After the chaos of yesterday’s injury fest the dust seems to have settled in a fairly favorable way. Eric Berry is not practicing today after leaving practice yesterday with a sore ankle. He is not practicing today but he is at practice and is walking around without a noticeable limp.
Chiefs strong safety Eric Berry (ankle) is not practicing. He appears to be walking fine, however, without noticeable limp.

Obviously this is great news for the Chiefs. Even with Berry out of practice it was probably good to get him a little bit of rest anyway. Kansas City’s margin for error in the secondary is very small so keeping Berry fresh and healthy will be a season long priority.
More good news comes in the form of Marcus Cooper, who left practice yesterday with a hamstring injury (and who doesn’t have a hamstring injury?). Cooper is back and practicing today which would indicate the issue was not serious.
Marcus Cooper is suited up and will practice

With as poorly as the secondary has looked in the first two weeks of camp the Chiefs need their best players to be healthy, and at this stage Cooper is KC’s best cornerback.
The hamstring squad is as follows: A.J. Jenkins, Junior Hemingway, Mark Harrison, David Van Dyke, and DeMarcus Van Dyke.
Mike Catapano is missing his third practice due to the flu.
