It was Eric Berry’s first year in the NFL and the Kansas City Chiefs were in St. Joe for training camp. One of our readers went to camp with her two young nephews looking to get autographs. They were standing in line for Berry’s autograph and when he got there they asked if they could have his gloves but he had already given them away. So Berry took off his shoes right there at practice, signed them and gave them to the kids.
So, we’re used to stories like this with Berry. BJ Kissel of Chiefs dot com passes along another one:
Eric Berry is still signing. Security said they told Eric he could stop and go to the locker room.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) August 7, 2017

Berry isn’t practicing because of a sore heel. It doesn’t sound like it’s much to worry about, according to Andy Reid. While he’s not practicing, he’s using his time well and these fans are grateful.
