Chris Henry Cleared... No, Really...

The other day, a co-worker stopped me in the hallway and asked, "What's going on with Henry?" At this point of the day, we had heard that Henry failed his court mandated drug test, would spend 413 years in prison and would be cut... soon. Then we heard that the Kenton County Prosecutor's Office had backtracked and the team confirmed that Henry was under compliance. My response to the question was, "absolutely nothing."

Confirmed. The Bengals released the following:

"The Bengals are pleased that Kentucky’s Division of Probation and Parole has confirmed in a press advisory today that Chris Henry did not violate any court-ordered testing he has undergone.

"The Club is not aware of any circumstance in which Chris has not complied with his obligations to legal and NFL-related procedures that will be required if he is to return to active playing status during the 2007 season.

"The Club regrets that incomplete and/or false information distributed to the media earlier this week resulted in incorrect reports regarding Chris’ status."
