Chiefs put S Eric Berry on NFI non-football Illness, which means he is out for the year,
Huge loss for a Kansas City Chiefs defense that had been surging into their matchup with Oakland. Berry has been every bit as good as advertised since being taken 5th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft, as he has quarterbacked the Chiefs defense since day one. This will be a huge blow for the Chiefs who have been relying on their defense to win games for them, now it appears that backup safety Kurt Coleman will be taking over the starting duties in Berry's absence for the remainder of the season.

Berry had an MRI done and they found a mass in his chest. He will undergo a barrage of tests to determine its nature and risk to his health as it is already being speculated asd lymphoma. We wish him nothing but the best here and hope for a strong recovery.
