AP source: Chiefs S Eric Berry gone for the year

Posted: Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says Chiefs safety Eric Berry has a torn ACL in his left knee and is done for the year.

Berry was hurt in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to Buffalo during a block by Bills receiver Steve Johnson, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the Chiefs have not disclosed details of the injury.

The second-year strong safety made the Pro Bowl last year and was being counted on heavily by the defending AFC West champions, who were hammered 41-7 at home by Buffalo in the opener.

Berry, a former Tennessee star, made 72 tackles and four interceptions last season, returning one of them for a touchdown.

He was the fifth overall pick in the 2010 draft and he started every game his rookie season.
