Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is expected to speak to the media Wednesday at approximately 11:40 a.m. Arrowhead Time.
Prior to Reid’s address, Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder will take the podium to address all current Chiefs injuries. Burkholder does not take questions.
The No. 1 injury concern on the minds of Chiefs fans right now is the health of starting safety Eric Berry, who has not practiced since August 11 in St. Joseph due to a sore heel.
Happy Is Eric Berry’s Injury Serious? Day, everybody. Perfect weather for it.— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) September 5, 2018
The Chiefs have been mum on the topic for a while now, but what changes Wednesday is the beginning of the Week 1 injury report. If a player is out of practice or limited, that information is available to the public.
The good news is that Burkholder is typically very clear on where injuries of the team stand, and he usually provides a timetable.
In addition to updates on Berry, I expect we’ll hear the latest news on S Daniel Sorensen, wide receiver Byron Pringle and perhaps even cornerbacks Step Durham and Keith Reaser.
We are already aware that Sorensen is expected to miss regular-season games, but general manager Brett Veach mentioned he could play half the season on cutdown day.
That being said, the main focus for fans, media and analysts on Wednesday will be what is going on with Berry.
