The Cincinnati Bengals are traveling to Louisiana to say final farewells to late teammate Chris Henry.

A two-hour public viewing Tuesday will be followed immediately by the funeral service for Henry. He died last week from massive head injuries a day after he fell out of the back of a pickup truck in North Carolina. Police say Henry was having a domestic dispute with his fiancee.

The Bengals chartered an early morning flight so coaches, players and front-office employees could attend the services at the Alario Sports Complex outside New Orleans. The 26-year-old Henry was from nearby Belle Chasse (CHAYS), La.

Bengals Head Coach Marvin Lewis and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell are expected to deliver eulogies. source

 
This still just breaks my heart every time I think about it.

  1. Do you know who am I?
    Here is a hot news
    The Colts continue to surprise everyone and keep playing their stars. Players such as Peyton Manning, Dwight Freeney, and Reggie Wayne continue to suit up for the Colts. The Colts have accomplished everything set out so far but it still remains a question if going perfect is one of those items.More interesting NFL Draft.
    This week will be interesting to see what happens with the Jets. The Jets are fighting for their playoff lives and also have the best defense in football. Is that something that Peyton Manning needs to see right now? It’s a hard question to answer but all I know is that this is still the #1 team in football.
    Merry Christmas!And have a good time!

  2. The NFL is creating a partnership with researchers at Boston University who are studying the long-term effects of brain injuries on players, the Associated Press reported. “It’s huge that the NFL Draftactively gets behind this research,” Robert Cantu, the co-director of the school’s research program, told the AP. “It forwards the research. It allows players to realize the is concerned about the possibility that they could have this problem and that the NFL is doing everything it can to find out about the risks and the preventive strategies that can be implemented.”
