Andy Reid didn't even need someone to ask the question before he supplied the answer to what every Chiefs fan in Kansas City had been wondering throughout their bye week."I really don't have any news on Eric Berry Womens Andrew Whitworth Jersey ," he said.Cue the sound of a deflating balloon.Still, there have been signs the Chiefs' highly paid star safety could return to practice this week for the first time since early in training camp. Reid has said nothing more than Berry is getting better every day, but he has been more visible around the team than the past few months.The timing of his return this week also would make sense.The Chiefs had a week off following their shootout loss to the Rams in Los Angeles, giving not only Berry an extra period of time but everyone else a chance to get healthy. And with the Raiders up next on Sunday, the Chiefs probably don't need Berry to get back on the field right away.That means he would have two weeks of practice 鈥?at minimum 鈥?to shake off the rust and return to the field, then four regular-season games and the playoffs to make an impact this season."I think we'll just take it day by day and see how he does," Reid said, when pressed on what to expect when Berry does return. "I don't have an expectation either way on that. I wouldn't know how to gauge that right now. But I know he is feeling better. He's gotten a little bit better every week."The issue appears to be with Berry's heel, close to where he tore his Achilles tendon in last season's opener. But neither the Chiefs nor Berry have been willing to discuss it in detail."It's not one of those things that heals overnight. It's not how it works," Reid said. "So I think we just start him off slow and see what he can do when that thing feels right, whether it's this week or next week or whenever. There's no expectation there."Maybe not for Reid, but there certainly is an expectation for Chiefs fans.They watched the Chiefs (9-2) lose their only two games in nip-and-tuck road shootouts to the Patriots and Rams Authentic John Johnson Jersey , and it's hard to believe a healthy Berry would not have made a difference.Because while the Chiefs' beleaguered cornerbacks have actually fared quite well this season, at least when advanced metrics are considered, their safety situation has been a major downfall.It hasn't helped that Daniel Sorensen has only been back a couple of weeks after breaking his leg in training camp, or that rookie Armani Watts landed on injured reserve as he was finding his stride.Throw in Berry and that's three starting-caliber safeties that have been missing.Reid didn't have much other injury news Monday, pointing out that players were still trickling in from a lengthy break. A snowstorm that blitzed through Kansas City on Sunday may have caused a few of them to be delayed, but Reid said that everyone would be present for meetings and practice.He did say that wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who has been dealing with a troublesome foot injury, remained in Kansas City last week to get treatment. Reid said Watkins' foot is "still tender," and it's unclear whether Watkins will be available this week against Oakland.Just about everybody else should be ready to go."It was at a good time," Reid said of the bye week, "and not because of Thanksgiving and my waist line that goes with that, but I just thought it came at a good time for our team. You know Authentic Cooper Kupp Jersey , it was an opportunity to rest up later in the season and that can be important as you continue down the stretch." The margin of victory in three of the Los Angeles Rams last four games has been three points or less. Two of those victories (against Seattle and Green Bay) have been by just two points. The Green Bay Packers had the best chance to beat the Rams on Sunday. Had it not been for a costly turnover by Ty Montgomery on the kick-return, the Packers may have won that game. Aaron Rodgers is most clutch when he’s behind. But the Rams made the play when they needed it and kept their undefeated record intact. The Packers nearly beat the Rams by setting the tone early and being relentless on defense, especially in the pass-rush. Setting the tone The Rams ran no-huddle on the first drive and on third-and-four, they should have had the upper-hand on the Packers defense. Yet on the snap, Green Bay stayed in zone, which kept most of the field covered. Goff, who had all the time in the world to run and a lane that could fit an 18-wheeler, saw Bradin Cooks too late on a curl and got sacked. On third-and-five, Packers go shotgun and send everybody but Devonte Adams on 5-6-yard routes. Adams, however, throws a double-move which allows him just enough separation. The Rams send five pass-rushers and Rodgers waits until the pressure is right in front of him to whip a rainbow pass to Adams chest on the run. The Rams appear to be in Cover 2, but Jimmy Graham is able to find an open field for the 22-yard reception. Lamarcus Joyner shifts over to Rodgers X-reciever Authentic Rob Havenstein Jersey , who in this case was Marquez Valdes-Scantling. After Graham slips past Cory Littleton, Josh Johnson appears to get fooled by Rodgers eyes as he whips himself into a circle, thinking maybe the ball was going to Geronimo Allison. On this play from the 1-yard line, Ndamukong Suh falls over (I believe he was trying to get the jump on the play and blow it up), which actually ends up helping the Packers. With him on the ground, Corey Linsley is able to get to the second level and block Bryce Hager. The Green Bay pass rushOn this play, Havenstein hops to his right too much, which throws him off balance as he’s trying to overcorrect on his block. it blows up in his face with one move from Matthews. On the same drive, Blake Martinez uses a great cut-step to push through John Sullivan for the sack. Had Todd Gurley not moved over to shore up the left-side protection, this could have just been a throw-away incompletion. On a separate drive in the second quarter, the Packers send the blitz, which Martinez pretends to be a part of. But Martinez hangs around to split Sullivan’s attention before he drops back in coverage. Sullivan gets beat by Kenny Clark Womens Robert Woods Jersey , who appears to kick out Goff’s legs for the sack. He didn’t throw his full bodyweight on Goff so I guess that’s cool. This game reminded me a lot of 2016 Robert Havenstein. He was undisciplined and panicked. Take this play for example. He initially takes a first step towards the defensive back on the outside, then steps back inside and turns towards the pressure that isn’t there, giving the outside rusher enough time to pressure Goff. The Packers pass-rush found success from inside and outside the tackles, and LA should tip their flat-billed Dodger caps to Green Bay. The defense found a way to apply pressure without having to sacrifice their pass-coverage. Its also rare to see Andrew Whitworth get beat like that. The swing pointIn my opinion, the Rams were able to swing momentum back their way when Mark Barron recorded the safety to give LA its first score of the game. Bell Byran, who was the RG on this play, decided to go to his right, which gave Barron the opening to shoot the gap and tackle Aaron Jones. After this play, the Rams found the end-zone before halftime and it felt like the Rams were on even ground with the Packers.
