Berry (Achilles) is expected to be out for six months, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. As disheartening as this is for Berry, it doesn't appear to be a career-threatening injury. There's a good chance he'll make a full recovery by or even before the six-month expected recovery date. Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder was quick to note that this is a ballpark estimate and things can change depending on his progress. While he's out, Daniel Sorenson is the likely replacement.
Berry (Achilles) was officially placed on injured reserve Saturday. Berry ruptured his Achilles tendon in Thursday's season-opening win over the Patriots. The veteran is one of the most valuable defensive backs in the league from his team's perspective due to both coverage and playmaking skills. The Chiefs will now turn to Daniel Sorensen for a strong safety presence, while Berry recovers and looks forward to the 2018 season.
Berry is dealing with a "potential tear" to his Achilles according to coach Andy Reid, Vahe Gregorian of the Kansas City Star reports. Assuming further medical tests support Reid's suspicion of a tear, Berry will most likely miss the remainder of the season. In his prolonged absence, Daniel Sorensen is in line to step into a much larger than expected role throughout the 2017 season.
Berry will not return to Thursday's game against the Patriots after being carted off the field late in the fourth quarter with an Achilles injury. While no word has been given officially by the team, it's easy to think that Berry sustained a significant injury based on his reaction after going down. He managed to register seven total tackles before exiting the game.
Berry (heel) returned to practice Monday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. Berry has been dealing with a sore heel for roughly two weeks, but his presence on the field Monday suggests he's not at risk of missing Week 1. The safety will aim to chase down another Pro Bowl nod this season after accruing 77 tackles, four interceptions and two touchdowns in 2016.
