With the recent tragedy of the Bengals receiver Chris Henry, this weeks game is going to be emotional. Henry passed away a day after being admitted to the hospital after falling out of the bed of a truck. Reports have said that him and his fiancee were in a dispute. The full story is not known yet.
Henry was known for being a redemption player. Earlier in his career he was involved in many off-field problems, including 5 arrests and a few suspensions from playing. He was released in 2007 because of the problems he was having, but the Bengals resigned him in 2008. Since being resigned he has has no legal problems. He was 26.
A very similar story occurred a little over 2 years ago, to Washington Redskins player, Sean Taylor. Taylor was known early in his career for having some off-field problems. Once his son was born, he made a turn for the better and he started to show great improvement as a person. He was shot in his Miami home on November 27, 2007. He was 24.
