Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry has been place on the Non-Football Injury (NFI) list for what might be lymphoma. Berry was complaining about chest pain after the game this past Sunday in Oakland and the doctors examined him. A reporter from Kansas City website said the “leading consideration” right now is lymphoma.
Here is Eric Berry full statement.
“I am truly thankful for all of the support from family, friends, coaches, teammates and the entire Chiefs kingdom. At first I was in shock with the diagnosis on Saturday and did not even want to miss a game, but I understand that right now I have to concentrate on a new opponent. I have great confidence in the doctors and the plan they are going to put in place for me to win this fight. I believe that I am in God’s hands and I have great peace in that. I know my coaches and teammates will hold things down here the rest of the season and until I am back running out of the tunnel at Arrowhead. I am so thankful and appreciative of being a part of this franchise and playing in front of the best fans in the NFL. I will be back!”
Berry was on his way to Atlanta on Monday to be examined by specialists at Emory University.
