Cincinnati Bengals Receiver Chris Henry Dead

Chris HenryIt’s a mournful day in the NFL and to all that knew Chris Henry.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry died Thursday morning, one day after falling out of the back of a pickup truck during what police said was a domestic dispute with his fiancee. Henry was only 26 years young.

Police spokeswoman Rosalyn Harrington said homicide detectives have been assigned to the case but had no further information.

Later Thursday, police released two 911 tapes. The first was from an unidentified woman who said she was following a yellow pickup truck. Just over a minute later, an unidentified man called 911 and said he saw a man “laying in the road” and “definitely unconscious.”

Henry was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after being found on a curvy section of a residential road. Police said the dispute began at a home about a half-mile away, and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his fiancee drove away from the residence.

Police said at some point when she was driving, Henry “came out of the back of the vehicle.” Harrington wouldn’t say if the woman, whom police wouldn’t identify, was present at the scene when police arrived.

When the players received word that Henry had died, quarterback Carson Palmer called them together in the locker room and said they should dedicate the game and rest of the season to Henry and the wife of defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, who unexpectedly died during the season.

Henry was away from the Bengals after breaking his left forearm during a Nov. 8 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. He had surgery and was placed on season-ending injured reserve following the game.

“We are greatly saddened by today’s tragic news about the loss of Chris Henry,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to Chris’ family, including his Bengals family. We have been in contact with the Bengals to offer our support through this difficult time.

“I ask you to keep Chris Henry and his family in your thoughts today.”
