Chiefs safety Eric Berry was held out of drills the first day of training camp by head coach Romeo Crennel. On day two, Berry demanded he get some action and Crennel couldn’t have been anymore pleased with the results. Berry, who missed all of 2011 with a knee injury, showed minimal signs of rust after ten months of rehab shutting down wide receivers in 11-on-11 drills. Berry had the upper hand on second year wide receiver Jonathan Baldwin during most of those drills and held his own against Dexter McCluster.
This sign could certainly bode well for the Chiefs defense which struggled last year in pass coverage. With a healthy Berry in the secondary, plus first round draft pick Dontari Poe doing exceptionally well in third down pass rush situations, the Chiefs could see a major upgrade in 3rd down defense this season.
