Kansas City Chiefs Lose S Eric Berry For Season, According To Report

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without star safety Eric Berry for the rest of the season as he tore his ACL in yesterday's game against the Buffalo Bills, according to the NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. The Chiefs lost the game, 41-7.

Berry tore his ACL early in the first quarter on Sunday and had Jon McGraw take his place in the secondary. McGraw is likely to draw starts at safety with Berry out for the season.

This is a big blow to the Chiefs' season, and if their play against the Bills was any indication this could be a long season for them. Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick torched the Chiefs for four touchdown passes, but that might have happened even if Berry was in the game.

Berry was the fifth overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He went on to make 72 tackles and intercepted four passes for 102 yards and a touchdown. He played every snap on defense in 2010, as well. All this resulted in being named to the Pro Bowl.
