Bills haven’t heard from Seantrel Henderson since season ended

As if the Bills didn’t have enough issues with the players who have shown up for offseason workouts, they apparently have one lingering issue with a player who hasn’t.

Via Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News, the Bills have heard nothing from right tackle Seantrel Henderson since the 2015 season ended.

Henderson, the starting right tackle in 2014 and most of 2015, missed the last five games of the season due to Crohn’s disease.  Per Scull, Henderson had surgery “a few months ago” for the condition. One source told Dunne that “nobody knows” whether Henderson will even be on the team in 2016.

Jordan Mills and Cyrus Kouandjio are the primary candidates to replace Henderson, if he doesn’t return to the team.

Crohn’s disease has a wide range of symptoms, consequences, and complications. Plenty of people have it and rarely suffer through any significant issues. Plenty also struggle with it, constantly. While the article notes that a team source questioned Henderson’s work ethic, with a reference to past marijuana issues, it’s entirely possible that Henderson is simply focused on his health — and that he chooses not to make his situation any more public than it needs to be.

  1. Drafting Henderson was a gamble even without the health issues. Once he began to play, he looked like a steal. Now it seems Crohn’s will undo all of that. Hope he gets healthy and is back into the O-Line mix.

    How did you ever manage to cultivate that comment based on this article?

  3. That’s interesting as Rex said in one of the videos on buffalobills.com that while he hasn’t talked to Santrel, he has been in the building a few times with others since the end of the season. I wonder what the truth really is?!

  4. Very odd. Tyler Dunne of the very same newspaper said he recently talked to Henderson’s agent and the player will be in Buffalo the first week of June.
    Apparently we have that old left hand-right hand communication problem here.

  5. … haven’t heard from him since the season ended …

    Wish we could say the same about Rex-Rob.

    Meanwhile, we wish Seantrel the best with his health.

  6. headline states: “Bills haven’t heard from Seantrel Henderson since season ended”

    nice of the Bills to keep close contact with one of their players dealing with a serious health problem ….

    that level of support or lack thereof (if true) should be embarrassing to that organization from the top down.

  7. Limited understanding of Crohn’s, surgery might have meant a resection of his large intestine/colon. Serious stuff. Hope he’s recovering well, and hope he doesn’t have to be on immunosuppressants for the rest of his life.

    _____________________________________

    The organization has been in contact. The quote is misrepresented. Rex Ryan said he hadnt personally spoken with Henderson since the season ended. That doesnt mean that NOBODY has spoken with him, just that the HC hasnt.

    The other half of the story is that Hendersons agent says he will be at practice starting this week.

  9. Crohn’s is brutal. It is painful and causes nausea ….we all would smoke
    weed if we needed to ease the nausea and pain.
    The NFL needs a new marijuana policy!

  10. You hope he can come back and play ok-like Matt Light with the patriots.

    On the flip side you had someone like Dajuan Wagner that played in the nba–I believe it took a long time for him to get a proper diagnosis (ulcerative colitis-similar but different disease).

    By then he had moved on from Cleveland onto Golden State but seems like no team wanted to sign him to a contract over his health issues.

    Hopefully Henderson gets a fair shake from the league.
