The Kansas City Chiefs (11-3) will play what is essentially a must-win game in one of the NFL’s toughest environments in Seattle on Sunday night. The good news is they should get more snaps out of star safety Eric Berry, who played in last week’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers (11-3) for the first time in more than a year.

Berry was not limited in practice for the first time since 2017 on Wednesday and Thursday. He played 30 snaps, all in the first half, against the Chargers. When he left the game at halftime as a precaution, the difference was noticeable; the Chiefs forced two turnovers and held LA to 7 points in the first half, but gave up 22 points in the second half.

Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton would not commit to a specific snap count for Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks (8-6), but Berry should play significantly more, per the Kansas City Star.

“We haven’t really talked about exactly, is he going to play 40 plays this week or 50 plays,” Sutton said, per the Star. “I think just play it by ear a little bit, see where they come about.”

Berry tore his Achilles in a Week 1 game against the New England Patriots last season. He missed the first 13 games of 2018 with lingering heel problems.
