#Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirms the fears: Star safety Eric Berry is done for the season with a ruptured Achilles.
That sucks

He is any easy guy to root for, having beat cancer and everything.

Devastating loss for them. Berry is the leader of that defense and really the leader of that team. Fantastic player, great story.. hate to see a guy like that go down.

We do play KC this year, though...
Brutal.

Eric Berry is a superstar and an easy guy to cheer.

This also makes Landon Collins the best Safety in the NFL.
Man, what a buzzkill for the Chiefs

off a great opening night win.
Man, he really can't catch a break

Awful. Berry is so good that his loss literally  
Jimmy Googs : 9/8/2017 1:26 pm : link
can change the makeup of the entire defense and gameplans.

Hoping our stars make it thru the season...
While I wish him the best,

the reality is that's a horrible injury and very difficult to fix. He'll be lucky to return, and he'll likely go the way of Sehorn or Cruz, but faster.

Sad news.

...so it's sad to see they won't be a full strength. *wink to karma gods*

I'm either being serious, or not.
That sucks

The guy can't catch a break.
This really hurts the Chiefs  
gmen9892 : 9/8/2017 1:31 pm : link
Chances to actually contend this year. You see what he could do by making game changing plays and taking players like Gronk totally out of the game. Stinks.
NJT!

I can't remember a single Giant who had much of a career after that injury. Mykkele Thompson. Andre Brown. Tim Carter. Bruce Johnson.
Huge loss. Chiefs had to be a strong contender in the AFC

This is the type of loss that can ruin a season before it gets started. Could have been an AFCCG preview. Truly shitty.
That

is horrible. Best wishes to him.

Thats actually not true (sorry)
These guys have a lot because of their prowess  
joeinpa : 9/8/2017 1:56 pm : link
As a football player. But these injuries can be so cruel.

What a crummy break for that kid and that team.
That sucks for him.  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 9/8/2017 2:04 pm : link
I guess it's a good thing he got that mega contract back in February.

Well, he did beat cancer so that's kind of catching a break
Bummer

Very disappointed in this news.
Horrible News

Great player to watch, Field General with a great on field IQ.

Yeah, but he actually had to *get* the cancer first - so that's kind of a wash.
That sucks ....

saw the replay ... looked like he pulled up after very little contact with the blocker.
