Eric Berry will not play against Chargers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Eric Berry's return to the Kansas City Chiefs' lineup will have to wait at least another week.

The Chiefs ruled the three-time Pro Bowl safety out of Sunday's game against the Chargers in San Diego. Berry has a high ankle sprain and missed his second straight day of practice Friday as the Chiefs finished their on-field preparations for Sunday’s game.

"He tried it the other day but he couldn’t go," coach Andy Reid said. "He tried his heart out to get this thing right, and it’s just not feeling right."

Berry hasn’t played since injuring the ankle in a Week 2 loss to the Denver Broncos. He practiced for the first time since the injury on Monday and worked again on Wednesday. The Chiefs then shut him down for the remainder of their practice week.

Two other injured players, wide receiver Donnie Avery (sports hernia) and nickel back Chris Owens (knee) also will not play against the Chargers.
