Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry has passed away, TMZ reports, due to injuries he sustained yesterday after he fell from the back of a moving pick-up truck. He was 26.

Cops believe Henry, who was introduced to a TV audience during HBO’s Hard Knocks: Training Camp With the Cincinnati Bengals, jumped into the back of the truck in an attempt to stop his fiancée from leaving a “domestic situation” at her parents’ home in North Carolina.

Henry was rushed to the hospital, but the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Henry died at 6:36 a.m EST this morning.

Police said they are still investigating the situation.
