Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry is expected to make his first appearance of the season during Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers after being sidelined with a heel injury, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Berry last played in Week 1 of the 2017 season, when he ruptured his Achilles. He's missed 29 games since then, including the postseason.
The Chiefs teased Berry's return in a hype video Wednesday.
The three-time All-Pro was reportedly dealing with a Haglund's deformity in his Achilles, which causes a bone spur to dig into the tendon.
Berry's return should be a major boost to the Super Bowl hopeful Chiefs, who own the league's worst pass defense and are allowing 282 yards through the air per game.
