The NFL season is a day away from its kickoff and already players are managing to get suspended.

The Buffalo Bills take on the Baltimore Ravens in Maryland in one of the early Sunday games but will have to go there without Seantrel Henderson, who will have to stay at home after being suspended.

The offensive tackle has been banned for four games by Roger Goodell and the National Football League, but the Bills are fighting it.

The news of the suspension was first revealed by ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, who stated the ban was for four games.

That was followed up by NFL Network reporter Ian Rapaport stating that the suspension is apparently due to Henderson smoking marijuana, which can be used as part of a treatment for Chron's Disease - which Henderson suffers from.

Rapaport would go on to add that the Bills and Henderson will be appealing the suspension because weed is used to deal with pain, especially after someone undergoes double surgery on their intestines.

If the NFL reject the appeal then Henderson will be out until week five, when the Bills take on the Los Angeles Rams on October 9.
