The Kansas City Chiefs placed SS Eric Berry (illness) on the Non-Football Illness list Monday, Nov. 24, according to a source. Berry will miss the rest of the season. Berry underwent an MRI on his chest, which revealed a mass in his chest. The team believes he has lymphoma, but there is no definite diagnosis.
Huddle Up: A tough story coming out of K.C today, and first here's hoping for the best for Berry. In the meantime, it'll mean the Chiefs' secondary will have to adjust on the fly without their leader, who's had 37 total tackles and two passes defensed in 6 games this season. Ron Parker is slated to take over at SS with Husain Abdullah at FS.

Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry (ankle) is dealing with a high ankle sprain, according to a league source. Berry suffered the injury in Week 2 and sat out in Week 3. Head coach Andy Reid said Berry 'most likely' will return to practice Thursday, Sept. 25. Reid doesn't think the injury is related to Berry's heel tendonitis that caused him to miss preseason games.
Huddle Up: It's been a tough go for the Pro Bowl safety and his IDP owners, but see if the extra day of rest -- the Chiefs don't play until Monday night -- will work to Berry's benefit in Week 4.

Kansas City Chiefs SS Eric Berry left practice early Tuesday, Aug. 12, due to tendinitis in his injured heels. 'He works a few days and then it bothers him and it inflames a bit. Then we back off,' head coach Andy Reid said.
Huddle Up: This sounds anything but good with the All-Pro already in and out of practice in the opening weeks of the preseason. Definitely stay tuned . . .
