Eric Berry misses Wednesday practice, in question for Saturday’s divisional

Guess who’s day to day again.

Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry is not practicing Wednesday, the second day of work as the team prepares to take on the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday afternoon in the AFC’s divisional round.

Berry missed practice on Friday, December 28, before he was eventually held out of the Chiefs’ final game of the season against the Oakland Raiders. Berry practiced limitedly to start this week on Tuesday, which many felt was a good sign, but he could not participate on Wednesday as he deals with his lingering heel injury.

“It’s difficult from the standpoint of he’s a real critical part of our team,” defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said when asked about the uncertainty surrounding the three-time All-Pro. “He’s an outstanding player. He’s one of our true leaders, the guys rally around him, so I think that part is always hard. You get caught up in different things in the season. But also, if you stick back for a second, you say, ‘Man, this is really hard on this guy, too, as a player. This is something he loves to do. He’s been really good at it, and as difficult as it is on us as a defensive unit or us as a team, I think for him, it’s really challenging.’

“So it’s just what it is. There’s not a lot you can do about it, and every week we’ve got our fingers crossed and hope that he can make it back and go. It’s truly—I know you guys get tired of hearing this—it really is a day to day to day thing here right now, the way it’s playing out. You just got to stay in there and go and figure out how to get other guys ready in case he can’t go.”

Berry was originally held out of the Chiefs’ first 13 games with what the team described as a sore heel, though reports, which have never been confirmed (nor denied) said Berry has what is called a “Haglund’s deformity.”

Berry eventually returned to the lineup to play 30 snaps Week 15 against the Los Angeles Chargers and played 69 snaps Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks before what has appeared to be some sort of setback.

Sutton was asked Wednesday about who would replace Berry and linebacker Dorian O’Daniel, who hasn’t practiced at all this week, if they couldn’t play against the Colts.

Without Berry in a must-win game against the Raiders when it came to playoff home-field advantage, the safety snap count breakdown was as follows: Daniel Sorensen (63), Eric Murray (33), Jordan Lucas (32) and Ron Parker (6).

In the above breakdown, it is important to note that Sorensen and Lucas earned the start. Lucas suffered a stinger, and the Chiefs eventually removed starters in a 35-3 blowout.

It remains to be seen who the Chiefs start against the Colts if Berry cannot play once again.

A note on Dorian O’Daniel

#Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub on LB Dorian O’Daniel, who has missed two practices this week: “He’s a four-phase starter for us. He’s an important guy, so we’re keeping an eye on that one, pretty close.”

“I wouldn’t tell you,” he initially said with a smile. “We have to work guys in, obviously, and just see where guys are. The one good thing is you’re at the point of the season where if you do have to miss some reps and you get better toward to the end of the week, this is probably the time to do it. We just have to kind of roll guys through, which we try to do, anyway, but when you have a guy in question, you have to say, ‘OK,’ because that usually affects somebody else.

“Sometimes that affects special teams ... It’s going to affect Dave (Toub) and what he’s putting together, so you got to kind of stay on top of that as a total staff, too. But we just got to slide and we’ve got some different options, but we kind of have to wait and see where it’s at.”

We get it. Berry can do no wrong. There is no point in arguing with you about anything related to Berry.

I agree with Marcellus. I don't see how you can get mad at a player for getting hurt. How some of you can joke about one of our players getting injured blows my mind. Let someone come and and put a bat to your ankle and we will see how funny you think it is then.

At an All Pro level I might add. They could have gotten him cheaper the year before and been a year farther down the road on the contract.

Chiefs screwed this up in many ways.
Who got the money instead?

People tend to lack sympathy when he makes a ton of money and he can't play cause he's sore. It's the suck it up and deal with it attitude...the same attitude that a lot of people apply to themselves when they go to work everyday.

Berry is still by all accounts the emotional leader of this team. If the players had any doubts about his toughness or willingness to play through pain when possible, I doubt they'd still flock to him.

I'm gonna go with their assessment over some dudes on an internet forum.

And why do players get pissed about the tag? If the GM comes to me and says, "I need to shore up this and this and take care of this other contract which is due right now, but I'm going to pay you more in guaranteed money for ONE year than you would see in one year of a 5 year contract, and then we'll get you signed before the start of the following season", why the fuck the bad blood?

So afraid of an injury that you can't make it one more season on your initial contract? You know, the one you SIGNED?

Oh, I believe Berry is still the leader of this defense. They very rarely, if ever, show up.

Of course, us dudes on the internet have basically contributed the same amount of effort to the defense as Berry has, so there is that.
