Seantrel Henderson, the Miami Hurricanes offensive lineman who at one point was the top overall recruit in the country, is likely going to miss his team's season opener after a trying offseason which, in the last month or so, has included attending two funerals and being involved in a major car accident in Miami Aug. 1, in which a 5-year-old girl was hospitalized.

Head coach Al Golden spoke to Jorge Milian of the Palm Beach Post Monday, and he mentioned his 6-foot-8, 340 pound right tackle.

In the Miami Herald's story about the car accident, Henderson was quoted as saying he was "just glad to be alive," and the Herald reported he was hospitalized with a mild concussion. Just two days later, the Herald reported, he was in his home state of Minnesota to attend a friend's funeral, and went back less than two weeks later for a funeral of a family member.
