Bengals Honoring Chris Henry
How quickly we are reminded that life goes on. If you need an direct example of that, check out the teammates of Chris Henry (RIP), who are committed to honoring his memory, even during the day-to-day grind of practice. Despite the unfortunate news, the Bengals continued with their preparation for Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers. Granted, I have little doubt they would appreciate a day or two to mourn their teammate, but the NFL season stops for no man — rarely, anyway.
The face of the franchise, Chad Ochocinco, has not been shy about his feelings for his fallen teammate, so much so, he donned Henry’s jersey during today’s practice session:
There’s also video of teammate Bobbie Williams sharing his thoughts on Henry:
And then there are the helmet stickers of Henry’s number 15 the Bengals will be wearing. All in all, it’s been a tremendously sad day for the Bengals franchise as they mourn a lost teammate, one who seemed to be finally making the most out of his fantastic physical gifts and the opportunities they gave him.
