Bills RT Seantrel Henderson is facing a four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Henderson tested positive for marijuana. Henderson is overcoming Crohn's disease, and marijuana is a common pain reliever. Due to the tricky nature of this one, it's possible Henderson's ban could be overturned, but we doubt it. He's appealing it.
Sep 7 - 10:41 AM

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's disease) returned to full practice on Tuesday.

Coach Rex Ryan called it a "big step," but admitted he wasn't sure if Henderson would be ready for Sunday's opener in Baltimore. Henderson has spent most of the offseason trying to gain back all the weight he lost during his bout with Crohn's disease. If Henderson can't go Sunday, Jordan Mills would start in his place.
Sep 6 - 11:12 AM

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reports Bills RT Seantrel Henderson has gained back most of the weight he lost fighting Crohn's disease.

Henderson was activated off the active/NFI list Monday and returned to practice for the first time since being diagnosed last December. "Early on, I had some of those doubts," Henderson said of his recovery. "I didn't know exactly what the future had set for me. I just kept doing everything that the doctor said, eating right and just moving forward getting back ready to on the field." Now at least near his playing weight, Henderson will battle Jordan Mills for the starting right tackle job.

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's) was activated from the active/NFI list Monday.

Henderson was expected to open the season on the NFI list after losing significant weight while battling Crohn's disease over the offseason. He has apparently put enough weight back on to practice, however, and could possibly push for a return to the starting lineup. Jordan Mills has worked as the first-team right tackle with Henderson sidelined.

WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia expects RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's disease) to open the season on reserve/NFI.

Henderson got in conditioning work at OTAs, but has yet to be cleared two weeks into training camp. He remains without a set timetable to return. Henderson's status should allow Jordan Mills to be Buffalo's Week 1 starter.
Aug 13 - 2:35 PM

Bills placed RT Seantrel Henderson on the active/non-football illness list.

Henderson lost significant weight this offseason while battling Crohn's disease and apparently hasn't gained enough back to begin playing. With Henderson out, Jordan Mills will open camp as Buffalo's starting right tackle.
Jul 29 - 1:59 PM

BuffaloBills.com 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.
Jun 14 - 11:52 AM

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.
