(KANSAS CITY, Mo.)— Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry is no closer to returning to the field and is "literally day-to-day."
"I know Coach as said it's day-to-day," said Rick Burkholder, VP of Sports Medicine and Performance. "It is literally day-to-day. He won't practice, but he's spent a lot of times with us. He's improving, getting better every day, so we'll continue with that process."
Berry has not practiced since Aug. 11 at training camp in St. Joseph.
"He's letting us know he's improving, which is the most important thing," Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said. "He actually had a great day of work today and we'll just see how it goes."
The Pro Bowl safety tore an Achilles tendon back in Week 1 of 2017 against New England.
The Chiefs open the season Sunday on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers.
