In addition to having world-class impregnation skills (and leading the NFL in rushing), Broncos running back Travis Henry is an alleged afficianado of the sticky icky. Multiple outlets are reporting that Henry faces a one-year suspension for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. The Denver Post even details the fact that Henry just emerged from a probationary period resulting from his last drug suspension.
In related news, this season is rapidly swirling down a toilet near you. Please thank the God of your choice for the baseball playoffs and especially these magical Rockies, because they are performing a valuable service–they’re distracting us from how awful this football team might be. I mean, we were all aware that this game against the Chargers was going to be pivotal, but who knew it might virtually end the season for the loser?
Anyway, it looks like the home town club will move forward with Selvin Young as the starting tailback. And a horrible offensive line. And a hobbled No. 1 wide receiver. And a quarterback with bickering parents. And a defense that can’t tackle. Otherwise, things are looking fantastic. I apologize for my negativity, I’m sure Travis Henry could prescribe me a medication that would assuage my anxiety.
