Andy Reid on the Kansas City Chiefs’ plan to replace Eric Berry

As you know by now, Eric Berry is out indefinitely with a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder told the media on Monday afternoon that this is normally a six-month recovery, but you never know with Berry, “as he’s done some amazing things in the past.”

That said, the Chiefs will need to replace him for the rest of the season with what they now have on the roster.

“We’ve got (Eric) Murray and (Daniel) Sorensen and they both are experienced there and it just depends on what we’re going to do. Sorensen plays all over the place, but those are the two guys.”

The Chiefs also brought back Steven Terrell, who was with the club throughout the preseason before being released at the 53-man roster deadline.

Terrell actually had the most combined tackles for the team this preseason with 17 (nine solo).

“We thought he had a good feel when he was here,” Reid said. “He gives you some special teams. He’s good in the back end there, he’s a smart kid, so we like the way he played when he was here, obviously. He seemed to be a good communicator back there, which is what you need.”

Arrowhead Pride Podcast co-host Shawn Barber (who is now on Twitter), had this to say about Terrell last week:

“He’s the corner who had to come in for Earl Thomas (in Seattle) when Thomas went down,” Barber said. “He plays the run very effectively. He’s been able to play deep, come up in the box, and he’s only 26 years old, fairly young guy, very healthy but definitely a run stopper.”

Terrell appeared in 32 games (five starts) for the Seahawks over three seasons (2014-2016), making 24 tackles (15 solo) and eight special teams tackles (five solo).
