Miami offensive lineman Seantrel Henderson has been dealing with personal issues for at least the past couple of weeks during fall practices. Turns out, it could cost him playing time.
Following Monday’s practice, ‘Canes coach Al Golden said Henderson is still working through personal matters and projects him to miss the season-opening game against Boston College.
Al Golden says Seantrel Henderson has to “get personal house in order.” Does not expect him to play vs, BC.

Henderson’s already been absent from a number of practices lately for various reasons, including a concussion from a car accident and the death of a longtime friend. As a result, he’s not even listed on the latest two-deep. He also missed a few spring practices for violating team rules.
It’s been a rough go for Henderson since he arrived in Miami from USC two years ago. For one reason or another — and sometimes through no fault of his own — life at the collegiate level hasn’t quite worked out for the former five-star recruit. Mental maturity, injuries, personal problems — it’s been a bad combo.
