Description: Chiefs SS Eric Berry has been dealing with a heel issue that may keep him out of the first preseason game, according to beat writer Terez Paylor.
Insight: Berry has missed the past two practices, but this problem shouldn't effect his regular season availability. He totaled 73 tackles, 3.5 sacks, three interceptions and two fumble recoveries last season.

Insight: Huge blow to a defense that just got torched by the Bills on Sunday. Jon McGraw took Berry's place and looks to be the SS going forward for KC. This will negatively effect KC's run and pass defense for sure.

Insight: This doesn't appear to be an erroneous report and it does look like Berry could miss significant time. Berry had to be helped off the field and didn't return to the game. This could be a major blow to his IDP owners as they are going to have to hit the wire for a replacement.
