In an interview with GoVolsXtra.com, Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry indicated that his knee is good and he was able to do some drills with players from the University of Tennessee football team.
“I’m good,” Berry said when asked about his knee Friday. “I actually had the privilege to go out (Thursday) and do one-on-ones with guys on the (UT) team. It was very, very competitive, very good.”
Berry stated that he’s “very close” to being 100 percent healthy.
“Right now, everything looks like it’s progressing,” Berry said. “Whenever we’re progressing, I’m happy. As long as we’re not moving backwards or just staying the same, then I’m cool, and I feel like we’re progressing right now. I was in the (UT) complex (Thursday). It was nothing but positive energy. The guys seem very confident about this season. They’ve been working hard. I can tell, and I’m looking forward to the season.”
Berry has the ability to be one of the top safeties in the NFL and in order for him to come back and make an impact this season, he needs to make sure he’s fully healthy.
