Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry avoided jail time by pleading guilty Tuesday to a concealed weapon charge.

In exchange for the plea, Henry will be on probation for two years, serve 100 hours of community service, attend a firearms safety class and forfeit the 9 mm gun he pulled during a skirmish in downtown Orlando.

Chris Henry says:
"I'd like to say I know I made a mistake, but I'm just trying to, you know what I'm saying, turn all of this into a positive," he said outside the courthouse. "I just want to get back to playing football. It's what I do."
