Justin Houston is going on the PUP list to start the season for the Chiefs. Another starting linebacker, Josh Mauga, will go on IR after having hip surgery. Backup fullback Trey Millard was waived with an injury. The Chiefs get a roster exemption for newly signed safety Eric Berry, so they can be at 76 players for the time being.

Kenneth Acker, a backup cornerback acquired by the Chiefs over the weekend in a trade with the 49ers, said he was unaware of the national anthem controversy involving Colin Kaepernick. "What did he do? What happened?" Acker said. Acker played in the game in question, on Friday night against the Packers. "His legs hurt maybe or something," Acker said when told Kaepernick sat down during the anthem. "I was actually (facing) the flag and had my hand over (his heart) and I was looking up. I didn't know."

Here's how serious Eric Berry was about staying in shape for his eventual return to the Chiefs. During his absence from training camp, Berry worked out during the same hours that the Chiefs were practicing. "I tried to tailor things toward the way practice is structured and the way the game is structured," Berry said.

Chiefs' Reid: Berry 'ready to go' after signing deal

Andy Reid declined to discuss the imminent arrival of unsigned safety Eric Berry: "i've fished once or twice and I don't count the fish until it's in the boat." Reid said.

Knile Davis finally entered the game for the Chiefs in the fourth quarter. He was the third back in the game and two backs who will make the team, Jamaal Charles and Charcandrick West, aren't playing because of injuries.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Knile Davis was a standout of last year's playoff win over Houston, when he returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown. But his time with the Chiefs may be coming to an end. He didn't play, not as a returner or at running back, even though he was suited up in today's game against the Chicago Bears. The first round of cuts are due by Tuesday.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs limited the Bears to 20 first-half yards and two first downs in 18 plays. Too early to say their defensive problems are over, but still a good sign.
