Romeo Crennel Discusses Return Of Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles

During Wednesday's press conference, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel discussed the status of stars Eric Berry and Jamaal Charles, and whether they will ever resume the form they had before sustaining serious knee injuries. According to Crennel:

"All of those guys are playing and producing, they’re practicing, so they are good enough to play. Whether they’ll ever be back to what they used to be, I don’t know if that’s going to be the case because you’ve had some reconstruction on your knee. Will it ever be like it was before the reconstruction? I don’t know if that will be the case, but that does not keep guys from playing this game."

When asked about Berry specifically, Crennel said they would be cautious with players coming back from major injuries:

"He seems to be doing as much as he can do. He seems to be doing OK. Tony is doing OK. Jamaal is doing OK, but I think that we, and when I say ‘we’ I’m talking about myself and my staff, we have to be cognoscente of the fact that those guys have had major injuries and are trying to recover from major injuries. So, it just doesn’t seem to be smart to just beat the guys’ knee up. When you see a guy is limping, it’s not smart to beat him up. If you lose him again, then you might not have him at all. I think there is a thin line that you kind of have to walk sometimes."

Charles was held to just three yards on six carries against the Buffalo Bills, and has yet to find the end zone during Kansas City's first two games. Berry has six tackles through two games and no interceptions.
