The thoughts and prayers of the Raider Nation go out to the Cincinati Bengals, the Bengals fans, as well as the family and friends of Chris Henry. He lost his battle for life this morning after falling out of a pickup truck yesterday.This is a time when the color of the jerseys no longer matter, it is sad to see a young man cut down in the prime of his life.
This is the second tragedy to strike the Bengals this seasos, as earlier this year defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer lost his wife to cancer. The team rallied around him to upset the Baltimore Ravens and thrist themselves into the top of the playoff pictire. It would not be a surprise to see the Bengals respond in the same way again.
The NFLPA issued the following statement, "The NFL Players Association is deeply saddened by the news of Chris Henry’s passing this morning. We were all shocked and dismayed to hear of this horrific tragedy. Chris was a fine player, but more importantly a fine person. On behalf of all NFL players, we would like to express our deepest condolences to his family, friends and all of the fans he inspired across the country.”
Those of us here at TFDS offer our thoughts and prayers to the Bengals, their fans, and the friends and family of Henry.
