CINCINNATI (Dec. 15, 2005) -- Bengals rookie receiver Chris Henry was arrested on traffic and marijuana charges, but later practiced with the team.
The Bengals said in a statement it wouldn't take any action until his case goes through the court system.
Henry, a third-round pick from West Virginia, was stopped by police in nearby Covington, Ky., at about 2 a.m., according to a police report. He was driving a vehicle with expired tags, had an expired license and was speeding, police said.
Officers said they also found two small bags of marijuana on Henry, who was charged with possession.
"The club is aware of the reports regarding Chris Henry," the Bengals said in a statement. "In such cases, the team considers it inappropriate to comment further while the matter is still being adjudicated.
"When the legal process has run its course, the team and the NFL will consider what action is necessary."
Henry ranks third among Bengals receivers with 30 catches and has scored five touchdowns. The rookie has developed into the team's No. 3 receiver, behind Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh.
