Chiefs Eric Berry injures Achilles tendon in win

Chiefs Eric Berry injures Achilles tendon in win

Berry is done for the season after rupturing his left Achilles tendon in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's victory in New England, according to an announcement Friday.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said in his postgame press conference that Berry had a potential Achilles tear.

"He had an opportunity to talk to the team last night after the game and I know he would be very disappointed if anybody hung their head or let that be an issue", Reid said.

Berry is coming off an All-Pro season previous year, finishing with 62 tackles and four interceptions.

The Kansas City Chiefs left New England with a huge upset win over the New England Patriots, but not everything is sunshine and rainbows for the team.

"You're not going to replace Eric Berry with another Eric Berry".

If this is a serious injury, it's a massive blow to the Chiefs. He began hobbling as the play concluded, was treated on the field and eventually carted off to the locker room. The loss of the five-time Pro Bowl strong safety tests that strength. His return in 2012, at age 24, had Berry exhibiting no signs of slowing down; though he had only one interception that year, he had 10 passes defensed and a combined 86 tackles.

Playing the role of spiritual leader is all Berry can do for the Chiefs for the rest of 2017. Off the field, he has been an inspiration to many of his teammates after he was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in November 2014, but returned to play by the start of the 2015 season.

Even in injury, safety Eric Berry wouldn't relinquish his duties. He got rewarded in the offseason with a new contract worth up to $78 million over six years. To lose Berry would also thin out a secondary that's already lost cornerback Steven Nelson for the first half of the season.
