Eric Berry- 65 tackles; 2 sacks; 1 forced fumble; 4 int
Eric Berry made history when he returned to the field this past season after beating Hodgkin lymphoma. Berry played inspired football on his way to an All-Pro selection and an appearance in the Pro-Bowl.
While playing well, Berry’s numbers were not as great as they maybe could of been. His one on one coverage was suspect at best, especially against New England in the divisional playoffs. Berry will improve his coverage on tight-ends this season and get back to his ball hawking ways to get more interceptions and tackles.
Justin Houston– (10 games) 35 tackles; 9.5 sacks; 2 forced fumbles; 1 int
Houston is recovering from an ACL repair done in February and by all previous accounts of ACL repair, should not be able to play at all this season. The hopes of the team and the fans rest on what Houston showed in his workout videos shortly after his surgery.
He can already push himself beyond what is expected for a man recovering but whether he will be ready for season will have to wait another 80 days. Should he return to the field by the time the Chiefs travel to Indianapolis then he will tear it up as great as he always does .
