Canes RT Seantrel Henderson suspended vs. Georgia Tech

Seantrel Henderson's eventful career at Miami took another turn Saturday when the school announced about half an hour before kickoff that the right tackle was suspended for the Hurricanes' ACC opener against Georgia Tech.

According to a UM spokesperson, Miami coach Al Golden made the decision to suspend Henderson one game for violating an unspecified team rule.

After the game, Golden said Henderson was not at Sun Life Stadium during Miami's 45-30 win over the Yellow Jackets.

"I do," Golden responded when asked Saturday if he expected Henderson to return. "I haven't talked to him. I'm sure I'll sit down with him [Sunday.]"

This is not the first time the 6-foot-8, 345-pound lineman has had disciplinary issues during his time with the Hurricanes. Henderson, who started three of Miami's first four games this season, was suspended during spring practice back in 2012.

There were also multiple reports of a potential suspension for Miami's season opener against Maryland in 2011 that were not confirmed by Golden. Henderson ended up missing several games that season after recovering from off-season back surgery.

With Henderson out, the Hurricanes (5-0, 1-0) made several adjustments on the offensive line.

Jon Feliciano started the game at right tackle and Malcolm Bunche moved into the left guard spot.
