Date: reports RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's disease) has the "green light" to play if he can add back some weight.

Henderson was "only" 306 pounds when he reported to minicamp. He needs to put on at least 20 pounds before he is ready to play, a feat unlikely to be accomplished before training camp begins. It is unlikely Henderson is ready for camp, and he could begin the season on the non-football injury list.
Jul 9 - 9:43 AM

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's disease) needs to add weight before returning to practice.

Henderson missed OTAs, but reported to minicamp this week. He's still getting back into football shape following two offseason surgeries. Henderson will have to hold off Jordan Mills when healthy.
Jun 15 - 6:27 PM

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's disease) was seen working out on an exercise bike at the start of Tuesday's minicamp.

Henderson was absent for all of OTAs, but has now rejoined the team. He missed the final five games of last season while battling Crohn's disease. When healthy, he'll compete with Jordan Mills for the starting job at right tackle.

The Buffalo News reports Bills RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's disease) plans to fly to Buffalo this week and be "ready for the '16 season."

Beat writer Ty Dunne reported earlier Monday that Henderson was "MIA," and he indeed has not been in contact with coach Rex Ryan. Henderson's agent presumably contacted Dunne and told him Henderson still plans to play this year. Per Dunne, Henderson underwent two surgeries to address his fight with Crohn's disease, one of which "reattached" Henderson's intestines. It's unclear whether Henderson will be healthy for training camp.
May 30 - 3:22 PM

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson, who is battling Crohn's disease, has been a no-show for OTAs and is considered "MIA."

The Buffalo News refers to Henderson as "off the grid." Rex Ryan hasn't spoken to Henderson since the end of last season, and "teammates haven't heard from him" and "aren't sure when or if he'll be back." The Bills have moved forward with Jordan Mills and Cyrus Kouandjio competing at right tackle. Henderson reportedly underwent surgery "a few months ago" to address his battle with Crohn's disease, which caused him to lose 20 pounds. Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel condition that can cause severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, and weight loss. David Garrard dealt with it late in his Jaguars career.
May 30 - 1:30 PM

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson's (illness) status is still uncertain.

The Bills have been mum on Henderson's status since he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease late last season. Jordan Mills filled in at right tackle for the final five games of 2015 and would be the favorite to start there again if Henderson remains sidelined.
May 20 - 4:08 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's disease) is getting better and gaining weight.

Henderson finished last season on the non-football injury list after being diagnosed with Crohn's disease, an illness which causes issues in the digestive tract. It sounds like Henderson will be able to play through the disease, but it is not a lock he is able to make it back this season. The Bills will look to add some depth at tackle.

Mar 3 - 9:09 AM

According to, it's "unclear" if RT Seantrel Henderson (illness) can "effectively continue as Buffalo’s starter moving forward."

Henderson missed the final five games of the season due to Crohn's disease. GM Doug Whaley says the Bills are "crossing our fingers and hoping (Henderson) can come back to full strength." If not, Whaley talked up Cyrus Kouandjio and restricted free agent Jordan Mills as potential replacements. Henderson previously started 26-of-27 games since being the No. 237 overall pick of the 2014 draft.
Jan 28 - 1:54 PM

Henderson is reportedly battling Crohn's disease. Jordan Mills will continue to fill in at right tackle. Henderson was among the league's least-effective right tackles before being sidelined. Signed for an affordable $600,000 next season, Henderson will be back, but perhaps not as a starter.

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson has been diagnosed with Crohn's disease and could miss the rest of the season.

Wed, Dec 16, 2015 03:37:00 PM

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson (illness) is listed as probable for Week 14.

Henderson’s return isn’t much of an upgrade. The Bills could also get RG John Miller (questionable, ankle) back this week.
Fri, Dec 11, 2015 06:32:00 PM

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson (illness) is listed as doubtful for Week 13.

Henderson plays on the side of the formation where J.J. Watt normally lines up. We'd guess Tyrod Taylor will struggle to repeat last week's production with worsened protection against an on-fire Texans defense this week.
Fri, Dec 4, 2015 01:19:00 PM

Bills coach Rex Ryan said he's "concerned" RT Seantrel Henderson (illness) will miss Sunday's game against the Texans.
