The top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs want to reverse decades of home playoff misery on Saturday, but they might have to do it without their best player in the defensive backfield. Former All-Pro safety Eric Berry missed practice on two consecutive days to end the week and his status for the AFC matchup with the Indianapolis Colts is uncertain.

The team’s injury report officially lists Berry as “Questionable” for the game. He missed the last 15 games of the 2017 season with a torn Achilles and the first 13 games of this season with lingering heel problems. Once he came back, his snap count was limited in two games and he sat out the season finale against Oakland.

Berry was limited on the first day of practice this week, but sitting out practice after that could be seen as a setback for the star safety.

The two other starters with injury concerns heading into the divisional round looked slightly more promising, according to the injury report. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins and running back Spencer Ware were limited all week and are officially questionable, but they did not miss practice.

 

The Chiefs have been able to score in bunches thanks to contributions from backups like Demarcus Robinson, Chris Conley and Damien Williams, but having all hands on deck will help against a Colts defense that shut down the Houston Texans last week.
