Eric Berry will be an inspiration to Chiefs teammates


SEPTEMBER 2015 – Safety Eric Berry shocked the world—including his Kansas City Chiefs teammates and coaches—when he showed up the first day of training camp in St. Joseph, ready to play. Just 247 days after the devastating news that he had Hodgkin lymphoma, Berry was back on the field.

He is the inspiration for the 2015 Chiefs, whether or not he makes a single tackle or breaks up a single pass.

“It gives me chills,” said linebacker Justin Houston, who gained notoriety last season after recording sacks by lifting his jersey and pointing to Berry’s No. 29 handwritten on his T-shirt.
