The Bills activated offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson on Monday ahead of his Henderson’s roster exemption expiring.
Safety Colt Anderson was placed on injured reserve to make room on the roster for Henderson.
Henderson was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He started 26 games at right tackle over his first two NFL seasons.
Henderson was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease last season and ended up being hospitalized and missing the last five games. He’s been on a strict diet as part of his quest to return to the field.
Anderson suffered a hand injury in Sunday’s win at Los Angeles. Anderson, a seven-year veteran, had played in two games this season as a backup safety and special teams player.
