There’s good injury news for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Eric Berry, the safety who made the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2010 but suffered a torn ACL in Week One of 2011, says he’s ready to go right now. Berry told Adam Schein of Sirius XM NFL Radio that he’s 100 percent physically.
The absence of Berry last year was a big blow to the Chiefs’ defense, and having him on the field playing the way he did as a rookie would represent a major step forward for Kansas City.
Berry suffered the injury when he was hit low by Bills receiver Stevie Johnson on a running play. Berry has hinted that there might have been a bounty on him, although he hasn’t come right out and said so, and Johnson insists that there wasn’t, and that he felt terrible about hurting Berry.
