The Kansas City Chiefs will honor Eric Berry, who was placed on the non-football illness list last week after what trainers said is a "leading consideration" of lymphoma, a few different ways Sunday night against the Broncos.
At the urging of the players and with the blessing of CEO and Chairman Clark Hunt and coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs will be wearing the popular red-on-red uniforms once again Sunday night.
Berry loves the red-on-red look, and the players thought this would be one way they could honor him against the Broncos.
Besides donning red on red, Chiefs players, led by veteran safety Kurt Coleman, along with the help of the players committee and veteran leaders Alex Smith and Justin Houston, designed a T-shirt honoring Berry.
"Be Bold, Be Brave, Be Berry."
That's what is printed on the shirt, which should be available at some point to fans in the near future, and the proceeds will go to Eric Berry's foundation. The proceeds will then be sent to a research institute from there once an official diagnosis has been made.
One of the veteran leaders said this was important to the team because it's about more than football. One of their teammates is the midst of a "life battle" and that Berry has stood in front of them so many times before as a leader and now it's their turn to lift up their brother.
Along with the jerseys and T-shirts, the coaches attire on the sidelines will include a "29" printed on the front of their jackets.
Berry is back home in Georgia with family and is aware of the shirts his teammates have designed and will wear in his honor tonight.
