Chiefs coach not worried about Eric Berry's injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (8/14/14) Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters Thursday he will hold safety Eric Berry (heel) out of Sunday's preseason game against the Panthers. Though, Reid said he's not worried about Berry's injury.
"He wants to be out there every day so we let it calm down a little bit, then we put him out and it came back," Reid said. "So now we are going to get it where it needs to be and then we go there. There are guys that can do it like Dwayne Bowe has been out here and his finger is shot. It’s been thrown out of place about 15 times, so now he’s not catching the ball but he’s getting his work done. You can practice with that kind of thing, it’s hard to do that when it’s your feet. But I give credit to some of these guys that have pushed through some of the injuries, but that one there you just have to back off."

The Chiefs DST was expected to improve in 2013, but no one could have predicted a No. 2 finish in Fantasy points in standard leagues. Only the Seahawks DST was a better unit, but the Chiefs DST led the way in touchdowns with 11. That will be hard to duplicate, so get ready for a downturn in production, but they still managed 21 interceptions, 47 sacks and 15 fumble recoveries. The Chiefs do have plenty of standout defenders with Derrick Johnson, Justin Houston, Tamba Hali and Eric Berry, and they spent a first-round pick on rookie pass rusher Dee Ford, so they should remain a No. 1 unit. Plan on drafting the Chiefs DST with a late-round pick in all leagues.
