It was tough break for former UH safety Trayvon Henderson.
He was expected to make the Cincinnati Bengals’ 53-player, opening-day roster. But Henderson, who signed with the Bengals as a free agent, suffered what was diagnosed as a torn ACL, his representatives told the Warrior Beat.
Henderson is expected to be placed on injury reserve.

One of the things the basketball ‘Bows do well is celebrate birthdays. Yesterday, they sang and ate brownies in honor of point guard Brocke Stepteau’s 22nd birthday.
The ‘Bows, who completed a four-games-in-four-cities tour of Australia this summer, are back on the offseason schedule. The NCAA allows each team eight hours a week for official basketball-related activities, including up to four hours for supervised workouts. The ‘Bows spread those workouts in one-hour increments.
All 16 players traveled to Australia, but Zigmars Raimo, Justin Hemsley and Leland Green were held out of games because of ailments. Hemsley has been cleared for full practice, while Green and Raimo are on limited workouts. They should be ready to go for the September start of preseason practices.
