Today Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid announced that during last night’s win over the New England Patriots, safety Eric Reid ruptured his Achilles’ tendon.
During the game, three-time first-team All-Pro held up coverage against Rob Gronkowski, but went down in the mid-fourth never to return.
The loss of Berry is a massive blow to the Chiefs’ team and find a replacement will not be easy.
“You’re not going to replace Eric Berry with another Eric Berry,” Reid said, via Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com.
Berry signed a six-year contract in February worth $78 million.
This Achilles’ tendon injury isn’t his first season off the time. Back in 2014, when Berry was 28, he battled and survived Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer.
