KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The loudest cheer of player introductions before Thursday night's game between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium was reserved for safety Eric Berry. He was playing in his first regular season home game since being diagnosed with lymphoma last November.

Berry also made his return to the starting lineup in the game against the Broncos. He had been playing as a backup but started this game at free safety in place of Husain Abdullah, who was on the injury report this week with a strained quad muscle.
