ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- He forgot. For Eric Berry, that was sweet. The best sign of all. He'd cut. And plant. And backpedal. And twist. And jump. It was natural, painless, and free. So much so, that he didn't realize he was doing this on his left knee, the left knee that'd been torn to shreds and built back up again. He'd forgotten about the block that ended his 2011 season, the surgery, the hours of rehab and drudgery, 10 months of football purgatory. "Like before practice, you know, I might have a little butterflies or whatever," the Kansas City Chiefs' Pro Bowl safety told FOXSports.com on Friday night. "But when I got on the field, it was just instincts. And I'd forget. "I'd be like, 'Oh, dang, I just cut off the leg I had surgery on like, full-speed.' So I guess nothing's wrong with me." Berry might've forgotten, but the peanut gallery didn't. A crowd in the thousands gathered to watch the Chiefs' firs...

Fantasy Football 2012: Is Jamaal Charles Still an RB1?

Jamaal Charles reportedly looks as quick as ever

Getty Images The Kansas City Chiefs recently medically cleared running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Better, tight end Tony Moeki for training camp. According to Jim Trotter of SI.com, Charles “looks as quick as ever” after missing most of the 2011 season after tearing his ACL.

Bowe's a no-show in St. Joe

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City's leader in receptions and receiving yards the past three years, was not on the field Friday as the Chiefs opened training camp. Bowe, a Pro Bowler in 2010, was given the franchise tag when he refused to sign the Chiefs' tender. If he eventually comes in and plays this year, as the Chiefs expect, he will get about $9.5 million. The...

Chiefs QB gets a lot of disrespect

This was not the dying moment of an ugly loss. This was a feel-good charity softball game in the middle of the summer, for heaven's sake, when everybody was feeling happy and upbeat. Still the boos rained down on poor Matt Cassel. A few weeks earlier, in another sign of the little regard so many in Kansas City seem to have for their quarterback, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt had...

Chiefs’ Dwayne Bowe does not report for Training Camp

Dwayne Bowe is one of the few unsigned franchise players remaining. He officially became a holdout by skipping the Chiefs’ first day of Training Camp Friday. It’s unclear what Bowe hopes to gain from this as he can’t be signed long term now anyway. He will become a free agent next offseason either way, so all he’s doing is hurting himself, and potentially costing himself...

Baldwin Key to Chiefs Offense

After their first practice session on Friday, the Kansas City Chiefs had all but one of their warriors in camp. With the absence of Dwayne Bowe, it’s time for Jonathan Baldwin to elevate his game to Superhero status.

Jamaal Charles Gets Green Light For Camp

Running back Jamaal Charles has been given the green light to participate at the start of training camp with the Chiefs. Fantasy Spin: This is encouraging as Charles is coming off surgery to repair a torn ACL suffered at the start of last season.

Time to bury the hatchet, Dwayne Bowe

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Because what else are you going to do? Play "Angry Birds" until your thumbs bleed? Learn macram? Audition for "Dancing With The Stars?" Make celebrity cameos on Rob Gronkowski's new reality show? Come to camp, Dwayne Bowe. Come on, man. This is starting to get silly. Look, we get it. You were itching for a long-term deal. Or maybe a ticket...

Take Wait and See Approach on Cassel

It’s become easy to pile on. Offensively last season was not what Chiefs players, the front office or fans envisioned; especially for the teams signal-caller, Matt Cassel. And the fans let him know it.

Center of Defense in the Fold

Scouting for the 2013 NFL Draft: C-USA

Conference USA produced the 11th pick of last April's draft when the Kansas City Chiefs selected defensive tackle Dontari Poe. Marshall's Vinny Curry was next as the Philadelphia Eagles drafted the pass rusher in round two.
