Berry (Achilles) has returned to full participation in practice, The Athletic reports.
Berry was present for the beginning of offseason workouts and has now progressed to full participation in drills. It remains to be seen how effective he will be in his return from an injury that can have a major impact on explosiveness. Regardless, the veteran should serve as a quarterback in the secondary and has a history of recovering from major setbacks after battling his way back from Hodgkin's Lymphoma earlier in his career.
Berry (Achilles) was present for the beginning of offseason workouts, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Berry's appearance at the team's offseason workouts indicates the safety is closing in on a complete recovery from the ruptured Achilles' tendon that derailed his 2017 season. Those close to the team will likely monitor every step and breath Berry takes, but with five months still to go before the regular season kicks off it appears Berry is finally getting his feet back underneath him.
Berry (Achilles) should be back for beginning of the 2018 season, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.
Berry ruptured his Achilles against the Patriots in Week 1 last season but is already back running drills on the field, as a video posted by his agent Chad Speck shows. Barring any setbacks, the veteran safety should be available for OTAs this spring.
Head coach Andy Reid said Berry (Achilles) is "doing well" in his rehabilitation.
Berry, who ruptured an Achilles tendon in the season opener, was initially slapped with a six-month timetable for recovery. Considering he went down in September, the three-time All-Pro safety seems likely to be available for OTAs in late April if he continues to maneuver through his rehab setback-free.
Berry (Achilles) is expected to be out for six months, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
As disheartening as this is for Berry, the injury doesn't appear to be career threatening. 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.
