In a tragic turn of events, Bengals Wide Receiver Chris Henry has passed away after falling out of a moving pickup truck on Wednesday. He was only 26 years old.

Henry recently turned his life around after three years of off the field problems including legal trouble.

He was given another shot with the Bengals in August 2008, after being released by the team four months earlier. 

It was then that he turned his life around and as a sports fan I couldnt help but to root for him.

Henry credited his turnaround to his fiance who was involved in a domestic dispute with him when he fell out of her truck in the accident that took his life.

The full details of the accident are unknown but it seems that she was driving away from their home after an argument when Henry jumped into the back of her truck only to fall out.

My thoughts go out to the Henry family in this tragic time of need.
