Help is on the way for Kansas City’s secondary.
During his Monday media address, Chiefs coach Andy Reid revealed cornerback Kendall Fuller could make his return Sunday against the Seahawks despite having surgery on his hand last Friday.
“He’s doing well,” Reid said, via the Kansas City Star. “This is a short term thing. There’s a good chance he has an opportunity to play in the game coming up here.”
Fuller suffered the injury in the team’s Week 14 win over the Ravens but still managed to play in Thursday’s loss to the Chargers with a cast on his hand. He went under the knife the next day.
Given the Chiefs’ extended rest period of 10 days, Reid is confident Fuller will be feeling well enough to play in Week 16. He added that safety Eric Berry, who made his regular-season debut Thursday, can expect an increase in his practice and playing time as long as he continues to progress with his Achilles recovery.
“We’ll see how that disperses out there and what the plan will be for this coming week,” Reid said of managing Berry’s playing time. “The positive was that he came out feeling good. He was sore. He hadn’t played in a long time.”’
Seattle (8-6) is slated to host Kansas City (11-3) at 8:20 p.m. ET Sunday.
