Henderson was placed on the Reserve/Did Not Report list at the end of July.
Henderson has had his troubles off field, when he was arrested on a first offense possession of marijuana in his hometown of West Monroe, Louisiana in January.
Henderson did not play a snap in his rookie year for the Broncos. The 23-year-old Louisiana native underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb and was placed on injured reserve in September of 2017.
