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 and Charles had already established themselves as stars in 2010, and Moeaki appeared to have that potential before ripping up his knee in Kansas City’s final preseason game. He caught 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie, combining sure hands with an ability to stretch defenses.
Fully cleared for training camp, Moeaki will get another crack at becoming Kansas City’s first elite tight end since Tony Gonzalez left town. General manager Scott Pioli’s Patriots ties were on display again in the offseason, when he signed Kevin Boss to play alongside Moeaki in two-tight end formations.
