Eric Berry has left the game in the fourth quarter against the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football on NBC. According to the early game reports, it’s being described as an ‘Achilles injury.’
The Chiefs medical staff were examining his left Achilles tendon. He was carted off the field and will not return.
Head coach Andy Reid will likely update his condition following the game. With the medical staff coming onto the field, it does not look good.
If it is a torn Achilles tendon, Berry will be lost for the season. Then, if it’s true, following tests, then the team will have to try to replace him, which is definitely going to be tough.
During training camp, he was out a little more than two weeks with a sore heel. He did not play at all in the preseason.
He has been lost for the season before. In 2014, he had to miss the season after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After going through countless chemotherapy treatments, he returned for the 2015 season.
In addition, Berry was also lost for the 2011 season. In the first game of the season, he was lost following a torn ACL injury.
When he’s been healthy, he’s been selected to five Pro Bowls.
