Bills’ T Henderson suspended for 10 games

Seantrel Henderson

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Buffalo Bills T Seantrel Henderson has been suspended without pay for 10 games after violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Complications from Crohn’s disease kept Henderson off the field during the offseason, and when he was cleared for practice in August, he played one game with the team.

Shortly after this, Henderson was suspended for four games after testing positive for marijuana.

Henderson tried to appeal his suspension, but it was upheld. An Associated Press source told them that the appeal was “based on him using marijuana for medicinal purposes.”

Henderson will be allowed to participate in all offseason and preseason games and practices, the Bills say.

“The league has notified us of the suspension and we are moving forward with our preparations to play the Oakland Raiders this Sunday,” the team said in a statement.
