REPORT - Travis Henry Tests Positive...Again; Facing Suspension

MyFox Colorado is reporting that former Broncos runningback Travis Henry has once again tested positive for marijuana and is facing a yearlong suspension. 

A highly placed source in the NFL told Fox 31 sports reporter Josina Anderson that Henry failed the test that the troubled player would be "up for a suspension".

This comes after Henry had successfully appealed a positive test taken prior to last season.  Claiming the test was a "false positive", Henry won his claim against the NFL, though as part of the agreement he remained in the NFL's substance abuser program.

Earlier this spring the Broncos released Henry stating that the former Bill and Titan was "too inconsistent as a person. When you're too inconsistent as a person, you usually aren't going to win championships,".

When the source was asked if Henry knew of the positive test, he replied, "“I was told this result is recent. [Henry] should already be informed. If he didn’t know, he knows now,”

I think we all knew this was coming, as unfortunate as it was.  I felt at the time the Broncos knew that Henry's behavior was risky at the least and they were wise to cut ties when they did.
