not been released although word this week was that it had something to do with Henderson’s treatment for Crohn’s Disease. Studies have shown marijuana helps with the disease and Henderson served multiple suspensions related to pot use while at the University of Miami.
The Bills also open the season without defensive tackle Marcell Dareus as he serves a suspension of his own. Running back Karlos Williams was suspended for four games as well, but he’ll either serve it as a free agent or with another team after getting waived by the Bills.
