(11/24/14) Chiefs safety Eric Berry has been placed in the non-football injury list with a mass on the right side of his chest, team trainer Rick Burkholder told reporters on Monday. Burkholder told reporters Berry did not experience discomfort until the Oakland game on Thursday.
The team believes what Berry has right now is lymphoma. He is expected to go to Emory University hospital for further evaluation. According to coach Andy Reid, Berry addressed his teammates before leaving the team.
Berry released the following statement: "I am truly thankful for all of the support from family, friends, coaches, teammates and the entire Chiefs kingdom. At first I was in shock with the diagnosis on Saturday and did not even want to miss a game, but I understand that right now I have to concentrate on a new opponent. I have great confidence in the doctors and the plan they are going to put in place for me to win this fight. I believe that I am in God’s hands and I have great peace in that. I know my coaches and teammates will hold things down here the rest of the season and until I am back running out of the tunnel at Arrowhead. I am so thankful and appreciative of being a part of this franchise and playing in front of the best fans in the NFL. I will be back!"
Chiefs DST struggles in win over Seattle
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/14) The Chiefs DST unit couldn't get off the field in week 11 against the Seahawks, but still came away with a 24-20 win Sunday.
The Chiefs defense stayed on the field for 36 minutes of gametime, and ended up ceding 372 yards of total offense to the Seahawks as a result. However, the Seahawks found the end zone just twice in the game, a good showing for the Chiefs, all things considered. They failed to force a single turnover, however, and came away from the game with just two sacks.
The Chiefs have been a solid DST option of late, having scored at least 9 Fantasy points in four of the last five, so Sunday's game isn't all bad. They face a better matchup in Week 12, with the Raiders on the way Thursday.

(11/15/14) The Chiefs have signed defensive end Allen Bailey to a four-year, $25 million extension, a source told Pro Football Talk on Saturday. Bailey was a situational pass rusher in his first three seasons with the Chiefs. In his first year as a full-time starter, Bailey has registered 27 combined tackles and four sacks.
Chiefs keep scoring down again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/2/14) The Chiefs defense, which limited the Rams to just seven points last week, was nearly as effective with another favorable matchup Week 9 against the Jets, allowing 10 points on 364 yards.
But while the Chiefs had seven sacks against the Rams, they had just three in this one. They also no takeaways after returning an interception for a touchdown last week.
Still, if you started the Chiefs DST in Fantasy, you're happy with this performance, as you are most every week you start it. Its matchup Week 10 at Buffalo isn't quite as favorable, but it's been reliable enough for you to start it in Fantasy regardless.
