Ex-NFL WR Henry Ruggs appears to be training in ankle monitors

Henry Ruggs III appears to be back on the football pitch for training. In a video posted to TikTok, the ex-Raiders wide receiver is apparently filmed undergoing speed drills earlier this week.

“Henry Ruggs is back on the pitch training,” the caption read.

There are some questions about the recency of the video, but it was posted by Jalen Davidson from Cold Turkey Productions. He runs a video production company that has worked with brands like Nike, Adidas, Walmart, and BET, among others. It also appears that Ruggs wears ankle monitors.

This would indicate that Henry Ruggs III was filmed training after November 22, 2021

That day, a judge ordered that he wear a GPS monitor on one ankle and a continuous alcohol monitor on the other while under house arrest. The decision came after Ruggs was involved in a fatal car accident in Las Vegas.

Ruggs, 22 at the time, was charged with impaired driving causing substantial bodily harm and reckless driving causing death, two felonies. According to police reports, Ruggs was traveling at a speed of 156 mph about two seconds before hitting another vehicle. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.16, double the legal limit. A loaded gun was also found in the car.

The crash resulted in the death of Tina Tintor and her dog after the 23-year-old was punched by Ruggs. Both cars rolled over and her vehicle caught fire as she was trapped inside.

Ruggs was released from jail on $150,000 bond and continues to face the original charges, as well as additional charges related to the fatal crash. As the legal process continues, Ruggs has been placed under house arrest.

On March 16, however, Ruggs was allowed to leave home twice a week for three hours at a time to train in approved locations. It appears Ruggs was filmed working out at Greater Atlanta Christian High School, just outside of Atlanta.

Currently, Ruggs is unemployed.

He was released by the Raiders immediately after being charged in November. His future in the NFL remains uncertain as his trial continues, but he is unlikely to take another shot in the league. That doesn’t seem to be stopping Ruggs from staying fit and holding out hope of returning one day.
