KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs had good news with a pair of All-Pro players.
Strong safety Eric Berry (right heel) and running back Jamaal Charles (foot) were on the practice field Monday afternoon.
Charles missed the second preseason game and dressed for the third preseason game, but didn’t play.
Whether Charles plays Thursday night remains in the air.
“We haven’t made those decisions yet,” offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said. “Coach will make that decision later this week and we’ll see.”
Berry, who suffered his injury during training camp practice in St. Joseph, Mo., has yet to play in preseason action.
Wide receivers Dwayne Bowe (quad) and Junior Hemingway (hip), cornerback Damond Smith (abductor), defensive end Mike Catapano (illness), left tackle Eric Fisher and offensive lineman Ryan McKee (knee) did not practice.
The Chiefs did not have an immediate response surrounding Fisher’s absence. [UPDATE: Fisher did not practice due to illness, according to a team spokesman.]
Catapano, who hasn’t dressed for a preseason game, missed nine days of training camp practice in St. Joseph, Mo., and three days since the Chiefs returned to Kansas City.
The Chiefs practiced Monday afternoon in shorts and helmet in 99-degree temperatures.
