The Return Of Chris Henry


The official return of Bengals WR Chris Henry happens this Wednesday as he takes the practice field again after serving his eight game suspension from the league. Henry adds a potent weapon to a struggling Bengals offense and I am hoping it can help out the other receivers and QB Carson Palmer.

So today I thought I would take a look at the impact of Henry on this team in a bit of a detailed fashion, here is what shook out.


  • 14 Games
  • 31 Catches For 422 Yards
  • 6 TD’s
  • Bengals Record when Henry makes a catch 15-11
  • 2 Career 100 Yard Games

Not bad at all, Henry has always been a talent, but reigning that in is another thing. He is big and physical as a wideout and seems to like the endzone (and Palmer likes throwing to him there as well). I don’t see the return of Henry doing much for the Bengals season, but it could improve the offense quite a bit if he plays like he did his first two seasons in the league.
