Chiefs' Eric Berry Has Mass In His Chest, Will Get Tested For Lymphoma

Chiefs safety Eric Berry will miss the rest of the season after doctors discovered a mass in the right side of his chest. Berry reportedly complained of chest pain after Thursday's game against the Raiders. The team placed Berry on the non-football injury list, and he'll go to a specialist in Atlanta to be tested for lymphoma.

Berry released a statement through the Chiefs:

I am truly thankful for all of the support from family, friends, coaches, teammates and the entire Chiefs kingdom. At first I was in shock with the diagnosis on Saturday and did not even want to miss a game, but I understand that right now I have to concentrate on a new opponent. I have great confidence in the doctors and the plan they are going to put in place for me to win this fight. I believe that I am in God's hands and I have great peace in that. I know my coaches and teammates will hold things down here the rest of the season and until I am back running out of the tunnel at Arrowhead. I am so thankful and appreciative of being a part of this franchise and playing in front of the best fans in the NFL. I will be back!
