Updated: 7:10 p.m.

LA JOLLA, Calif. - Chris Henry's funeral is set for Tuesday at the Alario Center at Westwego, La., near downtown New Orleans. Visitation is from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., CST, with the service at 1 p.m. Bengals personnel are flying on a team charter Tuesday morning and returning after the service. It is unclear yet which players and coaches are going to attend.

The players continue to grieve in different ways. While wide receiver Chad Ochocinco mulls wearing No. 15, he knows the exact celebration he'll perform if he scores Sunday in San Diego.

"Remember how Slim would throw the ball high in the air after he scored?" The Ocho asked. "That would be the way to do it."

Defensive lineman Jon Fanene, one of Henry's closest friends, could be seen in the lobby of the team hotel with a new T-shirt. On the front of the shirt were the three pictures of Henry that are on the memorial page of and on the back was "Henry" over No. 15.
