Chiefs SS Eric Berry (ankle) was downgraded to "DNP" on Thursday.

It's a bad sign for Berry's Week 7 status after he returned to limited practice on Wednesday, but it's possible the Chiefs are just managing his reps. His status will be updated sometime in the next 72 hours.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Chiefs SS Eric Berry has a high-ankle sprain.

If Berry has a real high-ankle sprain, he could be sidelined 4-6 weeks. But as we saw with Jamaal Charles, it's possible the Chiefs could be stretching the definition of "high-ankle sprain," and Berry could be back sooner. Ron Parker will continue to replace Berry opposite Husain Abdullah.

Chiefs SS Eric Berry (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 3.

Berry was hurt in the first half. He's been battling a heel issue for the past couple months, but it's unclear if the two injuries are related. With Berry out for the rest of the game, the Chiefs will turn to Ron Parker and Kurt Coleman next to FS Husain Abdullah. Kansas City has been hit hard by injuries.

Chiefs SS Eric Berry admits his heel injury could "linger."

The All-Pro is locked and loaded for Week 1, but admits there could be some lingering discomfort. "We'll take it day by day, and see how it goes, Berry said. "It might go away, it might linger." It's not a real concern for Berry's 2014 status, but just something to keep in mind if he gets off to a sluggish start.

Chiefs SS Eric Berry (heel tendinitis) will sit out Sunday's preseason game.

Berry also sat out the Chiefs' exhibition opener. "We are going to let it calm down," coach Andy Reid said Thursday. "He’s been battling this thing, so we will let it get settled down before we bring him back." Reid insists Berry will be ready for Week 1, but it's obviously something to monitor over the next three weeks.

Chiefs SS Eric Berry is still dealing with heel tendinitis.

The issue surfaced last week, and flared up again on Tuesday. "It was bothering him," coach Andy Reid said. "He’s got tendinitis back there, and he works a few days and it bothers him so we back off." Berry sat out the Chiefs' preseason opener, and will likely ride the pine again this weekend against the Panthers. It's not yet a concern, but something for IDPers to monitor.
Aug 12 - 10:37 PM

Chiefs SS Eric Berry (heel) is questionable for Thursday's preseason opener.

Berry hasn't practiced the last two days and will likely be held out as a precaution. "We'll see," Andy Reid said when asked if Berry will play. "I'm not going to say that until we see how things work the next couple of days."
