Bills' Henderson suffers hip injury, status unknown
With Cordy Glenn starting training camp on the Active/Non-Football Illness list, Buffalo Bills seventh-round pick and rookie Seantrel Henderson had a humongous opportunity in front of him. Glenn's absense to start camp paved the way for Henderson to take the first-team reps at left tackle as the team opened up at St. John Fisher College.
That opportunity only lasted under an hour into the team's first practice of summer, however.
As the players were going through positional drills the rookie walked gingerly to the back of the end zone near where they were taking reps and the Bills training staff began a series of tests on him. Just a few minutes later, Henderson was sent back to the locker room and missed the remainder of practice.
After the session wrapped up the Bills relayed that Henderson had suffered a hip injury in the early stages of practice. His status for Monday's practice and beyond, however, is unknown to this point in time. After he left the field, former fourth-round selection Chris Hairston took first-team reps at left tackle.
Speedy wide receiver Marquise Goodwin also had to leave the team's first practice prematurely. Fortunately for the Bills, Goodwin simply had something "medical" that the training staff addressed in the locker room. The team expects him to be back at practice on Monday.
Second-year tight end Chris Gragg was the only other player to be checked on by the training staff on Sunday night. Gragg suffered a cramp near the end of practice and was held out for what little time was remaining. He's expected to return in time for Monday's practice as well.
The Bills will hold their second practice of training camp on Monday afternoon at 2 pm. The session is open to the general public.
