NEW YORK (AP) -- Wide receiver Chris Henry was suspended by the
NFL on Thursday for four games but may play the final 12 games of
the regular season for any team that signs him.
Henry was released by Cincinnati in April after his fifth
arrest. Commissioner Roger Goodell had suspended Henry indefinitely
following his latest arrest. The charges against him on that arrest
were subsequently dropped.
The 25-year-old player, one of a number of Bengals in trouble
with the law the past few seasons, then applied for reinstatement.
Henry may participate in training camp and exhibition games if
he is signed. He will be eligible for reinstatement following the
fourth game of the season.
