With Cordy Glenn on the Active/Non-Football Illness list the starting left tackle spot will be vacant for the team’s first training camp practice Sunday night at St. John Fisher. Bills GM Doug Whaley in an appearance on the John Murphy Show tonight confirmed that it will be rookie seventh round pick Seantrel Henderson manning the role.

“Seantrel Henderson we know his demons off the field and we feel he has control of those things. With Cordy being out going to be our starting left tackle right now,” said Whaley. “He’s a talented guy and we feel if he didn’t have those demons he would’ve probably gone in the first round. So we’re excited to see him translate that (talent) to the field.”
Henderson certainly possesses some of the best athleticism of the young offensive linemen on the roster. Here’s a previous blog we did on Henderson during minicamp in June when he originally stepped in for Cordy Glenn with the starters and didn’t do too bad. Note the quote from RB Anthony Dixon.
