Kansas City Chiefs Injury Report: Eric Berry Participates In Practice


Eric Berry has accomplished what has seemed this season to be the impossible: Participated in four straight Kansas City Chiefs practices.

So we have progress on the Berry practicing front though it does come with the qualifier that Berry was still limited in practice today. He has yet to participate in back-to-back practices in full since the start of the season. He’ll probably need to do that before the Chiefs activate him for a game. As a reminder, Berry has not played since week two of the season and has been battling a heel injury since August.

More good news comes in the form of Chris Owens, who was back at practice today for the first time since suffering a knee injury in San Francisco. He too was limited, but there is obviously some progress being made there. Having a full stable of defensive backs healthy before facing Russell Wilson and Peyton Manning would be very useful.

On the negative side of things, Travis Kelce was limited in practice with his rib injury. Kelce has been dealing with the injury since Kansas City’s win over the Chargers. It seems doubtful the injury will keep him out of Sunday’s game but it is bad enough to limit his reps in practice.

Alex Smith (shoulder), Jamaal Charles (back), Anthony Fasano (foot), Sean Smith (groin), Junior Hemingway (hamstring), Mike McGlynn (foot), and Cyrus Gray (hand) all participated in practice in full. But it should also be noted all were listed on the injury report. While the Chiefs don’t have many significant injury outside of Berry (and the guys we lost for the season), they are a pretty banged up team at key areas.

Donnie Avery still has not returned to practice after having surgery. He’s already been ruled out for Sunday.

Josh Martin and Jamell Fleming did not practice due to hamstring injuries.
