Ochocinco had considered donning Henry's jersey, but league rules prohibit it.
NFL rules would also prevent the NFL Players Association from reimbursing Ochocinco for any fines he would've incurred had he worn Henry's number.
NFLPA spokesman George Atallah had tweeted Saturday that his organization would cover the fine.
The organization has already established a memorial fund for Henry and plan to match any fine for Ochocinco to that fund and/or the Players Assistance Fund.
But the NFLPA is prohibited from reimbursing the fine money that would be automatically withheld from Ochocinco's paycheck by the league.
Ochocinco is familiar with NFL rules. He was prevented from changing the name on his jersey two years ago unless it was his legal name; later Chad Johnson changed his legal name to Chad Ochocinco.
