Just so you know, I hate writing this article as much as you hate reading it.
Eric Berry is done for the season, and Andy Reid’s quote in his conference call Friday spoke volumes.
“You’re not going to replace Eric Berry with another Eric Berry,” Reid said.
But the Chiefs have to replace him with someone, so what will they do?
We know the in-house names to watch are Daniel Sorensen and Eric Murray, but is there anyone on the outside?
Arrowhead Pride Podcast co-host Shawn Barber gave us two names to watch on an emergency podcast we cut Friday afternoon.
Steven Terrell (who the Chiefs just cut last week)
“He’s the corner who had to come in for Earl Thomas (in Seattle) when Thomas went down. 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 actually tweeted when he saw the injury to Berry last night:
I'm praying that's not a serious injury for EB— Steven Terrell (@SdotTerrell) September 8, 2017
“We know him from many years ago—drafted really high, didn’t reach that level that everybody had drafted him to be (Elam was taken with the No. 32 overall pick in the first round in 2013).
“At 25 years old, he’s still a young guy in the league. He still has a lot of football left in front of him, just really hasn’t found his niche. Maybe Kansas City is a right fit for him.”
NOTE: Barber actually mentioned the recently released Calvin Pryor, but he was claimed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as I was editing the podcast.
