Tradegy strikes the Bengals again: Chris Henry becomes the next NFL player to die way too young
December 17, 2009
In a year that has seen so much hope and positive play from a franchise that has struggled mightily over the past few years, the tragedy of losing a young, talented player like Chris Henry must hit even harder. The Cincinnati wideout succumbed to injuries sustained from falling off of the back of a moving truck yesterday and passed away this morning at a Charlotte, NC hospital. He is survived by his fiancee and three children. It is another tale of off-the-field tragedy that has become an all too familiar story for NFL players. I don’t know much about Henry, but it had been nice to see him finally break out from what had been an otherwise mediocre NFL career to find increased success with the Bengals this season. One can only help that his family and the Bengals organization can find some way to use today’s tragedy to rally for a better tomorrow.
