Bengals lose receiver Henry to broken arm
Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry wasn't sure whether he'd play again this season after he broke his arm during a 17-7 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Henry broke his left forearm just above the wrist when he was tackled by cornerback Fabian Washington after a 10-yard reception. Henry's back hit the ground, and Washington landed on top of him.
