Eric Berry Injury: Torn ACL Ends Kansas City Chiefs Safety's Season

Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry will miss the rest of the season due to a torn ACL, according to a report.

Horrible news for the Kansas City Chiefs: star safety Eric Berry is done for the year after withstanding a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills.

It had been known Berry was attempting to recover from some sort of leg injury, but it was believed at first to only be a case of cramps, with some speculating he could miss a couple weeks. However, reports out of Kansas City got worse as Monday went along, until NFL.com's Jason La Canfora broke the news:

This is pretty devastating news for a young defense that looked to Berry as its best player. The Chiefs already had to find a way to bounce back from a big loss at home, and now they'll have to do so without one of their primary weapons.
