Starting right guard Dr. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and cornerback Steve Nelson cleared the concussion protocol and returned to practice on Monday afternoon, as the Kansas City Chiefs began preparations for Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers.
Andy Reid typically holds out most of his starters for the fourth and final preseason game, and that once again seems like the plan headed into Thursday.
Here is who won’t practice Monday, according to Chiefs PR:
- CB Step Durham (hip)
- DL Justin Hamilton (ankle)
- S Eric Berry (heel)
- Daniel Sorensen (Knee)
Though Monday marks the 16th consecutive day of Berry being held out of workouts, we’ve now reached the part of the preseason where if there is any question, it’s smart to be cautious.
The key day to watch when it comes to Berry is Wednesday, September 5, the first day of practice for the Week 1 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.
If Berry is held out of practice on that date, the Chiefs officially have a bigger problem on their hands than they have wanted to let on.
