Eric Berry was back on the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice field Wednesday for the first time since early in training camp, though it remains unclear when the star safety will be ready for games.
Berry tore his Achilles’ tendon in last season’s opener, but was back on the practice field over the summer. He began training camp, but then was sidelined by a troublesome heel problem.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid has maintained all season that Berry was “day to day,” even as it stretched to week to week and month to month. And while Reid said Berry would work in a limited capacity Wednesday he made it clear that the Chiefs would be cautious in getting him up to speed.
The Chiefs (9-2) are coming off their bye week. They visit the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
