Emotional Bengals take Henry's death hard

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) — Teary-eyed Cincinnati Bengals players held a somber practice and dedicated the rest of their season to receiver Chris Henry, who died one day after falling out of the back of a pickup truck during a domestic dispute. Henry was 26.

Bengals wide receiver Andre Caldwell said of his late teammate: "People thought he was a bad guy. But he had a big heart."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') issued a statement saying the league was "greatly saddened" by the tragic news of Henry's death.

Bengals coach Marvin Lewis says "it's a very difficult thing" with the loss of a young life that will never get to reach its potential.

Bengals owner Mike Brown says the team knew Henry differently from his public persona. Brown says that Henry was working through troubles that had caused multiple arrests during his five-year NFL career. The Bengals owner says he thought Henry was about to "blossom" on and off the field.

The 9-and-4 Bengals can clinch the AFC North title with a victory on Sunday in San Diego.

They'll wear helmet stickers in Henry's memory. There was a moment of silence before the Indianapolis-Jacksonville game in Henry's memory, as there will be before all NFL games this weekend.
