“It’s a blessing to be here after going through something like that. A lot of people wouldn’t survive that. I’ve got some people up in the sky protecting me,” Henderson told CBS4’s Michael Spencer.

The crash happened earlier this month in Parker.

Henderson says he’s lucky to be alive. He says he was on his way to pick up dinner for his family when a speeding car t-boned him causing his Jeep to roll over.

“I got a newborn son. I got a fiancé. I got a family that really cares about me, teammates that are really counting on me. It just put everything in perspective, humbled you down a little bit more, and made you appreciate life itself. Not even football, just life,” he said.
