I’m not going to pretend I know much about Chris Henry. I know enough that he spent his career in Cincinnati, that he played for West Virginia, that his 2009 season was cut short by a thigh injury, and that he was working hard to turn his life around. You already know that.
But when I look beyond the drama, the career stats and the lost potential as a player and a person, I know enough to say that this is simply heartbreaking. Children have lost a father. A family has lost a son. A team has lost a valued colleague.
Our thoughts are with Chris’s family and teammates.
