The Bengals game against the Browns this Sunday will mark the final game of Chris Henry's suspension. Henry was suspended for the first four games of the regular season due for violating the NFL's conduct policy.
The team plans to apply to the league office for a roster exemption on Henry so he won't count against the 53-man roster when he returns to practice next week.
Henry was suspended the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy. His suspension ends Monday, Sept. 29, when he resumes full team activities.
Henry has had barely any time with the team since the Bengals resigned him late in the preseason. Of course, this is the same offense and nearly identical personnel as he has been with during his entire NFL career.
Some perceive this as head coach Marvin Lewis' way of handling Henry. Remember that Lewis cut Henry for his off-field issues and fought team owner Mike Brown from bringing him back. Brown wanted him back and won that battle. The fact that Lewis may take his sweet time bringing Henry back could be a sore spot between he and Brown.
