Henry placed on IR after season-ending surgery; Kooistra to re-sign.

Chris Henry had season-ending surgery on his broken forearm today and was placed on Injured Reserve.  Evan Mathis is considered week-to-week and Scott Kooistra is reportedly to be re-signed shortly. 

Per the Bengals' official Twitter account, first reported by C. Trent Rosecrans of  Rosecrans' Twitter account can be found here.  @ctrent

Please continue to debate the merits of Chase Coffman vs. Jerome Simpson vs. Maurice Purify in the event that the discussion is once again relevant when Evan Mathis is fully healthy after getting shaken up yesterday, I don't expect Kooistra to be around for very long.  This seems to be a stop-gap type of move to get the team through the next couple of weeks.  I still hope to see either Purify, Simpson or Coffman soon.
