Bills OT Suspended 10 Games for Substance Abuse


For whatever reason, Buffalo Bills offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson continues to fail drug tests. Before the season, Henderson violated the substance abuse policy, which resulted in a four-game suspension. Now, Henderson finds himself banned for 10 games for another failed test.

Last season, Henderson missed the final five games after he was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. In an attempt to return to form, the seventh round pick used medical marijuana.

“I’ve got doctors telling me this is the No. 1 medicine that would help your disease,” Henderson said. “You try to tell that to the league, and it seems like they didn’t care too much.”

Henderson has only appeared in one game this season.
