Tuesday November 29th, 2016

Buffalo Bills left tackle Seantrel Henderson was handed a 10-game suspension for a second violation of the substance-abuse policy. The Buffalo News reports that Henderson could pursue legal action against the NFL if the second suspension stands.

Henderson missed the first four games of the season for his positive test for marijuana.

The Bills issued the following statement: “The league has notified us of the suspension and we are moving forward with our preparations to play the Oakland Raiders this Sunday.”

Henderson says that his marijuana use is for medicinal purposes and treating Crohn's disease, which he was diagnosed with at the end of last season and caused him to the last five games of the season.

Jordan Mills has started 11 games for the Bills at right tackle. Henderson has played in a reserve role.
