Chiefs lose Berry with ACL injury

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Kansas City Chiefs received the worse news that they did not want to hear. They have lost Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry for the season.

Berry will miss the rest of the 2011 season after he tore his ACL in his left knee. The NFL Network was the first to report the news.

He was injured in Sunday’s game with the Buffalo Bills. He was injured on a block by Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson.

The injury, according to ESPN, happened on the third offensive play of the game.

“I won’t go into details, but I will say it appears he will be out for the season,” Chiefs head coach Todd Haley said. “I know we just lost one of our best players and that hurts.”

Following the injury, he was helped to the team’s sideline. Despite being injury, he attempted to return for the team’s next defensive series.

He went down on the first play of that series, then the trainers had to help him off the field.

Berry is the latest injury the Chiefs have suffered. The team lost tight end Tony Moeaki to a season-ending ACL injury during the preseason.

Brandon Siler was lost during training camp, as he suffered a torn Achilles tendon. Jon Baldwin is hampered by an injury and hasn’t been able to play yet.

“I’ve said it many times, injuries happen,” Haley said. “People are going to go down. I’m sure across the league, a number of guys were probably lost for the season yesterday.”
