Agent says Seantrel Henderson will be in Buffalo Tuesday

Tackle Seantrel Henderson hasn’t been around the Bills this offseason, but his agent Alan Herman says that will change on Tuesday.

Herman spoke to Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News in the wake of a report that the Bills didn’t know where Henderson was and haven’t heard from him since the end of last season. Per Herman, Henderson has been recovering from surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota about a month ago that was part of treatment for Crohn’s Disease.

Herman added that the Bills medical staff is aware that Henderson had this surgery and another operation that was required to “remove all infected areas and reattach his intestines” after serious stomach issues last season.

“Crohn’s disease is no minor condition,” Herman said. “It has to be treated properly. … He had the surgery and had to wear a bag for a number of months after that, which is no walk in the park. And he stayed close to Minnesota to make sure he was getting the right kind of treatment. Then, they basically took the bag out about a month ago. Everything is OK now to the point where once he had the second surgery and was in the hospital for three days, he’s been cleared to do whatever he wants.”

Herman said his client has spoken to some teammates, but that no members of the coaching staff have been in touch. They’ll get a chance to catch up this week, it seems, as Henderson returns to compete for the right tackle job with Jordan Mills and Cyrus Kouandjio.

  1. So, it wasn’t bad enough that the Bills management and coaching staff put the guy on disregard when he was having a rather serious surgery, but they feel the need to leak the notion that the player is somehow at fault… Classy organization showing their “family” support system… yikes.

  2. What kind of coaching staff doesn’t reach out to one of its players to see if they’re doing ok while fighting a serious health issue?

  3. Boy are the bills going to be a lousy team this year. Arrogant, self absorbed coaching, no identify on either side of the ball. Pile on the armature way things are run leads to apathy amongst players and ultimately a below average product on the field. The honeymoon is over for Rex.

  4. Don’t be angry at the Bills. They were all busy putting their feet in their mouths while giving interviews.

  5. Every other day there is new evidence that one might do well to never work for the people running this team. Start with Whaley and Brandon, but Ryan is catching up.

  6. I just hope the man gets healthy enough to continue his career. Be well, Seantrel.

  7. Good to hear he’s doing better but why wouldn’t he notify the coaching staff and medical team BEFORE he had the surgery not after? If I’m paying a guy a ton of money and he is having health issues, I would want my team dr to be in the loop on whats going on….Buffalo is a mess, first their #1 WR had surgery on his broken foot and had pins and screws inserted, then the 1st round pick injured his shoulder and had surgery on it, followed by them not allowing reporters to write about the action at OTA, then the two Ryan boys are making excuses and pulling on superman’s cap again and now this……can’t wait to see what happens next week

  8. Of all the things to bash the Bills for this isn’t one of them. They probably played dumb as not to expose the information of his medical condition and recent surgery. Not to mention the previous story stating that they hadn’t had contact was “a source” no name of course.

    Get well kid. Men from The U bounce back fast. This kid was looking like a steal let’s hope he comes back and keeps getting better.

    No identity on either side of the ball? Right, because they weren’t, ya know, NUMBER ONE in the league in rushing last year or anything.

    And of all the things you can associate with a Rex Ryan defense, lack of identity is not one of them. His defense has a had a pretty clear identity for about 15 years now. Keep trying though, bud.

  10. Hippa laws are pretty clear on what you can and cannot disclose. Better to say nothing than risk being in trouble. It is better for the kid. He probably didnt want his coach relating his issues to the media. People love to hate Rex Ryan.

  11. At least this is a positive story about SeanT coming back versus another story about Brady / Pats. No real fan cares about lawyers / judges / lawsuits or debates about what Roger says.

    Go Bills and get well SeanT.

    It’s common knowledge Rex Ryan is a terrible coach, the Bills have zero identity and the Bills Suck.

    Keep trying there, bud.

  13. I have known people who slowly died from that disease. It is terrible. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. I hope Seantrel has a full recovery.

    ————-

    Right now their “Identity” is that he took the #4 defense and turned it into the #24 defense….

    Wide right…..again…..bud.

  15. The current coaching staff is completely self absorbed. Still a talented roster which will underperformed again because of the Ryan brothers insecure need to hog the spotlight.

  16. Tell me how anyone whose job depends on eating massive amounts of food to stay at or above 300 lbs, can possibly function as an O-Lineman in the NFL. Maybe there is some miracle cure to be had but seems to me this is about the worst condition this guy could have given how he makes his living.

  17. At least this is a positive story about SeanT coming back versus another story about Brady / Pats. No real fan cares about lawyers / judges / lawsuits or debates about what Roger says.

    Go Bills and get well SeanT.

    Hate to break it to you, but no real fans care about the Buffalo Bills either. They have been irrelevant since the early 90s, and show no signs of becoming relevant in the near future.

    LOL! But PLEASE tell me all about the Chiefs’ identity under fat Andy Reid. Is it “destined to lose in 1st round of playoffs every year”? Is it “Wasting a good defense by pairing it with Alex Smith”? Keep dwelling on that title from 47 years ago, bud.

  19. Keep dwelling on that title from 47 years ago, bud.

    —————————————————

    Not a great defense. We only have a couple AFL championships from 50 years ago. Also, I’d take Reid over Ryan at coach any day.

  20. Wrecks and his brother Slob are two Buffoons that have not won anything but they blame everyone else for their failures. And not to have won anything, they sure have lots of mouth. But this goes to show that they don’t care anything about the players.
