Chiefs Safety Eric Berry May Have Lymphoma

Shocking news: star safety Eric Berry will miss the rest of the season with what the team fears is lymphoma.

Today the following statement was made by Eric Berry:

“I am truly thankful for all of the support from family, friends, coaches, teammates and the entire Chiefs kingdom. At first I was in shock with the diagnosis on Saturday and did not even want to miss a game, but I understand that right now I have to concentrate on a new opponent. I have great confidence in the doctors and the plan they are going to put in place for me to win this fight. I believe that I am in God’s hands and I have great peace in that. I know my coaches and teammates will hold things down here the rest of the season and until I am back running out of the tunnel at Arrowhead. I am so thankful and appreciative of being a part of this franchise and playing in front of the best fans in the NFL. I will be back!”

Berry was the fifth overall pick of the 2010 draft. He is a three-time Pro Bowler and was a first-team All-Pro last season. Our thought and best wishes go out to Eric and his family. Top Stories
