Berry (knee) was a full participant during Friday's practice and should be good to go Sunday against the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Berry's knee issue appears to be behind him as he'll be out on the field in full force Sunday. In the case of any setback, Daniel Sorensen figures to be his primary backup at strong safety.

Berry (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Berry's no-limitation practice Thursday indicates that he should be ready to play Sunday. It was suspected that he would play even if limited throughout the week, but now that he's fully healthy it would take a setback to his knee to alter his game status.

Berry is expected to be ready to play in Week 1 against the Chargers, according to coach Andy Reid.

EDGE Analysis

Berry only returned to the team Sunday following a holdout, and although he didn't play at all during the preseason, the time between now and the Chiefs' Sept. 11 opener should be enough for him to get up to speed and assume his usual role. After missing all of the 2014 season while fighting cancer, Berry incredibly earned his fourth Pro Bowl selection while playing all 16 games last year. Overall, Berry posted 61 tackles and two interceptions, and will surely be motivated for another big season considering he'll play under the franchise tag.

Berry officially signed his franchise tag Sunday but coach Andy Reid doesn't anticipate him playing in Thursday's preseason finale against the Packers, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Berry is expected to receive plenty of time during practice to get prepared for Week 1 against the Chargers. Assuming all goes as planned, he should be line for another strong season in 2016.

Berry plans to end his current holdout and return to the team Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Berry hasn't been involved throughout the entirety of training camp thus far as he elected not to sign his $10.8 million franchise tender for an extended period of time. Given he intends to return Sunday, his Week 1 status should be solidified without question, but it's not fully clear at this point if he'll get any reps during the team's final preseason game in early September. The relatively quiet nature of Berry's holdout figures to have little impact on his relationship with the rest of the team moving forward.

According to Chiefs' General Manager John Dorsey, Berry (contract) is expected to be on the field Week 1 against the Chargers, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports. "I haven't talked to Eric one-on-one about when he's going to show up. Knowing what a prideful professional he is, I think he will show up at the appropriate time," Dorsey said Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Berry has been absent from training camp as he looks to negotiate a long-term extension. The All-Pro safety has yet to sign his $10.8 million franchise tender and is expected to miss the entirety of the preseason as a result. While Berry and Chiefs aren't currently seeing eye-to-eye, Dorsey seems confident that Berry will be with the team to open the season. Until them, look for Daniel Sorensen (foot) and Eric Murray to take the majority of first-team reps.

Berry (contract) is expected to miss most or all of the preseason, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Berry can skip training camp and the preseason without incurring fines, as he's yet to sign his $10.8 million franchise tender. The deadline for a long-term extension already passed, but he may be hoping to negotiate a higher salary, or might be unhappy with how previous negotiations were handled. It's also possible he just hopes to avoid an injury, in which case he'd likely rejoin the team by mid-to-late August. Regardless of how this plays out, Berry is unlikely to continue his holdout into the regular season.

Berry does not plan on reporting to the start of training camp, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Berry has yet to sign his $10.8 million franchise tender, thereby allowing him to miss training camp without incurring any fines. The deadline for a long-term extension has already passed, but Berry may be seeking other concessions from the team. He figures to eventually join his teammates at camp, though it could be a couple weeks.

Berry and the Chiefs will not reach agreement on a long-term extension ahead of Friday's deadline, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Berry will consequently earn $10.8 million this season while playing under Kansas City's franchise tag and become a free agent next offseason. After missing the entire 2014 season while fighting cancer, Berry incredibly returned last season to earn his fourth Pro Bowl selection. Not only that, but Berry posted a career-best 92 tackles (77 solo) and four interceptions. With the allure of a long-term contract looming, look for a motivated Berry to pick up where he left off this year.
