CINCINNATI (AP) -More testing will be needed to determine whether suspended Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry has failed a drug screening.
The Bengals said Monday that they were awaiting more information on Henry from authorities in Kenton County, Kentucky. Meanwhile, the Bengals, plagued by a series of off-field problems for more than a year, waived linebacker A.J. Nicholson hours after he appeared in a court Monday on a domestic violence charge.
A spokeswoman for the Kenton County attorney's office said there would be more testing in the Henry case.
``We know that there are inconsistent reports about the routine drug screenings,'' said spokeswoman Melissa Pryor-Reed. ``As a result of these inconsistencies, further tests are currently pending.''
After reports circulated early Monday that Henry had failed a drug test, the chief prosecutor for Kenton County said authorities were waiting for final analysis from the Kentucky state lab.
``We have to wait for confirmation from the state lab. We have suspicion on a field test,'' Ken Easterling told The Cincinnati Enquirer. ``We cannot confirm or deny (Henry's test sample) contains a controlled substance.''
Failing a drug test could result in Henry's current NFL suspension of eight games being extended to at least a full season. He could also face more jail time in Kenton County.
