After nearly eight months away from the field battling Crohn's disease, Seantrel Henderson finally returned to action this past week.
The right tackle was back at practice on Sunday and showed no ill-effects after playing nearly the entire game against Washington.
While he admitted he had to dust off the rust, he earned high praise from the coaches.
"I judge myself pretty hard. I felt like I played OK. I played way more snaps than I thought I would, which is great," he told reporters on Sunday. "I think my technique could have been better, my hand placement could have been better. I was just glad to be out there."
"I was really, really pleasantly surprised that he was able to go as much as he did," Head Coach Rex Ryan added. "And shoot, he might not have been as dominant a player as we've seen him be, but he was really good."
The 23-year-old was diagnosed last December with Crohn's disease.
The Bills signed quarterback Austin Trainor ahead of the Lions preseason game on Thursday.
"Obviously this is a move to get us through the game on Thursday," Ryan said. "You know if indeed we need him. That is why we signed him."
Cardale Jones continues to deal with a sore shoulder, but was not at practice on Sunday due to a "personal issue."
Offensive lineman Cordy Glenn returned to practice on Sunday, as did Aaron Williams and Mike Gillislee who are both going through concussion protocol.
