Berry (heel) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Berry never had much hope of suiting up in the Chiefs' second game of the season after failing to practice all week and carrying a doubtful designation into the contest. With Berry out of commission, Eric Murray and Ron Parker are expected to serve as the Chiefs' starting safety tandem. Both tallied nine tackles apiece in the season-opening win over the Chargers and could continue to deliver IDP utility while Berry is sidelined.
Berry missed the Chiefs' Week 1 contest as he continues to battle a sore heel likely related to the torn Achilles suffered in 2018. His marked progress is certainly a positive sign, though no word on a potential return date has surfaced yet.
Berry (heel) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Head coach Andy Reid reinforced Berry's doubtful tag Friday, saying that the cornerback "probably won't" play in the season opener. Berry has been nursing the heel injury since mid-August, and while it remains unclear what the ailment stems from, the defensive back will need at least another week off to continue his recovery.
Berry (heel) will not dress for Friday's preseason game against the Falcons, Nate Taylor of The Athletic Kansas City reports.
It's unclear if the heel soreness Berry is experiencing relates to his Achilles injury from a season ago, but the team already knows he can play and has little incentive to rush him back to action. Berry's next opportunity to dress arrives next Saturday against the Bears, while Eric Murray and Leon McQuay are candidates for additional playing time in his absence.
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.
