Fans and media attending Thursday morning’s practice at the Kansas City Chiefs’ training camp were buzzing after Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry was taken to the locker room on a cart after suffering what looked like an injury to his leg or ankle.

Berry appeared to hurt himself during the individual drills and limped to the trainer's tent located just off the field. He seemed to try to "walk off" the injury, but had a noticeable limp. Trainers called in the cart and drove Berry up the hill to the locker room. A few days ago in camp, Berry missed some practice time after suffering a dislocated finger, but he returned right away after that.

The Chiefs came into camp critically thin at the safety position, but were hopeful that Berry and second-year player Sanders Commings could man the fort for the season. However, Commings injured his foot early in camp and has not returned to the field. This is after he missed all of 2013 with an injury.

There has been no word from the Chiefs about the extent of Berry’s injury. Rookie free agent Daniel Sorensen replaced Berry when the squad began team practice.
