Seantrel Henderson, the 6-8, 340-pound junior right tackle, did not attend practice Saturday for the second day in a row. He was excused for the opening session Friday because he had attended the funeral of a childhood friend in Minnesota, coach Al Golden said.
But Golden didn’t say whether Henderson was excused or not Saturday.
Golden: “I have no idea what… again, when I told you guys Friday he’d be back … I have no idea what his schedule is, but I think he’s supposed to arrive back [Saturday].”
Henderson arrived late recently for the start of a summer session and was disciplined internally.
