Miami's Seantrel Henderson still not cleared to play
By Heather Dinich
Any Miami fans still holding out hope to see offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson in the starting lineup for the season opener against BC might want to reconsider.
Henderson has missed 21 practices and still has “a long way to go” to catch up, according to coach Al Golden. Miami’s latest depth chart, which was released this morning, is likely to be the last of the preseason. True freshman Ereck Flowers has been starting at right tackle, backed up by redshirt junior Jermaine Johnson. Henderson could be medically cleared to rejoin the team as early as Tuesday, according to a source, but contributing to the team is not the top priority right now.
“Seantrel is going through some personal issues,” Golden said. “He had some tragedy in his life. We’re supporting him. The biggest thing for Seantrel right now is to take a deep breath, get around those that care for him and want to help him and get himself and his house in order. Once he does that, he can turn his attention to helping his teammates and this program.”
