NFL: Kansas City Chiefs-Training Camp Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this post said that Eric Berry will practice this week. It has been corrected to could.


We have been keeping you posted—as of Monday, it has been 37 days since Kansas City Chiefs safety has taken a practice or game field.

That streak could reportedly be coming to an end, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Berry has been sidelined since August 11 with a sore heel. He missed the Chiefs’ entire preseason and the team’s first two regular-season games with the injury.

Here was a head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder on Berry 12 days ago:

“I know there has been a lot of questions about Eric Berry,” Burkholder said. “I know coach (Andy Reid) has said that it’s day to day. It is literally day to day. He won’t practice [Wednesday], but he’s spent a lot of time with us. He’s improving, he’s getting better every day and so we’ll continue with that process.”

The Chiefs have been consistent in saying Berry has been improving since then, but he had yet to practice. We should find out more with Chiefs head coach Andy Reid scheduled to speak at Noon Arrowhead Time.
