Chris Henry, who died in a traffic accident last year, had a form of brain damage at the time of his death. The Bengals wide receiver had chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a form of brain damage caused by multiple hits to the head, according to scientists at the Brain Injury Research Institute. "We would have been very happy if the results had been negative, but multiple areas of Chris Henry's brain showed CTE," said Julian Bailes, Director of BIRI.
