Seantrel Henderson hasn't spoken with Rex Ryan

New, comments

As OTAs continue, last year's starting right tackle hasn't been at One Bills Drive very much.

Seantrel Henderson's long-term role on the Buffalo Bills was placed in doubt when he missed the final five games of the season due to an illness (reported to be Chron's Disease). Months later, it's not clear if or when he'll return to the field and even the head coach doesn't know.

"Yeah I have no update for you guys on that," Ryan told the press following the opening of OTAs. "That is a medical thing. I really have no update. I haven’t seen Seantrel in quite a while." Continuing to speak about Henderson, Ryan said that he couldn't recall the last time he personally spoke with the right tackle, but he thinks it was the last day of the season.

This week, the Bills had Jordan Mills practicing with the starters and Cyrus Kouandjio working with the second team at right tackle. Henderson wasn't in the building. Henderson has stopped in to One Bills Drive on occasion, but it appears that the treatment for his illness is keeping him busy right now. In the meantime, Mills is projected to start, unless Kouandjio can win a position battle. If that doesn't happen, Kouandjio may be on thin ice.
