09/08/17 - S Eric Berry left Thursday's 42-27 victory in the fourth quarter on a motorized cart. Coach Andy Reid said he likely tore his Achilles tendon. Berry was in coverage downfield checking TE Rob Gronkowski when he slowed and both legs stiffened. "I'm on a bit of a low right now because my guy EB is down," TE Travis Kelce said. "I love him to death; he's our fearless leader, and to see him go down in the first game breaks your heart."
09/08/17 - S Eric Berry will miss the remainder of the season for the Chiefs after rupturing his left Achilles' tendon in Thursday's season-opening victory over the Patriots.

The Chiefs feared a major injury and an MRI exam conducted Friday confirmed the seriousness. Berry had four interceptions -- returning two for touchdowns -- along with 77 tackles last season. He has returned five of his 14 career interceptions for touchdowns, and also has 5.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in 87 NFL games (85 starts).
