A Year After Cancer Diagnosis, Eric Berry Cleared To Play Football

Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry passed a physical on the first day of training camp in St. Joseph and that’s big news.

Eric Berry abruptly left the Chiefs in the middle of last season when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Nothing much has been said about Berry’s future since his treatments were completed in June.

But Chiefs coach Andy Reid was encouraged by Berry’s appearance when the five-year veteran reported to training camp.

“He’s kept in himself in good shape believe it or not,” said Chiefs coach Andy Reid. “He has really done a good job there.”

Berry is expected to be on the practice field with the rookies and quarterbacks.
