A day later, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid took a moment during his news conference to address whether the team would consider making an in-season move via trade to help the roster.
"Right now we don't have anything and that's not where we're at," Reid told reporters Monday, via the Chiefs official website. "I know the rumor is out there, but that's not where we're at."
Nevertheless, perhaps there is more to the Thomas reports than what Reid can publicly disclose.
Berry has dealt with a heel injury that has prevented him from practicing since early August and he's also returning from a ruptured Achilles tendon he suffered in the 2017 regular-season opener.
The Chiefs are hopeful that Berry, who has shown positive signs during the rehabilitation process, can resume on-field work this week, Chadiha reported. Chadiha added the more realistic expectation is that Berry could return in time when the Chiefs host the Jacksonville Jaguars at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 5.
