Ty Dunne of The Buffalo News wrote a piece on Sunday about a lack of communication between right tackle Seantrel Henderson and the Buffalo Bills. Bills head coach Rex Ryan had stated that he hadn't talked with Henderson since the end of last season.
It turns out that Henderson has been very busy dealing with his health. At the end of the year, it was revealed that Henderson was dealing with Crohn's disease. Shortly after Dunne's piece was published, Henderson's agent responded to Dunne and informed him that Henderson had two offseason surgeries in relation to his battle with Crohn's disease. The first was to remove infected areas and the second was to have his intestines reattached. Henderson's agent told Dunne that Buffalo's medical staff has aware of the surgeries. Despite having a second surgery, Henderson has been cleared to practice and will be reporting to Buffalo this week.
There seems to be a bit of a disconnect between Henderson and Ryan as the two have not been in communication with one another.
Ryan isn't expected to communicate with every one of his players, but it is a bit odd that he wasn't aware of Henderson's surgeries.null
