There’s “a chance” safety Eric Berry makes his season debut Thursday night when the Chiefs play host to the Chargers in a prime-time game, coach Andy Reid said Monday.

Berry, who missed four months of practice nursing a sore heel, has been a limited participant in practice the last two weeks. Prior to that, Berry hadn’t taken the field since Aug. 11 during training camp in St. Joseph. Reid said Berry is continuing to “gradually” get better.

“He was getting better as the week went on,” Reid said of Berry’s progress and availability for Thursday. “We’ll just see how it goes here these next couple of days. There’s a chance.
