Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy took plenty of questions about firebrand guard Marshall Henderson at SEC media days on Wednesday and couldn't say how much time the fun-loving, trash-talking sharp-shooter might miss at the beginning of the season because of offseason troubles off the court.

Henderson was suspended indefinitely in July for team rules violations.The school provided no further details on what led to the suspension, but reported it was because of a failed drug test.

He was stopped by police in May for allegedly speeding and was in possession of small amounts of marijuana and cocaine. He was cited for driving without proof of insurance but no other charges were filed and he was not arrested.

Henderson was named first-team all-SEC this week and Kennedy suggested reporters should have their credentials checked if he hadn't been included as a first-teamer. Henderson led the SEC in scoring last season and was a key component of a team that advanced to the Sweet 16.

Kennedy said Henderson is going through an ongoing process to earn the right to play basketball for the school again. He is practicing with the team.
