INDIANAPOLIS — Despite missing all but three games in the 2018 season, Chiefs safety Eric Berry isn’t having surgery on the sore heel that kept him sidelined for most of the year.

Asked about the status of Berry’s nagging injury during a Wednesday media session at the NFL combine, Chiefs coach Andy Reid told local reporters that Berry hadn’t had surgery since the season ended — and wasn’t expected to have any.

“I think it’s all positive,” Reid said of Berry’s status. “He didn’t have surgery. That’s not what he did. Or have to have surgery. That’s kind of where it’s at.”
