Rex Ryan may not have known where Seantrel Henderson was, but the Bills medical staff reportedly did.
Early on Monday, the Buffalo News reported that the Bills did not know where Henderson was or if he would play football in 2016.
After the story was posted, Henderson’s agent apparently contacted Buffalo News writer Tyler Dunne. The agent, Alan Herman, says Henderson is expected to report to the Bils this week and is cleared to practice.
News of Henderson’s battle with Crohn’s disease went public last fall, and the Bills right tackle had two surgeries recently to remove infected areas and then re-attach his intestines.
Henderson did not contact the Bills coaches while he was recovering, but they apparently did not reach out to him either. Hence, Ryan’s comments last week that he can’t recall talking with Henderson since the end of the 2015 season.
The plan all along, according to Herman, was for Henderson to return June 1st. He’s been recovering at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
