The 26-year-old Berry is battling Hodgkin's lymphoma, which limited him to six games last season. It remains to be seen if and when he returns to the field.
“He’s doing well in that treatment process, but that’s a tough process to go through,” said Clark Hunt, who visited Berry in Atlanta in January and gets regular updates on his status.
Head coach Andy Reid also reiterated that Berry is progressing well.
“He’s doing well,” said Reid, who said he last spoke to Berry a week before he arrived for the meetings. “(He’s) positive and upbeat.”
"Well, anybody who knows Eric Berry knows that if there's a challenge presented to him, he will attack it with a vengeance," Dorsey said, per NFL.com. "And he will do that. Everything that I have gotten back has been very positive. I have not spoken with him on the phone for probably six weeks, but I have texts. We communicated through texts. He's in good spirits, he's fine, he's driving, and he's going to conquer it."
Berry, 26, was diagnosed in December. His career is on hold while he fights the treatable disease.
“He’s a stud … special place in my heart for a guy like that,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star.

Berry, who was placed on the non-football injury list two weeks ago, played in just six games this season.
He will now begin chemotherapy for what doctors have described as a "very treatable and potentially curable" form of cancer.
