According to reports from the Cincinnati Bengals website, Chris Henry's funeral is tentatively set for next Tuesday, December 22 in Gretna, La., near New Orleans.
Fellow team players held a somber practice Thursday and dedicated the rest of their season to receiver Henry after learning that he'd died a day after falling from the back of a pickup truck during what was described by police as a domestic dispute.
It's a curveball to everybody, said Peko, the defensive tackle and a captain.
I just pray for his mom and his family and for Loleini's family, and hope everything works out. Only they know what really happened. All I know is we lost Chris and when you lose a good friend like that it's going to hurt, Peko added.
