Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl safety, Eric Berry, was carted off the practice field this morning with an apparent lower body injury.
From multiple sources in attendance, via Twitter:

Eric Berry is being carted off the field but he walked to the cart. Looked to be a foot/leg injury but he put full weight on it.

Unfortunately, this is what happens at training camp. Every year, multiple players around the league suffer injuries, sometimes season-enders, during training camp and preseason games.
This doesn’t appear to be too serious, as Berry was able to walk to the cart under his own power. Then again, I always like to point out that Tom Brady walked off the field and down a couple of steps when he suffered a season-ending knee injury at the hands of former Chief Bernard Pollard.
Thankfully, this does not appear to be a knee injury. The biggest worries at this point would be that Berry has a broken foot or the dreaded high ankle sprain.
Hopefully Berry just has a mild sprain and will be back on the field soon. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid will address the media after practice so we could get some more information soon.
