The Buffalo Bills knew that one of their top offensive tackles would return this week, and today they took the step of adding him to the active roster. Seantrel Henderson is officially back, per a team release. He replaces safety Colt Anderson, who heads to IR with a hand injury.
Henderson was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. His suspension was heavily criticized at the time by his agent, who said that Henderson’s treatment for Crohn’s disease triggered the positive test. With Cyrus Koundjio still battling an ankle injury, Henderson joins Michael Ola, Cordy Glenn, and Jordan Mills as the team’s healthy offensive tackles.
Anderson was brought in to provide impact on special teams, and his season ends without having provided much impact at all. He was inactive for the first three games of the season after suffering a foot injury and made his debut against the Patriots. He recorded two tackles in yesterday’s victory over Los Angeles before leaving the game due to the aforementioned injury. He had not recorded a snap on defense, finding himself a firm sixth in a deep safety rotation.
