We should find out more about Eric Berry’s status Wednesday
Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is expected to speak to the media Wednesday at approximately 11:40 a.m. Arrowhead Time.Prior to Reid’s address Authentic Chris Jones Jersey , Chiefs head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder will take the podium to address all current Chiefs injuries. Burkholder does not take questions.The No. 1 injury concern on the minds of Chiefs fans right now is the health of starting safety Eric Berry, who has not practiced since August 11 in St. Joseph due to a sore heel.The Chiefs have been mum on the topic for a while now, but what changes Wednesday is the beginning of the Week 1 injury report. If a player is out of practice or limited, that information is available to the public.The good news is that Burkholder is typically very clear on where injuries of the team stand, and he usually provides a timetable. In addition to updates on Berry, I expect we’ll hear the latest news on S Daniel Sorensen, wide receiver Byron Pringle and perhaps even cornerbacks Step Durham and Keith Reaser.We are already aware that Sorensen is expected to miss regular-season games, but general manager Brett Veach mentioned he could play half the season on cutdown day.That being said, the main focus for fans, media and analysts on Wednesday will be what is going on with Berry.What we saw from Patrick Mahomes against the Chicago Bears Patrick Mahomes grabbed the league’s (and country’s) attention last week after his 69-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill.Whether or not he’d be able to make plays like that the standard was a question on people’s minds heading into the Chiefs’ game against the Chicago Bears Saturday. So, how’d Mahomes do in Week 3? Let’s recap. Mahomes and the offense entered the game down 7-0 following a strong opening drive from the Chicago Bears, who were able to capitalize on a weak, unorganized Chiefs defense early. In his first play (11:16, Q1) Womens Sammy Watkins Jersey , Mahomes threw a short pass to Sammy Watkins for 15 yards, marking Watkins’ long overdue first catch of the preseason. That play was followed with a short right pass to Chris Conley for four yards. Mahomes and the offense wasted no time closing in on the Bears lead, getting points on the board after Mahomes read the blitz and quickly found a wide open Kareem Hunt on a swing route for a 19-yard touchdown to tie the game up at 7-7.First drive recap: 5 plays, 74 yards, 4:14To open the second drive, Mahomes and the offense took the field trailing 14-7 after a 29-yard touchdown pass from Chase Daniel to Kevin White (2:19) put Chicago ahead once again. Mahomes hit a pass deep right to Travis Kelce for 26 yards on his first play of the second drive and followed that up with a pass short left to Hill for four yards. With 1:25 remaining in the first quarter, Mahomes went 6 for 6 for 95 yards. In the final minute of the first quarter, Mahomes found Hill again, this time pushed outside back, at the Chicago 32 for 16 yards. Unable to connect and finish the quarter strong, Mahomes threw an incomplete pass short right. (15:00, Q2) Bears defensive blitz forces Mahomes to throw an incomplete pass short right to Watkins. Second drive recap: 7 plays, 49-yards, 2:26Kansas City couldn’t quite find the end zone to close out the second drive but cut the deficit with a 47-yard field goal by Butker — Bears 14 http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.com/eric-fisher-jersey , Chiefs 10. After two drives, Mahomes was 7 for 9 for 111, threw a touchdown and five of his seven passes picked up 10-plus yards for the Chiefs. No-69 yard bomb or anything relatively close to it, but an overall strong performance from the young quarterback that was free from sacks and turnovers. However, Mahomes didn’t see such success in the second quarter. He only added 14 yards and went only 50 percent (3 of 6) in passing. He finished the half 10 of 15 for 125 yards and a touchdown. Of his four incomplete passes, three were to Watkins. At the end of the half, Chicago led Kansas City, 21 to 10. Shaking off an average second quarter, Mahomes opened the half strong, going a perfect 8 for 8 for a majority of the third quarter in passing before throwing an incomplete pass short middle to Demarcus Robinson — his final play of the day before Chad Henne took the field.While Mahomes didn’t end his Week 3 performance quite like he did in Week 2, the numbers on his stat sheet were fairly promising. He completed 18 of 24 passes for 196 yards and a touchdown, as well as a 112.5 passer rating.
