S Eric Berry doing well in cancer recovery-- Thu Jan 22 5:00 pm --
Missed final five games with Hodgkin lymphoma
Chiefs GM John Dorsey and team chairman Clark Hunt flew into Atlanta to visit S Eric Berry, who is battling Hodgkin lymphoma.
"We spent two hours together over (at) his parents' house ... he was laughing, he was in good spirits," Dorsey said. "He looked great. He was E.B. He was talking about 'ball."(Kansas City Star)
FF Today's Take:Obviously, Berry's recovery timeline is up in the air, but a return to the field at some point in the near future does sound promising. Berry finished at minus-1.7 overall in Pro Football Focus' grading this year after recording a plus-14.3 in 2013.
Chiefs lose S Eric Berry for season-- Mon Nov 24 5:35 pm --
FF Today's Take:We wish him the best. Chiefs ESPN Nation reporter Adam Teicher tweeted earlier in the day that a MRI "showed a mass in his chest" and that while there has been no definite diagnosis, Kansas City thinks he has lymphoma. From a football perspective, the Chiefs may have to reinsert Marcus Cooper as a starting corner after moving Ron Parker from safety a few weeks ago.
