At least two players were back at camp Wednesday and another two were missing.
Offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson was cleared to practice, UM coach Al Golden said, after returning from Minnesota to attend his second funeral in a month. He is not on the depth chart, however, and is doubtful for the Sept. 1 opener at Boston College.
Also returning was defensive lineman Corey King, a 6-1, 295-pound redshirt freshman who had been wearing a red, no-contact jersey for most, if not all, of camp.
“It’s good to have both of them back,” Golden said.
Missing, however, at least for the media’s early viewing, was redshirt freshman Eddie Johnson, an outside linebacker who is listed as a co-first-teamer with Thurston Armbrister.
“Nothing has changed,” Golden said of Johnson’s status, when asked about his absence — in light of rampant social media talk saying Johnson was suspended or off the team.
Also out again: defensive tackle Curtis Porter. Porter is no longer on the depth chart, and Golden had said previously he was dealing with a health issue. Insidetheu.com reported that Porter underwent an appendectomy last week.
