Chris Henry, a receiver for the Cincinatti Bengals, died early this morning, a day after falling out of the back of his pickup truck. He was 26 years old. The reports say the reason for his tumble was a domestic dispute, but that really isn’t important at the moment. If you’re looking for the details as to the cause of the domestic dispute then I’m afraid you’re on the wrong page, I’m just here to pay my respects to a great football player, great role model, and great human being.
Despite his ugly past, I’ve heard nothing but good things about Henry recently. The Bengals reported he was on the upswing and overall had a 180 degree attitude change.
Henry leaves behind three children (DeMarcus, Seini, and Chris Jr.). My heart goes out to his family and the Bengals. This Sunday was already going to be a tough game against San Diego, but now I’m having trouble seeing how the Bengals are going to be able to cope with all the emotion of the day.
R.I.P. Chris Henry, you’ll be missed.
