The Bengals have lost receiver Chris Henry for the remainder of the season after he had surgery on his broken left forearm. Coach Marvin Lewis said today that Henry will be placed on injured reserve this week, ending his season. He broke the forearm on his only catch Sunday during the huge 17-7 win over Baltimore that kept the Bengals (6-2) in first place in the AFC North.
Henry is in the last year of his deal with the Bengals, who released him after his fifth arrest following the 2007 season. Owner Mike Brown changed his mind and brought him back on a two-year deal, and Henry has stayed out of trouble. Henry was the team’s fourth-leading receiver with 12 catches for 236 yards and two touchdowns.
