Some members of the Kansas City Chiefs defense are expected to be wearing tape on their fingers in the same way that Eric Berry has done in order to acknowledge their teammate who is battling the discovery of a mass in his chest feared to be lymphoma.

You can see the tape Berry usually wears in the picture above. He has done so at least dating back to his days at Tennessee.
